and… the garden is launched!!

It has been a really busy weekend, with last-minute preparations for an afternoon of celebrations – starting with a green carnival, followed potluck, launch of the edible garden, lantern stroll & guessing of mid-autumn riddles.

The garden was launched by Ms. Low Yen Ling, who holds a multitude of government posts, but is really welcomed by the community as our MP. Our launch mechanism was a coconut – when the lid was pressed, spotlights on our new edible garden signage are immediately turned on! A truly innovative idea by one of our neighbours, Benny, who also helped a lot in the initial construction phases of the garden project :) 

the most innovative coconut use ever!
