A garden is truly the community’s when it is nurtured, cared for and celebrated by a community.
It was always in the back of our minds that we started creating the garden in Nov 2013. On double-checking our photo records, we realised that the date for the garden’s 1st birthday was on a Sunday, and in less than a week!
Some quick discussions in our Whatsapp group channel later, we decided to have bread-fast in the park. :) Nothing too formal, just a good excuse to gather neighbours together, and enjoy food and drinks prepared by neighbours. At least 17 adults & 5 children from 11 households came, and at least 4 individuals contributed food & drinks.
We had really yummy breads from Better Breads. Four loaves of onion / dill bread, and six loaves of gula melaka dessert bread. Three loaves of each disappeared really quickly, with neighbours mentioning that the gula melaka bread is surprisingly nice.
