Opening of community garden at COMNET@Sin Ming
On July 16, 2017 (Sunday), Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister, Prime Minister's Office, 2nd Minister for Manpower and Foreign Affairs and Adviser to Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC GROs, together with Dr Ang Seng Bin, Chairman of AMKFSC, officiated the opening of the community garden at COMNET@Sin Ming.
At the garden, Mr Ng Song Chuan, programme coordinator, introduced to Mrs Teo the fruits of the seniors' labour, including blue pea flowers, an ingredient found in nonya kuehs.
Then, Mrs Teo took part in a planting ceremony and watered a guava plant. At the event, the minister commended the thoughtful use of cement for the ground at the community garden, adding that the cemented floor made it easier for seniors on wheelchair to participate in gardening.
Thank you very much to our community partners Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council and Housing & Development Board (Bishan branch) for their tremendous support in making the community garden possible, as well as student volunteers from Nanyang Girls' High School for their efforts in assisting our seniors and beautifying the garden!
