DBS Initiative: A day of urban farming for the seniors
Together with DBS volunteers, more than 80 seniors from Comnet Senior Service visited the Ground Up Initiative farms! The unique tour experience brought some excitement and buzz for the seniors as it is the first time for them to visit three different farms, consisting of bee, vegetable, and tortoise farm that coexist in the same area!
“哇! 那么大的乌龟! 我没有看过这种颜色的! (Wow! Such a huge tortoise, I have not seen such colours as well!)” mentioned one senior.
Most of them was surprised to see such huge tortoises of a different breed, and enjoyed looking at the interesting test-tube rose flowers. The event ended at the main pavilion after the tour and many rounds of bingo with the volunteers. They were even gifted with organic fruits and vegetable direct from the farm.
Once again, thank you DBS for supporting our seniors!
