Tampines Eco Green Park with volunteers from Temasek Poly

Despite the rainy morning, close to 30 students from Temasek Polytechnic Community Service Club all geared up to help at the Tampines Eco Green Park with us on a Saturday morning.  As soon as we arrived at the park, Grant gave a quick briefing and demonstration on how to clear the weeds by using the spade.

We were glad that the weather was cooling enough for us to work and even for our Muslim volunteers who are fasting.  Some of the main plants we planted were Seven Golden Candlesticks (Cassia alata), Rattlebox pea (Crotalaria retusa) and Crown flower (Calotropis gigantea). 

The plant guards were added to protect the saplings from falling and to prevent grass cutters from cutting the plants

Volunteers helping one and another

On10th and 11th August (Saturday and Sunday) we will be at Siglap Secondary School to clear the weeds and water plants.  We are looking for like-minded volunteers who can come and help.  Do email ( or call 968 40950 if you can help.
