In Life Storeys ...Life in the HDB Heartlands

In issue 2 -Dec.2011 , the CG was featured in a write up In Life Storeys .... Life in the HDB Heartlands, Live Green .... Power to the Youth article. The link is here ....

An even younger batch of Heartland Ambassadors from Xinmin Primary School also got to put what they learnt to the test on 12 November, at the official launch for the adoption of Wu Wo Yuan community garden at Hougang Avenue 4.

The project is also a Community in Bloom – in the Heartlands initiative that aims to encourage green enthusiasts to actively participate in the community via gardening.

Fourteen of these primary school ambassadors guided and briefed Grassroots Adviser Mr Yeo Guat Kwang, the guest-of-honour and MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC, as he explored the community garden. They also showcased the results of the blossoming garden — among them were sweet potato, bitter gourd, and sand ginger — to residents from the neighbouring blocks who had dropped by.
These ambassadors also set up a recycling booth to share simple recycling tips with the residents. Prior to this, these students had participated in HDB's 'I love my Community Garden!' — a one-day learning trip where they learnt more about gardening in the heartlands.
