SINGAPORE: 40,000 Primary Three pupils will each get a seed—planting kit by the end of February, as part of activities to mark 50 years of greening Singapore.
Each kit will have a pot, potting mix and seeds of either kangkong, roselle (a common home garden vegetable) or sunflower.
There will be instructions on planting and caring for the plant, as well as an activity booklet to record their observations in planting.
The teachers will receive resources such as videos and guides on Singapore’s greening journey and planting instructions for the children.
The kit is part of an initiative ’Every child a seed’ by the National Parks Board.
