Community Gardens

North Bridge Rd, Singapore

The proposal involves working with students from Nanyang Polytechnic, horticulturalists, grassroots leaders and existing resident gardening groups to develop the design and implementation of a barrier-free and edible community garden and gathering area for the residents of Beach Rd RC.

The project explores the use of affordable, recyclable and everyday materials such as tyres and plastic barrels in co-creating a community garden with the residents. A cabin head was also sourced from the scrapyard and transformed into a playground and seats for all walks of life to enjoy.

The community garden was officially opened by Member of Parliament Ms Denise Phua on 1 Dec 2018. Children, youths, families, elderly and wheelchair users were invited to the community garden to harvest the grown herbs, spices and vegetables.
