A Greener Home For Tampines
This year’s Tree Planting event was met with gloomy weathers, but that did not dampen the spirit of Tampines’ residents.
Some 800 participants arrived at the respective division in Tampines on 11, 12 and 26 November 2017, geared in ponchos and umbrellas - all prepared to contribute their part to a greener environment by planting trees amidst the sprinkle. Both adults and children alike had the opportunity to experience mixing the soil atop watering the plants after. They also got to name the tree.
The event that spread across the five division saw residents, together with the Members of Parliament for Tampines GRC, plant 10 Neem trees at Tampines North, 10 Manila Palm trees at Tampines Changkat, 10 Bottlebrush trees at Tampines West, 10 Foxtail Palm trees at Tampines East and 15 Syzygium Glaucum at Tampines Central.
