Registrants have to collect their seed packets at a physical location.
The National Parks Board (NParks) announced that it would distribute 3,000 free seeds packets on Mar 20. By Monday, all the seed packets were fully redeemed.
NParks first distributed seeds under the Gardening with Edibles initiative in June last year, with hopes to encourage more Singaporeans to garden with edible plants at home.
The initiative aligns with the Singapore Food Agency’s “30 by 30” goal, where 30 per cent of Singapore’s nutritional needs should be locally produced by 2030.
Due to high demand last year, NParks distributed 400,000 seeds instead of the targeted 150,000 seeds.
While the seed packets were previously distributed by mail, successful registrants for this current round will need to collect their seed packets at a physical location.
NParks has provided an array of seed choices, including pumpkin, winter melon, radish.
For gardening newbies who need help gardening with their seeds, free online workshops and tutorials on gardening are available on the NParks YouTube channel.
Individuals who successfully harvested their seeds can submit their plants for judgement in the upcoming Community Garden Edibles Competition, which will be held in Oct 2021. The winners for categories like “Heaviest Vegetable” will win gardening gift vouchers.
If you have already redeemed the plant seeds, you can register as a participant for the Community Garden Edibles Competition here by Apr 20.
