I was pleasantly surprised some time back when Shirley from CIB, NParks told me that there will be a Thank You Reception for the speakers who delivered gardening talks to the public in the libraries.
What’s more, CEO NParks, Mr Ng Lang, will be gracing the event and giving out the certificates of appreciation to them!
The efforts of our GCS members to share our knowledge with the public have been recognised.
In turn, we also gave our tokens of appreciation that were designed by Phillipe to our collaborators from NParks, AsiaOne.com, Home Concepts, the Singapore Gardening Society as well as the National Library Board to thank them for their support.
It is hoped that fellow members of GCS will come forward to join in this effort to promote gardening by introducing and sharing their plant interests with fellow Singaporeans.

The members who received the certificates with the rest of NParks management staff that I have been happy to have worked together with to promote gardening.
I am surprised when I was told by a NParks staff that she needed my photograph as well as a short paragraph about what I do in Green Culture Singapore which will be published in their Annual Report for the Year 2006/07. I never expected this!
The annual report appeared online on NParks corporate website yesterday. Located at the last page of Chapter 2 of the annual report is my photograph as well as the short quote about what I do….

It is indeed a very honoured moment for all members in Green Culture Singapore where our efforts to promote gardening to masses have been acknowledged. I thank those of you who have supported the forum as well as for all the prayers!
I hope that for those of you who share the same sentiments and vision as I do come forward to join us hands together to promote gardening as a way of life here in Singapore, a City in a Garden, where her citizens are actively involved in creating and maintaining the greenery in this country!
