NParks will also guide and share horticultural knowledge, gardening skills and tips with residents, students, teachers, staff and volunteers who are keen on starting up gardening projects. We’ll teach you how to:

  • Choose a suitable site for gardening
  • Work out the garden layout
  • Select plants
  • Make the most of your gardening skills

For residents of public and private housing estates, NParks works with the Residents’ Committee (RC), Neighbourhood Committees (NC), or Residents’ Associations (RA) to deliver support to participants.

Do contact NParks early as it takes about three months for a community garden to be installed from inception to construction.
