    Gardening With Edibles

    We are familiar with plants that grow on land but look further and you can find some that can grow partially or even fully submerged in water. Here are three common water plants you can consider growing.


In this issue, we are giving away three copies of the A Review of Garden Bird Watch book.

Nature provides us with all that we need for living, and inspiration on how amazing life can be! The rediscovery of species once thought to be gone from Singapore, like the Neptune’s Cup Sponge, is an uplifting reminder of how life continues despite adversity.


With International Day for Biological Diversity (22 May) coming up, let us admire the sheer diversity of life and strive harder to protect it. Our little island alone is home to a high number of species –just look at the different type of blue birds and bananas you can find here! Celebrate Singapore’s natural heritage at NParks’ Festival of Biodiversity (21 and 22 May) and learn more about how to conserve it.


You can care for nature in many ways, such as by being mindful when interacting with wildlife and natural habitats like our native forests, or maintaining biodiversity-sustaining gardens. All these contribute to our  City in Nature vision, a key pillar of the Singapore Green Plan 2030,  the national movement on sustainable development.


Keen to find out more about Singapore’s biodiversity? Check out our NParks Buzz microsite and NParksSG YouTube channel, or head out to your nearest park, garden or nature reserve! When
visiting indoor facilities, such as museums, galleries and enclosed visitor centres, please remember to wear your mask and stay safe. For the latest advisories on the COVID-19 situation, please visit
