As Singapore aims to improve food resilience, the National Parks Board (NParks) will be giving out seed packs to households that register for them.
Inside each seed pack, there will be two packets of seeds and accompanying instruction in four languages.
The two packets of seeds will contain one type of leafy greens and one type of fruited vegetable.
The leafy options are Chinese Flowering Cabbage (Cai Xin), Chinese Kale (Kai Lan), Chinese Spinach (Bayam), Kangkong and Xiao Bai Cai.
The fruited vegetables include Brinjal, Cucumber, Lady’s Finger, Long Bean and Tomato.
These seeds take only four to eight weeks to grow and are commonly used in local cuisines and are given at random.
Here’s a video from Mr. Desmond Lee, Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for National Development on the program:
