GROW Campaign at Tropicana City Mall and The Mines

Early in the morning today, Mommy Jane brought Little Angels to Tropicana City Mall to join the launch of GROW Campaign that targets on nurturing the younger generation on climate change. The program is to getting the children to indulged and immersed to the real benefits from the environment thus developing gardening skills amongst children for the love of the nature.
GROW activities involve a series of organic planting in community green house by the children whom include my Little Angels. This is to encourage them to eat healthy and to preserve the environment throughout the year. Young shoppers and students from schools will be invited to the mall to plant and harvest vegetables via Hydroponic Method at the Green House. 
Held in conjunction with Earth Day and as part of the first series of the GROW year-long campaign, this activity will also cultivates the habit of giving back to the society amongst our future generation as sales from the proceeds will be donated to a charitable organisation.
During Earth Hour on 24 March at The Mines Shopping Mall, 50 students aged 5 to 12 years old from Global Modern International School and Wendy Montessori had planted seeds at the community greenhouse using the hydroponic system. The tutorial and demonstration was conducted by professional landscaper, Professor Kajendran Latchman.

The second series of GROW Campaign at the Mines was held on 20 April with the same children coming back during harvesting and with help from local grocer, Oliver Gourmet, they packed the vegetables to be sold at there and the sales from the proceeds were donated to a charitable organisation too.
Ms Paulin Lim, the Marketing Communications Manager said that The Mines Shopping Mall and Tropicana City Mall are delighted to collaborate with the local grocer, Oliver Gourmet in this year-long GROW campaign.
Ms Paulin, Professor Kajen and Mr Tham had officially launched the GROW campaign
Mr Tham Oi Loon, Managing Director of Oliver Gourmet said as local grocer, they are proud to be part of the program that gives back to the society by helping the under privileged.

My Little Angels had learned on harvesting the spinach which is their favourite vegetables in a healthier way. They also learned about organic planting and the importance of the green house to preserve our environment. They did their part in harvesting the spinach, packing and put the spinach on the display of Oliver Gourmet. They even purchase 3 packets of the spinach using their pocket money so that they can contribute to the society too. A good lesson for them on the environment and being part of the GROW campaign while eating healthily. Do pay a visit to the Green House which located just outside the entrance of the Mall when you shop at Tropicana City Mall.
