We were privileged to conduct a Composting For Beginners workshop for 200 participants at the Environmental Building.
Our workshop was part of the 12th Central Singapore Environmental Regional Workshop jointly organised by the National Environment Agency – Central Regional Office (NEA-CRO) and Central Singapore Community Development Council (CS CDC).
Participants consisted of district councillors, grassroots leaders, corporate partners, schools and town councils representatives.
