GO GREEN THROUGH ORGANIC Gardening. Composting: Turning Organic Waste into Black Gold !
Organic waste (from the Kitchen and Garden) which makes up about 47% of waste generated by the Malaysian household, will usually end up in a landfill. As the organic material rots in the landfill, the greenhouse gas methane is released. What can you help address this ? YES, the answer is COMPOSTING !
CETDEM’s Farmer’s Corner was held on Sunday, 16 February 2014 at the OFCC
Notice: DUE TO THE RAINY WEATHER, there might not be any organic vegetables or fruits available during the Farmer’s Corner. However, the usual sales of organic seeds, seedlings, compost and fertilizer will carry on as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
An event that happens every 3rd week of the month except on public holidays and when it does not clash with our major events. If you are looking for fresh, affordable organic vegetables and some delicious breads/quick breads, this is the place for you! Let’s see if we can serve you an exciting scrumptious breakfast on that morning!! Interested?
Vegetable seeds/seedlings, organic fertilizer, compost and compost bins are available for sale.
The Objectives of this small farmer’s corner include:
* To Cater specifically for small organic farmers as an outlet to market their produce.
* To Cultivate closer relationships/trust amongst farmers and consumers.
* To Provide fresh and affordable organically grown vegetables to consumers.
See you on 16 February, Sunday at the Organic Farming Community Centre at No 29 Jalan 19/15, Section 19, Petaling Jaya.
