The joy of Gardenasia’s programmes is that it is a fun learning experience for kids, while at the same time being a blast-from-the-past for the adults. As such, our Green Programmes can be catered to schools as well as corporations – we believe you are never too young (or too old!) to learn from Nature.
Green & Nature-based Workshops
A terrarium is a container designed to house small plants in controlled conditions. The closed nature of a terrarium creates an environment that is easy to control. This allows people to simulate anything from the desert all the way to the rainforest! In this hour-long workshop, you will truly take back with you a piece of Nature, put together with your own hands.
Recycled Art Workshops
When you really get down to it, the number of things you create or re-create with unwanted or unused materials are endless! Learn how to do your small part for the environment by reducing waste, recycling material, and reusing them for a whole new purpose! Here’s what we’ve narrowed down to retain the essence and relevance of some real hands-on fun.
Be inspired by our local artist’s unique creations in their use of recycled fabric, and create some of your own! Surprise yourself learning new, simple and clever tricks to reuse that old fabric and unwanted materials. Your imagination is the only limit in this crafty, hands-on workshop.
Turn heavy stacks of old magazines and unwanted cardboard boxes into fun and functional items for the house! Be surprised at the inspirational ideas that our local artists come up with, and then have a go at creating them yourself – both economic and environmentally-friendly, these handmade items could be a great topic of conversation for your house guests!
Watch how a useful enzyme forms after undergoing a fermentation process with water, brown sugar, oxygen and kitchen waste (eg. fruit scraps & vegetable peels). Unlike commercial detergent and washing agents, fruit enzymes are 100% natural. With no chemicals and additives involved, this is one product you can use everyday without worrying about harmful effects to your hands and skin.
Most people think of cooking oil as greasy, unhealthy, and occasionally indulgent. But did you know that the oil used to deep-fry delicious snacks can be recycled and made into soap? And did you also know that Gardenasia’s generators run on biodiesel made from Old Chang Kee’s used oil? In this workshop, discover how – after going through various complex chemical processes – used oil can be refined and turned into useful products such as soap and biodiesel!
Leisure & Nature Activities (available on-site only)
There aren’t many spaces around Singapore these days where you can literally set up and run your company’s very own Carnival – but thankfully Gardenasia is one of them! Games stalls, food carts, bouncy castles, joy rides… a carnival provides everything you need for a much-needed company day out!
In the 9-metre depths of our pond, there lies a huge collection of edible and ornamental fish. And if you don’t already know, the pond at Gardenasia is known for its “Sure-Catch” guarantee! Gardenasia welcomes young and old to relive the good old days of the kampong here with us – authentically complete with a live worm bait and a bamboo rod.
