Children from PCF Sparkletots Preschool@Bukit Gombak Block 395A taking a break at a small plot of Chinese spinach that they grew. The plot is in a garden along the Bukit Gombak-Hong Kah North trail, one of two new community garden trails launched on Tuesday to let people learn more about gardening and meet gardening enthusiasts in their area. The 6km trail runs through nine gardens, including those with bonsai, passion fruit, yellow cosmos flowers and red button ginger. The new trails, including one in Teck Ghee, bring the total number of such trails to five, said the National Parks Board.
