Siloso Beach Resort was one of the exhibitors at the Clean and Green Singapore 2016 Launch, held from 5 – 6 Nov. Our main objective in our exhibition was to showcase our Eco friendly resort, its sustainable features and what we have accomplished so far. Considering the exhibit theme of creating a Zero Waste Nation, we focused on explaining a close loop cycle involving feeding wood waste to the earthworms to produce fertiliser which will be used for the vegetables going back to the cafe. We also informed guests about our efforts to preserve trees and bio diversity that are still continuing to flourish in our resort. Over the course of the 3 days we have given out over 200 bottles of castings fertiliser to the public, which was a huge success.
On 25th July 2016, in collaboration with the Community in Bloom (CIB) Initiative – a nationwide gardening movement, Siloso Beach Resort participated in the Singapore Garden Festival by opening up a booth from 1 to 4 pm to showcase our sustainability efforts regarding our wormery.
The Singapore Garden Festival is a bi-annual event organised by N-Parks and Gardens by the Bay. Held at Gardens by the Bay from 23-31 July 2016, this Festival promises a magical world with exquisite garden designs and floral masterpieces. Be it professional gardeners and families out for a day of fun, there is definitely something for everyone to do.
Our CSR team went down to set up a booth with our earthworms and hundreds of bottles of earthworm castings! Numerous varieties of plants, ranging from herbs like rosemary and basil to roses and lemongrass, from our resort were displayed and used to decorate our booth to show the different plants that SBR has grown using our own castings!
Complimentary bottles of castings were given out to the public in light of spreading the word of how the wormery is an integral part of our one-of-a-kind waste management system. It plays an important role in a closed loop cycle in our resort and the resort has indeed benefitted greatly from it. The response was great with a never-ending crowd in the span of a mere 3 hours!
SBR is proud to have been a part of the Singapore Garden Festival 2016 and we hope all those who have visited our booth have learnt something new about the wonders of earthworms!
