Workshop: Weeds, Wildflowers, and the Wonders of Nature by Nature Society (Singapore)


Nature reserves and parks are often thought of as places to seek out beautiful and interesting plants. It may surprise some of us that fascinating and useful plants can actually be found all around us – many people call them weeds. In this workshop we will look for “weeds”, see where they grow, and identify them. We will search for information on their ecology, their broader distributions, and their various uses. Come prepared to spend a day learning about amazing plants that we see (and more often than not overlook) every day. We may discover that our neighbourhoods are richer and more beautiful than they already are.

Venue: Various locations around Gillman Barracks
Meeting Point: NTU CCA Singapore, Block 43 Malan Road
