Event description
The soil needs you. Plants need you. The environment needs you to…compost!

About this event

There must be a better way to deal with the waste we create at home, namely our kitchen, garden and paper waste. How can we design a better way to deal with our organic waste? Beyond learning about composting, design ways you and your family can make this part of your daily life at home! Join permaculture designer Nova Nelson as she shares the fundamentals of urban composting and a framework that’ll help you adapt and design a composting way of life at home or as a community.

This programme is recommended for ages 5- 12, with parent accompaniment.

About the presenter

Nova Ceceliana Nelson

Nova is a permaculture designer, a gardening coach, community farmer and educator. In 2013, she started Cultivate Central as a blog about her journey in permaculture design. After reaching more than 8000 students through gardening based educational programmes, 500 preschool and primary school educators, and building 11 productive food spaces, Cultivate Central evolved into a permaculture design practice and consultancy. Today, Nova focuses on designing and developing regenerative learning gardens and urban community farms that go on to deliver educational experiences, collaborative programmes and closed loop local food and garden ecosystems.

Organiser Playeum Ltd

Organiser of Play Sessions: Let's Create Black Gold!

Playeum is an independent charity organisation (IPC) that creates equal opportunities for children in Singapore to develop creativity and confidence through play and the arts. In particular, we work with children from marginalised backgrounds and children with varying disabilities.

We hold safe and non-judgemental spaces for children to have a voice and be heard, as well as to build 21st century life skills such as critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Through this, children are empowered to thrive and be the best versions of themselves.

Our work also supports adults in becoming powerful creative facilitators for children as we shift mindsets to seeing children as creative and competent. Over the past year, we have reached out to more than 2,200 children and adults through our impact work.
