ear 2019 is an exciting year for Kranji Countryside Association (KCA). In March 2019, KCA held the Annual General Meeting (AGM), and I was delighted to be elected as the President.
In my term, I strive to promote education through farming to schools and to market immensely on local produces; educating the public on the high standard quality of local produce. Moreover, sharing the important benefits of consuming local produce, i.e. eco-friendly.
Besides, the newly elected KCA committee had strategically planned to build a vibrant and sustainable agricultural industry of that has both hard and soft power. At the same time, we continued to engage the government on various issues facing the farmers, continue to hold meaningful activities and events that uplift our community and continue to invest in next generation farmers.
Our youth wing, Singapore Young Farmers (SYF) would be creating a meaningful publication, named Growing Roots. Growing Roots aims to promote Singapore’s Farms for Agri-Food Education, Heritage and Culture.
With all these initiatives, I look forward to the many more opportunities that will come out of greater public-private-people collaboration in the coming years.
President, Kranji Countryside Association
