Special Interest Talk August 2014: Composting and Kitchen Gardening

MSCPMP Circle Special Interest Talk #4 had an extraordinary luncheon session  with Ms. Tan from CETDEM.

Wonderful testimonial from our memberss,

“Its refreshing to eat Ulam, my second serving”. J.T

“I have a lots of fun and learn a lot this time. This is “value”. C.T

“My wife and I feel fortunate to join the rest for the “Organic” lunch. We find the vegetables to be crisp and delicious. The slides presentation is informative. It would be great if the Project Organizer can show live demo on composting process as this is the key ingredient in organic farming”. C. L & Esther

“The event help me understand what CETDEM is trying to achieve and how we can help in creating a better environment for the next generation. And making compost is possible if there is a will”. J. L

Upon arrival, we were amazed to find a greenery organic farm in the heart of PetalingJaya.  A garden filled with flourishing, edible leaves and vegetable. Stepping into the house, a neatly lined up dining setting for our feasting.  From seat to spoon, all done with its full detail. Ms Tan introduced the Slow Food concepts. It took much time for the volunteers, Fern and Mrs Yeoh to complete the preparation.

We were served with an freshly juicy Ulam where the leaves and spices were from the garden. Then, the highlights of our lunch, organic rice served with fresh leaves, home make pickles, accompanied with a bowl of herbal soup, a glass of lemongrass drink AND best chilly padi. We continued with an hour session talk on:

  1. The history of CETDEM and it’s effort in organic farming.
  2. Conventional growth vegetables vs organic/home grown vegetables.
  3. Types of vegetables suitable to be grown with minimal space.
  4. Composting technique sharing

We thank you for CETDEM’s effort in making this Special Interest Talk a success. Creating the awareness of importance of organic farming so that we will be more environmental conscious.
