On behalf of the Cub Scout Roundtable (CRST) and MINDS Lee Kong Chian Gardens School (SPED) Scouts and students, we would like to thank you for your support of the pilot run of the ‘Every Scout a Farmer’ / Gardener Badge Project.
We are pleased to announce that the project is back for its second run this year. This project offers individually packaged gardening kits to Cub Scout units for the attainment of the Gardener Badge.
The collaboration aims to provide Special Needs (SN) Scouts and students the opportunity to gain authentic work experience on a community-led project. Through tasks such as packing as well as marketing of packaged products, eg. gardening kits, the collaboration also avails volunteering opportunities for the disadvantaged amongst us. In this way, they too can feel that they can play a part in contributing to society.
SSA strongly encourages the inclusion of neurodiverse individuals in all walks of life, providing opportunities for everyone to be active, contributing members of society and to be accepted for who they are. The Association looks forward to having many more ongoing partnerships that foster inclusivity.
The gardening kit consists of a pack of Kangkong seeds, good quality potting mix, and materials to design a small plaque or signboard which Cubs may use to personalise their mini garden. Each kit also comes with a one-of-a-kind hand- rendered artwork from our SN partners which can be kept by Cubs as a memento. With the completion of the challenge, Cubs would have achieved the Gardener Proficiency Badge.
Please refer to Annex A for more details.
As the quantity of the gardening kits is limited, registration is based on a first-come-first-served basis. Kindly register via MSDS’s Youth Programme registration portal: http://intranet.scout.org.sg by 30 September 2023. Accepted registrations will be duly notified.
Do feel free to contact Ms Emily Ho, Executive (Programme) at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 62592858 for any clarifications.
