One of my friends who works at Deutsche Bank invited me to volunteer at a tree plantation drive organised by the bank. I learnt many things including the very basics of gardening: How to use a shovel and rake – and it is not as easy as it looks.

We planted two types of trees: The magnolia and holly shrub.
Here are pictures from our Saturday morning planting adventure at Ed Austin Park….
Hope to visit the park after a few years to see how tall our trees have grown
