YEG Orchard Garden

It has been an eventful year for the YEGs. Aftre selling the Shoo Mozzie at various events in 2009, they have managed to raise enough funds to plants beautiful orchards around Mayflower Secondary School.

The YEG first identified areas around the school where orchards can be planted.

One area was near the classroom block.

Another area was outside the school.

The YEG is so happy that more students can now enjoy the beauty of orchards.

The YEG is grateful to Mr Han our Operation Manager for helping to source for areas to plant the orchards and Ms Faridah for working so hard to select the orchards.

The YEGs were at the Central Singapore Clean and Green Carnival 2009 on Saturday 5th Dec 2009 at City Square Mall.

They were there to teach the public on how to make natural mosquito repellents.

We first explained that lemon grass, which is a common herb that can be found in our kitchen, is an effective and safe natural mosquito repellent.

This is how it is created.

First you have to kill all the germs on your hand with the germs killer.

Do the same with the container that will be used to hold the insect repellent.

Next combined the essential oil (two drops of lemon grass and four drops of Citronellan oil) with 180 mg of goat milk cream. And there you have it.

Safe and simple with no preservatives or DEET (which is a common ingredient that is found in many commercial mosquito insect repellent)

The YEG had the opportunity to share with our Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Wong Kan Sing and the Mayor for Central Singapore DistrictZainudin Nordin about our product.

It was an enjoyable experience and an enriching exercise to spend the weekend at the Clean and Green Carnival.
