Herbs bring healing and greening to our little red dot. I have dedicated many years of my life to growing herbs, educating people on how to grow and use them for health and healing, and giving free herbs and herbal teas to many in need.

I wish more people would come to know that herbs can bring hope and natural healing, especially the poor and elderly who worry about the cost of medication. The young can also benefit from learning how herbs, vegetables and fruit can improve health and prevent disease.

Through my extensive travels to do research, I realised that Singapore is very fortunate to have an ideal climate and soil conditions for growing herbs. If only we can train more people who can in turn spread the healing message for the benefit of all mankind.

I am grateful that I have been able to play a small part, thanks to the tireless support and generous donations of people from all walks of life, and from Nanyang Zone 2 RC, the local Town Council  and the National Parks Board. I am also thankful to generous donors have enabled me to start a second garden at Kranji, to meet the increasing demand for herbs from Singapore and abroad. 

I would like to express my deepest gratitude and my ardent hope that more will learn and benefit from what we can grow freely in here in Singapore.

让天然草药能更深入民间

新加坡是一个寸土如金的国家,能让我有机会到各个小区帮助、鼓励把空置着的土地,好好利用来种植一些对大众有益处的草药;又能应上环保与绿化环境的契机。并为大众做出应有的贡献。也可广为大众介绍草药种植和使用方法,让天然草药能更深入民间,使用草药来养生,保健和治病;也让新时代的年轻人一起来分享,学习天然植物、蔬果、草药对人体健康的好处及提升体质。我好希望将我这些宝贵的经验代代相传下去。

抛砖引玉

本人曾经到过多个国家考察、交流,得知新马的气候、土质都很优质,而且很少受到污染。可惜是很少拥有这方面知识的义务人士出来推广、传授、讲解。现抱着抛砖引玉的念头,盼望更多对草药认知的善知识,出来互相推广,造福大众。

本人多年来默默地从事这方面的义务工作,这些年来得到个别单位的认同与肯定,还有一些赞助达人、善心人士的协助,让我能继续无忧的去从事这方面的奉献,心存感恩!

本人没有参与任何社团组织活动。我的赞助贤贵有来自各行各业的人士、家庭主妇、各区的安哥安娣、义工、甚至学生们。我谨在此衷心感谢他们可贵无私的支持,并愿他们继续支持下去。我同时感谢Nanyang Zone 2 RC居委会、市镇会、国家园林局 的大力支持,让我专心管理938这片绿油油的草药园。
