BUGS volunteers visited S-Gallery with their family and friends.

S-Gallery is furnished with up-to-date multi-media technology; such as 4D, AR and VR motion sensing. Visitors  immersed in the interactive learning environment can acquire knowledge related to organic agriculture, mixed agriculture, sustainable consumption, carbon footprints, biodiversity and ecosystems. Besides, volunteers also participated in an upcycling workshop. They learnt how to upcycle and transform red packets into bookmarks using seeds as decoration.

Institute of Bioresource and Agriculture also provides solution to enhance farmland productivity. Every piece of land has its own unique nutrition level, advices are given on precise fertiliser application. Therefore, improving the efficiency of the farmland and subsequently leading to reduced carbon emission in long-term. In addition, there are plenty of scientific research that supports the development of local agriculture. Topics covered ranging from transforming compost from organic food waste, to producing pesticides with Chinese medicinal herbal residues, breeding tolerant plant species, and organic agricultural management etc.
