Cultivating Sustainability: A Day with City Sprouts and the Observational and Pragmatic Research Institute Team (Singapore), May 2, 2024

As members of the Observational and Pragmatic Research Institute Team in Singapore, we actively seek out opportunities that resonate with our commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. When we discovered City Sprouts, a beacon of urban sustainability, we eagerly volunteered to immerse ourselves in their eco-conscious initiatives. Our day began with an engaging farm tour led by the passionate team at City Sprouts. We marveled at their innovative farming practices, from organic cultivation to water-saving techniques, all designed to minimize environmental impact.

Inspired by what we had learned, we rolled up our sleeves and delved into our first task: weed removal. With each weed carefully uprooted, we understood the importance of preserving native flora and fauna for a thriving urban environment.

Next, we turned our attention to pruning tree branches, ensuring the safety and aesthetics of the green spaces.

But perhaps the most fulfilling part of our day was composting the weeds we had removed. Transforming waste into valuable fertilizer demonstrated the circular economy in action.

Throughout our volunteering experience, we were struck by City Sprouts' holistic approach to sustainability. Their emphasis on education, community engagement, and environmental stewardship resonated deeply with our own values as a research organisation.

In addition to our focus on sustainability, we also prioritize employee well-being and team bonding. Our day with City Sprouts provided an opportunity to strengthen our bonds as a team, fostering camaraderie amidst the tasks at hand.

As we bid farewell to City Sprouts, we left with a renewed sense of purpose and a commitment to continue supporting initiatives that prioritize sustainability, employee well-being, and team bonding. Our day of volunteering was a testament to the power of collective action to create a more sustainable and fulfilling future for all.
