Welcome to Ground-Up Initiative (GUI) Thematic Garden blogpost series.
In this series, we will be posting updates on the current thematic garden – Ulam Garden, take you through the journey and behind-the-scenes of setting up the garden, as well as sharing with you knowledge on herbs and plants that can be found in the garden.
Before we go on and introduce the Ulam Garden to you, let’s ask ourselves an important question first…
Why not just plant herbs/spices that can be used for general cooking?Well… that is usually one of the ways most people who do gardening would usually be doing. However, have it dawned on you the wonders you can do with all the different types of herbs at just one-go?
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to head into a garden to harvest a variety of herbs and used them all in a common dish?
With that in mind, we embarked on our adventure to build GUI’s first-ever thematic garden, where the herbs and plants grown within this special space have been specially selected so that they could end up being harvested and cooked together to create a flavourful dish, called “nasi _____”!
We have come to the end of our very first post on #guithematicgarden and #ulamgarden!
Thank you for taking the time to read and here’s wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
We will be uploading a new post once every two weeks on Tuesday. Do stay tuned to our very next post (16 January) where we will reveal to you the name of this dish!
Please take note:
Ulam Garden is currently not open to the public.
However, if your organisation or company is interested to organise a team-bonding programme where the staff get to visit the Ulam Garden, personally harvest the herbs required, and cook up a delicious plate of nasi ulam together, you are most welcome to contact us here.
If you are interested to volunteer with GUI, we will be very grateful to have you! You can reach out to us here.

Hope to see you around in the Kampung Kampus!
