MNS Selangor Branch Flora Committee is looking for volunteers to maintain the nursery located next to MNS HQ at JKR641, Jalan Kelantan, Bukit Persekutuan, 50480 Kuala Lumpur. The present gardener has been unwell and the nursery’s upkeep is in need of assistance.
Since Flora Group plans to plant local trees from seed to seedlings for distribution to the public to encourage preservation of our local species and greening of our community, we seek all MNS members and the general public to lend us a hand to make this project a reality. Besides watering, weeding, potting or carry out repair works at the nursery, you will be meeting and working with like-minded people who cares for the environment and wishes to give back to the society by planting more trees not only for human’s enjoyment and benefit but all living creatures such as birds, bees, frogs, etc.
You don’t have a garden at home? Why don’t you treat this nursery as your little green haven? Bring your picnic basket along if you wish….to enjoy the fruit of your labour of the shade and coolness that the nursery provides. It is another form to de-stress from your hectic worklife or to add more greens / colour to your life!
Those who are able to commit to do gardening at least once every month (on Sat morning from 8am to 12noon), kindly contact by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For those who are unable to commit yet is interested to help, you are welcome to register with us too.
We plan to kick start this project on the 3rd Sept 2016 at 3pm after our Afternoon Session at 2pm (would be good though if you could join us for our indoor session at 2pm on the 3rd of Sept).

The fight to save Taman Rimba Kiara is still very much on-going. Due to the sensitivity of the issue, I would like to apologize on behalf of The Resident Association that not every progress can be shared openly through Facebook.
However I would like to appeal to all residents of TTDI to join our PASSIVE PROTEST in the form of a Merdeka Picnic at Taman Rimba Kiara on the 21st of August from 3pm to 6pm. Bring your own food and share with each other.
While we have our picnic, we can also catch some Pokemon. There are some rare pokemon here in Taman Rimba Kiara as well as a Dragontini nest.
See you this Sunday. And if you see me and would like to suggest how to make TTDI better, I am all ears.KDCF Day 20 AUG 2016

CONSERVATION OF DIPTEROCARPACEAE & OTHER LOCAL TREE SPECIES IN THE KLANG VALLEY
Most of the Dipterocarpaceae species that dominated and structured Southeast Asian lowland rainforests are currently endangered.
Obstacles for the conservation of Dipterocarpaceae can be found in their particular ecology as well as in the limits of conservation approaches that paradoxically focus on the management of natural environments rather than the integration of man-made landscapes. The presence of multiples small patches of local forest remaining within the Klang Valley provides unique opportunities for designing buffer zones and urban corridors consisting of Dipterocarpaceae and other local tree species planted in urban environments and capable to strengthen and to promote existing conservation networks. In this perspective of integrating tree conservation in man-made systems, new information technologies including open-databases and participative geographic information appear as promising tools for collectivities to archive the target of Malaysia’s 2020 national strategy to “promote and encourage the understanding and participation of the public and institutions for the effective conservation and protection of biological diversity”.
Concrete approaches for the implementation of new technologies to achieve ecologically and socially integrated tree conservation within the Klang Valley will be discussed.
Session 2: SEEDLINGS PLANTING
This is an outdoor activity to be conducted at the MNS Nursery at the end of Session 1.
Join us as we plant seeds that had been collected, germinated, and other garderning activities required ie watering, weeding, etc. or just to network with your fellow “Greenies”.
Do bring along your drinking water, insect repellant, hat, gardening tools and gloves.
