Within our condo area, there is one of these very few rambutan tree. Beside the Clementi 6th Avenue side gate.
The rambutan has grown ripe. So, it is time for harvesting.
We need tools. This is the scissors that tied on the extendable stick. With rope and simple system to pull and cut.
We need ladder too.
Let’s get to work!
So far so good.
Of course, where ever shorter people cannot reach, taller people will need to come in and do the remaining.
Kids are waiting below waiting for the fruits to come down.
Kay Kay felt so proud of be part of the plucking team.
So, what do they learn?
1. Plucking fruits does not come easy. It involves hard work. So, don’t waste food.
2. Sharing is important. So the rambutan tree grows within the compound, so, it has to be shared to whoever walk passed, and lastly, majority of it goes to the security counters, sharing it with the cleaners, gardeners and security guards.
3. Tools to pluck. Tools to harvest.
4. Dangerous things involve in the plucking process.
It was a fun day.
Not to mention the quality time they spent this morning at our little garden inside the condo too.
Let the kids dirty their hands, make them plant, and let them learn why it is important.
They love it. And they feel great!
