Get your hands dirty! And enrich your soul!


Ground-Up Initiative, otherwise known as GUI, is a project for people to get together and reconnect with the earth. Led by Tay Lai Hock, volunteers engage in farming activities to better understand where their food comes from, and the energy it requires before it reaches the table.

Lai Hock recently told me that he feels that taking people to the source of food is more effective than telling them to reduce, reuse and recycle.

They appeared on Channel U’s City Footprints in December. Check out the video here.

  • About Green Drinks Singapore

    Founded in November 2007, Green Drinks Singapore is one of more than 800 cities with a Green Drinks presence.

  • We are a non-profit environmental movement that connects academia, green businesses, activists, community and government, for knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities. We do this by organising informal talks every last Thursday of the month, over drinks! Once in a while, we hold discussions, documentary screenings and workshops to further engage the public and participants.
  • Started in 1989 in London, the Green Drinks movement is a self-organising network that is meant to be simple and unstructured. The global site can be found at
