UiTM Holdings’ Go Green CSR Activity 2022 – Kebun Keluarga Malaysia by Koperasi Kebuniti Selangor Berhad (KOBUNITI)

UiTM Holdings Sdn Bhd (UHSB), under its Go Green CSR Activity 2022, has taken part in the Green Community Project by Koperasi Kebuniti Selangor Berhad (KOBUNITI) at its Kebun Keluarga Malaysia in Section U12, Shah Alam.

On 21 August 2022, UHSB Chairman Dato’ Sri Shahril Mokhtar attended the Opening Ceremony of ‘Kebun Koperasi Keluarga Malaysia dan KOBUNITI Agro Park’ by Tan Sri Noh Haji Omar, Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives.

Following this, UHSB had participated in the initiative by KOBUNITI for private companies, government agencies or individuals to rent agricultural plots for the purpose of the B40 community in the area to use to generate income and subsequently have more participation in agricultural and sustainable activities.

We sponsored the rental of 5 plots of land at the farm, which is now largely being used by the local B40 community to grow vegetables and other edible crops to grow, sell or barter trade their crops.

Our team from Group Corporate Development/Group Corporate Communications as well as Kelab Sukan Rekreasi UHSB (KSRUH) visited the Kebun Keluarga Malaysia on 8 November 2022 to tag our plots and also meet with the Koperasi Kebuniti Selangor Berhad (KOBUNITI) and it’s subsidiary (farm management) under KOBUNITI Nursery and Landscaping Sdn Bhd (KOBNL) team.

Pn Zaza Johari, KOBUNITI, Manager and Cik Aina Syakirah Suhaimy, KOBNL Agronomist, were on hand to show us the many crops at the farm including red and green chillies, birds eye chillies, sweet corn, cucumbers, ladies fingers, tomatoes, coriander, pineapples, kangkong, petola and many other decorative plants and herbs. All the plants are organically grown and can also be purchased directly from the farm. The 15-acre farm also operates a plant nursery and a fresh water fish pond for fishing enthusiasts.
