On June 23, Kebun-Kebun Bangsar, a community farm in the area, received a notice asking them to vacate the plot of land. 

This has caused a big issue as the community farm is well-loved by many people from all walks of life. Some love it as it helps them to destress when volunteering there, while others are grateful for the educational experience they get when helping out.

The vegetables from the farm are also given out to underprivileged people. 

In a statement by DBKL, they acknowledged that Kebun-Kebun Bangsar has received a lot of support from the community and is a farm that should be exemplified. 

“Kebun-Kebun Bangsar, operating since October 2016, is an exemplary project for gardening activities using TNB’s power lines reserve land and should be emulated if carried out following the rules and conditions set.”

They added: “Various activities have been carried out to become a successful model garden, visited by various local and foreign delegations besides receiving various grants from Khazanah Nasional and ThinkCity for a good placemaking initiative.”
