About Kebun Kebun Bangsar
The founder of Kebun Kebun Bangsar is Mr. Ng Sek San, who happens to live in the vicinity.
Kebun Kebun Bangsar was born out of a desire to create a garden that is accessible to all, free of charge.
And with approval from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) in 2017, Mr. Ng secured seed funding from Think City KL. Since then, they have never looked back.
Mr. Ng Sek San wants visitors to come back as often as they like while contributing to a good cause. As Kebun Kebun Bangsar serves as a community garden too. Vegetables from here are donated to those in need.
But in December 2021, a landslide ravaged the farm. As a result, Kebun Kebun Bangsar is accepting donations for the first time since it opened.

Composting pods take up some space, so parking slots are few at Kebun Kebun Bangsar.

Alternatively, you can park on the side of the main road. Or at the back of the farm, which is a safer option away from traffic.

Animal Residents At Kebun Kebun Bangsar
Inside, we saw a white sheep and his brown partner. The sheep playfully nudge their snouts on guests carrying vegetables or hay. Their bristle-like coats make petting a sensorial experience.
To the left, ducks, geese, and a peacock graze for food scattered by visitors. While two friendly dogs loiter around.
There is also a fish pond where fish wait patiently for their food.
Besides the resident animals, you can spot wildlife like spotted doves.

After you pass the fish pond, you will see where various vegetables. From long beans, herbs, spinach, okra, and many more. The bountiful harvest from the farm is for refugee families and the poor.
A short hike up the hill will take you to a covered shed where mushrooms are grown. We enjoyed the panoramic views here. The hill overlooks vegetation and land beyond.
On the way to the top and end of the farm, we saw 4 cows grazing on grass.
