10 Fun and Family-Friendly Urban Farms to Explore in Singapore

10 Fun and Family-Friendly Urban Farms to Explore in Singapore

Over the last year, gardening has become quite a trend in many cities worldwide. If you’re interested to see how urban farms look like in Singapore, read on for more! 

Our list below is filled with places where you can not only explore these urban farms, you can also buy the local produce fresh from the garden!

1. This may just be the future of farming: Sky Greens 

Forget ordinary garden beds and plants growing in straight rows, instead get a load of Singapore’s first rotating vertical garden where in fact, all of the plants and herbs that they sell is grown in a vertical greenhouse, where everything grows upwards, instead of on the ground.

These vertical systems are 9 metres high and consist of around three levels in which various greens grow from – it’s also pretty cool just to check out, as well as super inspiring!

This began in big cities like New York and Amsterdam. Now we have a rooftop garden farm here in Singapore that cultivates herbs and veggies to sell to the local community!

Utilising hydronic technologies in their grow setup, they’re able to produce their greens using minimal resources – making it ideal for an urban setting. Shop for herbs like chye sim, basil, Green Emerald lettuce and more!

3. From live microgreen boxes to edible flowers: Edible Garden City​

Community gardens are pretty common in Singapore, except you’ll usually find them at ground level. These guys have chosen to make use of rooftop spaces in the city, growing their beds of herbs, flowers and produce up here instead.

And get this: they’ve formed a grow-your-own food initiative through their Foodscape project, offering their services in helping you to create and maintain your own food garden.

5. Specialising in producing the tastiest, freshest spinach in town: Artisan Green

Sometimes the risk you take with growing any plant outdoors is it becomes subject to outside, natural forces such as bugs, disease, and unclean air.

Taking extra care, Artisan’s fresh greens are grown indoors in a controlled environment, using hydroponic technologies and they’ve opted for a vertical garden system as well. They’re also eco-conscious, making sure to use 90% less water than most soil-based ground farms!

I live to travel and I travel to live. I'm a travelling Gypsy with a passion for the English word, being inspired daily by the different cultures and colours, scents and scenic overloads, sensory explosions, and mind-awakening experiences. The ones that take your breath away. Walking along with the earth, one country at a time, it's what I live for; a life full of adventure, sharing my thoughts and experiences through literature.
