Time Out says
City Sprouts is a social enterprise that strives to encourage urban farming in our concrete jungle while building meaningful relationships between communities. At its grounds on Henderson Road – which occupies the former Henderson Primary School – you can find Singapore's first plot-share urban farm, also known as the Sprout Hub. Families and individuals can invest in a vegetable plot here and choose what they want to plant with helpful guidance from the community farmers.
Aspiring urban farmers and experienced farming enthusiasts come together here to learn from each other. This element of community is something City Sprouts hope to grow. Besides urban farming, there are guided tours and workshops for all ages, educational events that promote sustainability and local produce, and also sessions where farmers on the plot get to participate in the harvesting process at the end of the growing season. So not only do you get to walk away with fresh, pesticide-free produce, you might make a friend along the way too.
As the coronavirus situation has shown us, we can't just rely on foreign imports for our food. And while Singapore moves towards its "30 by 30" food production target where we grow 30 percent of our food needs locally by 2030, City Sprouts offers a great way for you to get in on the action. Nurture your green thumbs and cultivate a love for gardening and grow your own food – the environment and your stomach will thank you.
