Pyjama-based Learning: Fertilising Our Plants & DIY Enzyme Fertiliser

October 02, 2020

Fertilising is incredibly important. It's an essential pick-me-up for our plants - especially if they are in fruiting and flowering season! In our next Pyjama-Based Learning workshop, our farmers share the tricks of the trade - how we make our own fertiliser using orange peels, as well as tried-and-tested products that we use on our farm.

Join us for Pyjama-Based Learning: Fertilising Our Plants and DIY Enzyme Fertiliser, and find out:

  • What is fertiliser and how to fertilise?

  • Identify common nutrient deficiency in plants.

  • Why and how is fertiliser is beneficial to plants?

  • What makes a good fertiliser?

  • Homemade vs store bought fertiliser.

  • When to use compost vs when to use fertiliser?

  • How to make your own orange enzyme fertiliser?

 

The virtual session includes a hands-on segment, where our trainers will guide you to make your own orange enzyme fertiliser. Orange enzyme fertilisers are made from fermenting orange peels with sugar and water. These enzyme cleaners are chemical-free, bio-degradeable and gentle on hands and the environment. They are commonly used to give our plants a little pick-me-up, but have uses beyond the garden as well! For instance, they can be used as cleaning agents or insect repellent!

This workshop is recommended for young adults and adults aged 13 and above. Please note that the online class will be conducted in English.

CAMP Junior Urban Farmer OCTOBER Children's Day Special

October 08, 2020

We are happy to finally welcome visitors back to our farm!

 

Times might be a little different now, but let's keep our spirits up, and keep the learning going. Join us as we bring the classroom outdoors with a safe-distanced half-day CAMP Junior Urban Farmer OCTOBER Children's Day Special! 

 

Our kids have been cooped up indoors, and haven't had the same opportunities to enjoy play and discovery time outdoors. This school holiday, Edible Garden City's staple kids' workshop takes the form of a half-day programme on the farm. The budding young farmers will learn in a fun, safe and engaging way. The programme includes:

  • Meet our farmers, and take a multi-sensory tour of our farm.

  • See, touch and smell plants and cute critters like insects. Learn that there’s nothing to be scared of, but a whole world to be explored.

  • Find out how plants, animals and insects all depend on one another, and why it is important that we protect nature.

  • Pick up tips and tricks of gardening, from growing plants from seed to taking care of mature plants.

  • Explore the multiple farm treasure and create your very own piece of art.

 

Let your kids discover the joys of outdoor exploration and sow seeds for a lifetime of nature appreciation! They will also get to take home the plants and crafts from the activities, to continue the learning journey beyond the workshop.

 

Suitable for children aged 5-10 years old. Sign up now! For the best learning experience for your child, only a limited number of spaces are available.

The Edible Garden City Tour: Queenstown Farm

October 09, 2020

Farm tours are back!

 

Here at EGC, we are going back to basics, and re-launching our good ol' public farm tours, like how we used to when our Queenstown farm had just opened. We welcome you back to our farm, with The Edible Garden City Tour - Queenstown Farm, our OG no-frills farm tour programme, refreshed with a smaller group size.

 

Discover a fresh (pun) view of Singapore, and take a peek behind the scenes of our nation's burgeoning agriculture industry. Join us as we share our vision for the future of farming in Singapore - under-utilised spaces, indoor farming systems, native plants and care farming.

 

Sip on a welcome drink brewed from locally-grown herbs, as our farmer brings you through our unique urban farming solution, including stops at our indoor microgreens room, outdoor gardens, and container farms. Join as they share their journey to becoming an urban farmer, and anecdotes of a lesser-trodden path. Learn about the closed-loop and minimal-waste model of growing vegetables that we adopt here in our urban farm, and how farming could be used as a platform to create a more inclusive and healthy society. Find out how we are reconnecting city dwellers with nature, and about sustainable farming systems such as regenerative agriculture and food forestry.

This farm tour experience is catered to adults, young adults and older children aged 13 and above. All attendees regardless of age require a ticket. Please note that the tour will be conducted in English.
