EGC Virtual Experience: Farm Tour & Microgreens Workshop

July 24, 2020

Take a peek behind the scenes of Singapore's urban farming movement. Join Edible Garden City's farmers on an exclusive online farming experience, complete with a virtual tour and microgreens workshop!

Singapore is moving onward towards its goal of growing 30% of our nutritional needs by 2030. Get to know the faces and places driving this movement, and find out how being a land-scarce, hot-and-humid nation like ours could actually work in our favour.

Meet our farmers (yes the session will be interactive), hear their stories, and take a virtual tour of the highlights of Edible Garden City's main farm, located right in the heart of Queenstown! Discover the wonderful world of edible flowers, native plants, and yummy veggies, all grown in Singapore, for Singaporeans. Find out how we turn limitations into opportunity, and find out how we use natural methods to grow our food.

 

Afterwards, hone your own green thumbs with a hands-on microgreens growing experience. Tasty, easy to grow and nutrient-dense, microgreens are a wonderful addition to your meals to have as salads or tasty garnishes for your food. Typically seen in fine dining restaurants, they're suitable for home growing - lucky for all of us!

 

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • The nutritional benefits of microgreens.

  • Techniques and methods to grow microgreens at home.

  • Ways to use microgreens in your dishes.

  • Hands-on time! Prepare your own planting medium and sow seeds.

 

Participants will grow and nurture their own microgreens which can be harvested in 2-3 weeks' time! All materials will be shipped to you before the workshop, so that you can grow along with our trainers!

Discover the wonderful world of home gardening and join us in growing your own tasty, easy to grow and nutrient-dense microgreens. Class sizes will be kept very small, to give a more intimate experience despite the virtualness of it all, so sign up now!

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

Pyjama-based Learning: Intro to Soil Workshop

July 25, 2020

Due to popular demand, we are running a third session!

The more comfortable you are dressed, the better you learn - is this theory true? Well, as intrepid (very amateur researchers) here at Edible Garden City, we are going to test this hypothesis, with an online class! Learn how to garden while in the comfort of your home (clothes), with our new "Pyjama-based Learning: Intro to Soil" workshop!

 

In this workshop, learn more about the foundation of your plant - its soil! Good soil is essential for a healthy plant at all stages of its life, from when it is still a little youngin' coming out of its seed, to when it's time to mature and bear fruit. But what actually is soil and why is some land considered arid and others arable? What are essential ingredients in the earth that enable a plant to thrive?

 

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • An introduction to the different types of soil mixes and their components.

  • Organic supplements (compost, food waste, home made fertiliser).

During the hands-on session, we’ll:

  • Create a suitable soil mix for growing okra.

  • Learn how to grow okra and how to care for it.

 

Participants will grow and nurture their own plants which can be harvested in about 2 months' time! All materials will be shipped to you before the workshop, so that you can grow along with our trainers! Class sizes will be kept very small, to give a more intimate experience despite the virtualness of it all, so sign up now!


Please note that the online class will be conducted in English. This session is suitable for ages 13 and up.
