Urban Wilderness: A Foraging Tour of City Hall

Urban Wilderness: A Foraging Tour of City Hall

Calling all urban adventurers! Looking for hidden gems to explore? We've got you covered. Edible Garden City is stoked to host a foraging tour of two rooftop farms located right within the City Hall district, comprising of our never-seen-before Raffles City Rooftop Farm that is typically closed to the public and the Funan Urban Farm.
The morning starts at Raffles City (yes, that Raffles City, right at City Hall MRT), where we have a closed-to-the-public rooftop farm. Track the back alleys of the mall before arriving into a green oasis sitting atop the retail spaces. Here, get ready to get ruggedly up-close with nature, as you duck under our lemon tree, press your nose into flowers and taste leaves straight off the trees. Finally, enjoy a short hands-on tea brewing session while taking a breather sitting on overturned pots. 
We then adjourn together to Funan Urban Farm, just a short walk from Raffles City. A multi-sensory tour of the 7th floor garden awaits. Indulge your senses in fragrant kaffir lime leaves, admire flowering plants and caress taro leaves. Experience nature as intended - with all our senses fully engaged. Following the tour, enjoy a short potting activity; our experienced trainer will guide you on stem propagation, and you get to bring your new little plant baby home as well! The session ends with each participant receiving 2x $5 vouchers from Tiong Bahru Bakery.
Highlights at a glance:
  • Enjoy a foraging tour of our closed-to-the-public Raffles City rooftop farm
  • Savour fresh farm teas, brewed using fresh harvests
  • Multi-sensory tour of the Funan Urban Farm
  • Hands-on potting activity - learn how to grow your own edible plant using stem propagation
  • 2x $5 vouchers from Tiong Bahru Bakery
We invite you to bring your own mug or drinking container for the tea brewing session if you wish. Please bring your own bag to bring home your newly-adopted plant baby as well.
We look forward to a wildly fun time with you!


All attendees regardless of age require a ticket. Please note that the tour will be conducted in English.
