Urban farm to grow four tonnes of vegetables a month on top of HDBcarpark

Singapore News, Singapore Headlines

SINGAPORE - Vegetable planting at the new Citiponics Farm @ Ang Mo Kio only began last month but within weeks it should be producing enough leafy greens to feed 1,600 people a month.

The pipes have holes cut into them, creating pockets which are then filled with tiny clay pebbles. Seeds are placed among the pebbles, which become the growing medium for the plants. "Planting started in Feb 2019, with the first harvest expected in Apr 2019. So residents can soon look forward to fresh vegetables that are produced by community, in the community, for the community."

"I hope that Singapore will have more of these farms, so that the elderly in other areas of Singapore can have the experience of working on the farm."
