About this event

Let’s sing a different kind of blues together. Enjoy a weekend of calm and fun, and join us in learning more about the Blue Butterfly Pea!

The blue butterfly pea is almost ubiquitous in several Southeast Asian cultures, possibly because the plant is also native to this region, growing easily in our crazy hot weather.

Lately, the blue blooms have been given a revival. Having proven to be ‘Instagram-worthy’, strikingly beautiful blue culinary creations have paved the way for the new generation to discover this heritage-rich plant.

Join Edible Garden City and Tiong Bahru Bakery, and jointly supported by Funan and lyf, on a fun exploration into the wonderful blue butterfly pea plant, in the brand-new workshop “Blue Genes: Blue Pea Growing Workshop with Blue Bell Latte”.

In this session, join us for a guided tour of the Funan Urban Farm and learn about how we grow high quality produce for restaurants right on the rooftop of a shopping mall, before we delve into the deep blue world of the butterfly pea flower. Find out about:

  • The nutritional and health benefits of blue butterfly pea.
  • How to grow blue butterfly pea and how to care for it.
  • Fun ways to use blue butterfly pea in dishes.
  • How to brew and enjoy a perfect cup of tea using farm-dried blue butterfly pea flowers.

With the orange sun setting on Singapore's iconic cityscape as a backdrop, get introduced to our aquaculture system, indoor grow room, edible walls, and cascading garden terraces. For an added dimension, taste the different varieties grown there, and eat your way through the newest urban farm in the CBD.

The session also includes a guided hands-on session, when you will prepare your own planting medium and sow blue butterfly pea seeds. Soon, you’ll be on your way to nurturing your own glorious blue pea plant! Additionally, enjoy a mug of freshly-brewed non-caffeinated Blue Bell Latte made by Tiong Bahru Bakery's expert brewers.

As part of the workshop, you will receive:

  • A Butterfly Blue Pea Grow Kit - a packet of potting mix, seeds and self-watering planter (worth $29).
  • A medium plant pot and a bag soil to transplant the seedling.
  • A packet of dried blue butterfly pea flowers to make tea.
  • Freshly-brewed non-caffeinated Blue Bell Latte from Tiong Bahru Bakery

About the Blue Butterfly Pea Flower

Practically no scent or flavour. Vivid deep blue colour flowers. Flower is rich in anthocyanin, a potent antioxidant that is also what gives it its fascinating colour-changing properties. The antioxidants in butterfly pea can rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen synthesis and lessen the signs of ageing. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of flower extract can also help alleviate pain and reduce fevers.

About Funan Urban Farm

Edible Garden City's 7th floor urban farm at Funan is an educational showcase of indoor and soil-based farming, as well as vertical growing and aquaculture. One of the few urban farms in Singapore open to the public, and the first urban farm to be designed into a Singapore shopping mall from the onset, it is an example of how farming can be seamlessly integrated into city living.

This workshop is recommended for young adults and adults aged 13 and above. Please note that the session will be conducted in English. This workshop requires a minimum of 6 pax to run.
