About this event

About the Programme/Event

Join Mark, an urban farmer from VertiVegies as he takes you on a journey into the dynamic world of modern agriculture.

This programme is recommended for children aged 10-13.

This programme will be conducted in a workshop style and will cover the following topics:

  • Singapore’s Food Story

You will trace the journey of the food on your plate and learn where it comes from, the challenges that we face as a nation with respect to food security. You will also be introduced to our “30 by 30” mission and the Singapore Green Plan initiative. Alongside, you will also gain insight on the “3 food basket” approach adopted by Singapore Food Agency (SFA). 

  • Introduction to Urban Farming

The focus today is on Urban Agriculture. Join us in understanding the principles of Urban Agriculture as we introduce you to the different types of urban farms you can find in Singapore and how they play a crucial role in combating climate change, reducing food waste and contributing to our food resilience, as a nation.

  • Basics of Plant Systems

This topic will take you through the various stages of the plant life cycle and how a plant growing outdoors differs from a plant grown in an Controlled Environment. Participants will also understand the basic science behind controlled environmental agriculture and how it affects a plant’s photosynthetic ability.
