About this event

We are a group of friends coming together hoping to add-value to how we deal with food waste management and farming. We envision the farm to be a platform for education, bringing the immediate and extended communities around Beauty World to see and feel, how food waste is being recycled through the different methods of composting, and how the compost could then be applied to farming and the production of edible plants.

When the farm is up, we will be engaging stakeholders in Beauty World to contribute their food waste (vegetable/fruit) for our compost. We want to show people that it is not difficult to practice food segregation and putting waste to good use. As such, we have also secured the SGEcoFund to enable us to share this hands-on knowledge to the wider public. You can find us on the Ministry of Sustainability & Environment website, no.34: https://www.mse.gov.sg/resource-room/category/2021-12-29-media-release-projects-awarded-under-sprout-sg-eco-fund/

We spent 8months pitching to the building owner and coordinating with the relevant authorities and its agencies. Now that we have finally gotten the approval, we need your help to bring the farm to life, bit by bit, part by part, you can see the farm construction till it is operational.

Thing to Note:

1. It can be very hot from 11am onwards, which is why we have organised the work into Sunrise and Sunset Shifts. The timeslots 8:30-12pm and 4pm-6:30pm are only suggested time frames, you are free to come within whichever time frame that suits you.

2. Bring your household food waste such as vegetable ends, fruit peels, egg shells, mouldy bread, or any carbohydrates (biscuits, snacks, nuts, beans, noodles, etc). No onions, garlic, chili, acidic food, dairy product or oil please as the worms don’t like it.

3. Bring any egg crates, cardboard boxes, newspaper, to make work homes with us :)

4. Bring your own gloves if you prefer not to share/wear used ones, sunscreen, hat, long sleeves, comfortable footwear, BYOB.

5. We do provide some chilled drinks.
