As we head into rainy season and turn our minds to the end of term holidays in Singapore, we are constantly wracking our brains for fresh new projects to get the kids involved in during their time off of school. By now you will have caught our urban gardening adventures: our green thumbs have been in overdrive growing our own salads and greens from our balconies and small outdoor spaces, and we won’t lie to you, we’re feeling rather proud of our seedling-to-harvest efforts.
From chocolate zucchini fudge brownies to plant-based skin and hair care, these local companies go out of their way to make these feel-good products for you.
Six weeks into our urban gardening project, our little patch of green is flourishing nicely. So far we’ve covered how to get started with your own balcony garden, growing herbs and salad greens from seed and now we’re ready to enjoy some of our own home-grown produce. But we’ve also encountered a few speed humps along the way…
We’ve teamed up with Aerospring Gardens and are on a mission to grow our own food from our balconies! In our second instalment, we’re learning how to grow plants from seed…
Apartment living has its upsides, but a bountiful garden isn’t usually one of them. We volunteered to try to overcome the challenges of the balcony by joining forces with Aerospring. Here’s part one of our little adventure.
Ordinary People's Angela Manners comes to visit us at our Pandan Valley urban farm to tell our story from the ground up.
Time to give the oft-overshadowed parent some extra lurrrve! We’re talking about the hero who probably taught you how to cycle, built your first dollhouse and showed you how to tie your shoelaces – don’t you think the man deserves a unique Fathers’ Day gift this year?
Think you can't grow and consume your own greens in Singapore? Think again.
Space for gardening is hard to come by in a dense, urban and metropolitan city like Singapore. Most of us live in apartments and might only have a balcony for outdoor space. Add the fact that we live one degree north of the equator and conditions for growing edible plants prove very challenging.
The farm-to-table movement is taking on a new face in Singapore, as land for farming is fast disappearing. ScandAsia takes a closer look at this trend, since several Nordic start-ups have entered this sector in Singapore. Here, a home-grown solution, intended for use by the consumer in their own homes, in which a so called ‘vertical aerophonic gardening system’ concept has been fine-tuned by a Dane.
If you’ve ever read the success of Twitter’s story by Biz Stone, you’ll realize that it’s amazing what “constraint” can do for creativity. The constraint of a 140-character limit to every message you tweet, so to speak. And in Singapore’s case, the constraint of space! But necessity is indeed the mother of invention, and creativity can bloom in the face of concrete chaos—just like in the case of Aerospring Gardens.
