Workshop: Farming: Basics of Organic Growing by Edible Garden City

Description

This workshop is sold-out. To join the waiting list, please email ntuccaideasfest@ntu.edu.sg


Learn how to grow your own food organically as well as other knowledge about planting such as soil fertility, watering, and pest management. Participants will also be propagating plant cutting that they can bring home and nurture a pot of their own creation.

This workshop is part of The Harvesting: An Urban Farming Initiative, which serves as a platform for knowledge exchange on food, facilitating a debate concentrated on the domestic sphere. Spanning two weekends during CITIES FOR PEOPLE, the project will catalyse a discussion examining the larger socio-political condition surrounding personal control of the food system, as well as looking at how locally grown food and small-scale and urban agriculture can be agents of self-expression and assertion.


Part of CITIES FOR PEOPLE NTU CCA Ideas Fest 2016/17.

BIOGRAPHY
Edible Garden City (Singapore) is dedicated to the "Grow Your Own Food" movement in land-scarce and import-dependent Singapore, advocating the use of under-utilised urban spaces such as rooftops and sidewalks for growing food. With more than 15 year's of farming and construction experience, Edible Garden City designs, builds, and maintains food gardens in tropical urban Singapore, using sustainable growing methods, resource recycling, and waste minimisation.
