Our Farm

When we came across 896 Dunearn Road, the rooftop was a wasted deadspace. Considering its strategic location and the communities in the vicinity, we immediately fell in love with the space and the potential of breathing new life onto the rooftop.

FAQ

City Sprouts is a sustainable plot share urban farm employing organic and permaculture principles. Our goal is to decentralize food production to the people and empower the community to grow their own food.

Plot share allows you to rent a personalized vegetable plot to grow food for your family and yourself under the guidance of our community farmers. To make the most out of your plots, our community farmers will tend to them throughout your subscription.

We believe that the nationwide movement of working towards food independence should be an inclusive one. Everyone should be their own urban farmer and no one should be limited by black fingers or space constraints. Furthermore, you no longer have to break your head over the origins and quality of your vegetables. By farming with us, you become part of a journey to creating a more self-sufficient and healthier Singapore.

Yes, but within the limits of the available plots.

Our methods are guaranteed organic, our farmers do not use pesticides or herbicides and we follow the principles of integrated pest and disease management.

However, there has yet to be an organic certifying body in Singapore and since we are not a production-based farm, our vegetables do not qualify for overseas inspection.

We believe that everyone is born with green fingers, and we are here to help you unlock that. Our friendly community farmers are always more than happy to guide you and impart their skills and knowledge.

Your community farmers will maintain your crops for you e.g. watering, fertilizer application, weeding, pruning, harvesting etc.). However, you are highly encouraged to commit your time ideally once a week to care for what you grow and get involved with the community.

If you are unable to come down to harvest your produce, you can authorize a friend or family member to harvest on your behalf. Alternatively, you can notify us to share your harvest with other members or donate it to a good cause.

As the vegetable plots require consistent care and maintenance, we do not offer the option to pause your subscription. You can authorize a friend or family member to harvest on your behalf or share the harvest with other members or donate it.

Alternatively, if you know someone who would like to take over your subscription, we can make arrangements to transfer your rights to them.
