Plot Share

How It Started

Farming, once the most noble profession that gives and sustains life, is now often overlooked due to the convenience and availability of food. While Singapore is taking big strides towards being more food secure, most farming models do not address the disconnect between our people and food production. This motivated us to follow our calling, to put the nobility back into farming.

The Plot Share Model

This model was inspired by our belief that every individual can and should play a part in making Singapore food independent. To realize that, we have empower and integrate the community is into modern farming. Unlike conventional production-based farming, plot share lets people of all ages, from all walks of life share a space, to interact, learn and exchange farming practices under the guidance of our community farmers.

How It Works

Step 1

Select the plot package that suits you best and register with us.

We will then inform you the date in which the next plot is available for you. When your subscription starts, you will have access to your private plot where you will find all the necessary information of your plot e.g. your plot package, your growing plan as well as the upcoming events in the farm

Step 2

Start planting!

Select your crop varieties and get your hands in the soil! Our community farmers will be there for you and guide you through pesticide-free and sustainable practices to cultivate your crops.

Step 3

Enjoy your vegetable plots and watch your crops bloom.

Ideally once a week, we invite you to come during the opening hours of the farm to reconnect with nature and engage in the growing process. Make an appointment with us so that we can get a friendly community farmer to help you during your visit. In addition, you will receive updates on the progress of your plots throughout the season. At the end of the season, come down to harvest and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
