Our best-selling EGC tour is now upsized! Round out your visit to our Queenstown Farm with a tour and a gardening workshop! There's nothing better to unwind and relax than enjoying a fulfilling day in nature. Join us for the all-new "Upsized! EGC Tour and Gardening Combo".
One of our urban farmers will bring you through our unique urban farming solution, including stops at our indoor microgreens room, outdoor gardens, and container farms. Learn about the closed-loop and minimal-waste model of growing vegetables that we adopt here in our urban farm, and how farming could be used as a platform to create a more inclusive and healthy society. Find out how we are reconnecting city dwellers with nature, and about sustainable farming systems such as regenerative agriculture and food forestry.
As you touch, smell and taste the vibrant flowers and leaves, take mental notes of what senses are stimulated, and envision how you might enjoy your own edible varieties for your own farm-to-table experience at home. Then take the next steps toward that vision, as our trainers bring you through a hands-on gardening workshop. Harvest your own plant cuttings and learn how to nurture them into flourishing, life-giving, healthy adult plants. Participants will be able to bring their hands-on project (planter, potting mix and plant cuttings) home and kickstart their edible gardening journey.
During the workshop segment, you will learn about:
- How to grow and how to care for your plants.
- Edible plants that propagate well by stem-cuttings.
- Light and soil requirements.
- Considerations when gardening at home.
- Nutritional or culinary uses of selected edible plants.
- Hands-on time! Prepare your own planting medium and plant cuttings in your planter.
As part of the session, each participant will be able to take home:
- 1 bag of leafy greens, grown right here at our farm.
- Your own mini edible garden in a planter.
This tour is designed for anyone aged 18 and above. All attendees regardless of age require a ticket. Please note that the tour will be conducted in English.
