This month is Urban Agriculture Month, so I’m speaking with the amazing Bjorn Low – creator and director of the Edible Garden City project in Singapore. We talk about everything from the context of urban farming in Singapore to connecting with indigenous food systems and supporting small-scale, closed loop systems.
A proud recipient of the 2021 President’s Award for the Environment, Edible Garden City is an urban farming phenomenon, transforming Singaporeans’ relationship with food. Bjorn started the project around a decade ago and has been championing the ‘grow your own food’ movement for social, ecological and health benefits since as almost all of Singapore’s food is important. This is an amazing story of what’s possible in urban communities.
