WHY Edible garden city? 

We’re a real farm

We are not a grocer and we do not use a middle man. We are farmers selling the produce directly to you. Yes it’s quite a crazy task we are undertaking! Things may be a little messy at the beginning (please be kind!), but this means we don't make huge mark-ups on our prices, and you get the freshest possible food!

We’re an experienced grower and have supplied more than 100 restaurants and bars 

We are not new to this. We have been producing high quality high-valued crops like micro greens, herbs and edible flowers for more than 50 restaurants and bars in Singapore for the past few years.

We’re socially inclusive

Every day, 9 adults with special needs come to Citizen Farm to grow your food. We work closely with the Autism Resource Center to help create employment opportunities for them. Supporting us will in turn support them!

FAQ

What is Citizen Farm?

We are a sustainable closed-loop urban farm that integrates natural systems with modern technology. We aim to build a more robust and sustainable urban farming model for the world at large, and to produce fresh, safe and tasty greens for our community.

 

What is Citizen Box?

We are offering a weekly veggie bundle full of healthy, locally grown greens for you and your family. This bundle will contain all sorts of vegetables, herbs, microgreens, mushrooms and even flowers from time to time. 

 

Why should I subscribe to Citizen Box?

For starters, you will…

  • Support farmers who are revitalising the age-old and life-sustaining occupation of farming. 

  • No longer have to settle for vegetables that are grown in places you don't know about by farmers whom you’ve never met, in conditions and standards you are unsure about. 

  • Receive Citizen Farm’s 100% safe and fresh veggies grown by honest, local chaps, farming in the heart of our city. Convenient for you to visit and find out more about farming! 

 

How much is Citizen Box?

For a 12-week subscription, each box is $35 per week. For an 8-week subscription, each box costs $40 a week. Up front payment required. Delivery is available at a $13.50 surcharge (per delivery). A one-time $20 fee is required for two Citizen Box insulated cooler bags to keep you produce safe and fresh.

Repeat subscribers who already have the two cooler bags in good condition will not need to buy new ones. But if you prefer to have more bags in rotation, they are available for purchase at $10 each (non-subscriber price = $15).

Can I use my own cooler bags?

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate other cooler bags, as our Citizen Box bags are custom-made for the size to accommodate the amount and size of our produce and boxes.  In addition, our special needs colleagues will be helping with the packaging of Citizen Box. The uniformity of the boxes will smoothen the process greatly, ensuring that the veggies get to you in the soonest possible time after they are harvested.

what is the delivery process?

As part of the subscription, you have also purchased two cooler bags. Your produce will be packed into these cooler bags, to ensure that they are kept as fresh as possible on their journey to your home.

 

Each week, we will pack your produce into the cooler bag, to be delivered right to your doorstep by our courier partner. The two bags will be used in alternation. In the spirit of recycling, we also encourage you to wash and return any plastic boxes for another delivery cycle.

Who are the farmers at Citizen Farm?

We are a team of ex-professionals seeking a more natural lifestyle, retirees, part timers, students, volunteers, and adults with special needs who have been equipped with urban farming skills by Edible Garden City. We have big dreams for the future of farming in Singapore, and we hope that you will join us on our growing journey.

 

Can I visit the farm?

Yes! We hold regular events and open houses at our farm at 60 Jalan Penjara. You can also find us at farmers’ markets and events around Singapore. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.

 

We can also host private events, tours, talks, workshops and retreats at our farm: get in touch with us at farm@ediblegardencity.com. 

We are however unable to host casual visits as we are a fully operational farm and need all hands on deck to grow your food. If you would like to recce our site, please ping us at the above email address and we will arrange for a meeting with you!

Can I make changes to my order?

We welcome any feedback! Let us know what you like and don't like, and we will try our best to adjust production accordingly. While you may be familiar with some of the veggies in Citizen Box, others may be new to you. Check out our Facebook or Instagram for more information about the produce and how to use them. 

Change in delivery mode, from self collection to delivery

Sure! While we cannot make any promises, we will try to make it happen. If we are able to arrange for the change, do note that you will have to top up $15 per delivery for fewer than 12 deliveries (upfront payment required for the remainder of the subscription period). If you are unable to collect the box and require ad hoc delivery for the week, please inform us a week in advance and we will arrange delivery for you. An additional surcharge of $18 will apply per ad hoc delivery. 

Change in delivery mode, from delivery to self collection

Sure! Please let us know which self collection slot works for you. However, we are unable to refund you for the unused deliveries. 

I am unable to collect my box or receive the delivery this week. What do I do?

If you are unable to receive or collect the Citizen Box for the week, you can gift it to someone else (self collection for anyone). We are unable to give you a make up box or refund the missed week.

 

how do i open a collection point near my home?

We are all about reducing our carbon footprint, while still making collection of the Citizen Box convenient for our customers. Hence, if you are able to host the box collection for a cluster of your neighbours (3 or more), we would love to bring you in as a Citizen Box community leader. We'll even throw in some perks for you! :)
Why do I need to pay the full amount upfront?

An upfront payment helps us to buy seeds, soil and other materials needed to grow the produce for your Citizen Box. We understand that it is a commitment on your part to pledge the full fee upfront, and we assure you that we are similarly dedicated to giving you the freshest and high-quality produce for the entire harvest season.

why is the delivery fee collected upfront?

Upfront payment for delivery is required, as it helps us to plan the logistical resources, and keeps the delivery fee lower. If you have selected to pick up your box during your subscription, but require ad hoc delivery, please contact us and we may be able to arrange delivery for you. An additional surcharge of $18 will apply per delivery. 

Cancellations

We strive for 100% satisfaction with your box but if there are certain circumstances that force you to cancel, please let us know!

 

If you have a friend who would like to take over your subscription, you can transfer it to them for self collection. Additional delivery charge may be incurred for a change of delivery address on the subscription. Alternatively, you can donate the rest of your subscription, or simply forfeit it – we’ll figure out what to do with the produce. 
 

I am unable to commit to the programme, but would still like to purchase your produce. How can I do that?

We regularly sell our produce at farmer's markets around Singapore. Head over to our Facebook or Instagram to be updated with the latest happenings. See you there!

Can I farm at your farm?

We’re glad you are interested in farming with us! We don’t have any gardening allotments to lease out, but if you are interested in starting out a small urban farming business, please send a proposal to farm@ediblegardencity.com and we will get in touch with you.
