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".
Before we dive into the activities, beat the heat with some fresh farm-brewed tea, while getting to know one another. Then the tour begins! 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. Join as they share their journey to becoming an urban farmer, and anecdotes of a lesser-trodden path. 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 seeds and cuttings of your favourite plants, 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, plant cuttings and seeds) home and kickstart in their edible gardening journey.
During the workshop segment, you will learn about:
- The nutritional and health benefits of herbs and edible flowers i.e. basil and blue butterfly pea.
- How to grow and how to care for your plants.
- Light and soil requirements.
- Pest management.
- Considerations when gardening at home.
- Ways to use your plants in dishes.
- 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 workshop is catered to adults, young adults and children aged 4-12 years old. All children must be accompanied by at least one adult. All attendees regardless of age require a ticket. Please note that the tour will be conducted in English.
