Vertical Farming

People living in urban areas often do not get fresh fruits and vegetables and this is the one of the key reasons why they prefer to grow crops themselves. But before you plan to start your gardening and farming journey, you need to know how farming can be done successfully in the challenging climate of Singapore and Asia. If you are one of those nature-loving people and would like to do some urban farming in Singapore, you should attend for our urban farming courses.

Horticulture in Singapore is not an easy task as you require in-depth knowledge about the right kind of crops that can be grown based on watering, soil and other climate conditions. For home growers, proper techniques should also be used to grow crops in small indoor spaces our houses, flats or apartments. Vertical farming in Singapore is also gaining trend in the farming community. This technique of farming can be easily done with the help of creating layers in a small area in which the plants and crops can be grown successfully. When you get enrolled in the our urban farming course, you will obtain knowledge and practical skills to grow from seed to harvest your wonderful crops.
