ARCHICRAFT Workshops 2017 | Edible Gardens | 14 Oct
WHAT IS EDIBLE GARDENS?
With the growing population in Singapore, our environment is increasingly urbanised; hence there is an ever-pressing need for more sustainable breathing spaces amongst our built environment.
The workshop will introduce participants to the concept of Urban Farming; its technical aspects and its integration with architecture. Participants will learn to reimagine leftover spaces in their homes, offices and search for opportunities to grow their very own ‘mini farms’ in these environments.
Cynthea Lam (Founder of Super Farmers)
Super Farmers is a Singapore-grown company established since 2015.
Super Farmers started out as an urban farming company, teaching Singaporeans to grow their own food and helping them install edible gardens in their urban homes. It was born out of sheer necessity. Super Farmers believes that through the process of farming, they can help people find happiness by guiding people to plant seeds of intention, find their purpose in life, and to live it with a constant harvest of joy and balance.

What is ARCHICRAFT?
The inaugural Archicraft in Archifest 2017 is a series of curated workshops, organized in carefully curated architectural space or buildings, that provides the opportunity for participants to delve into a variety of disciplines in society and their interaction with architecture. These series of workshops are aimed at empowering participants to adopt an active role in becoming 'agents for change' in our living environment.
There is a total of 8 workshops to choose from; from learning how 3D printing has impacted the practice of architecture to learning how to compose a thought-provoking architectural photograph or even to growing your very own personal ‘farm’.
