We believe that our gardens can make a real difference to how people in Singapore feel connected to nature and other people in their communities. The below testimony from one of our co-founders tries to describe the purpose of the Edible Garden City enterprise:
"…in a city like Singapore…I think every human being has a desire to connect with food. Because we eat three meals a day and yet not knowing how to farm or where our food comes from...[this] is destroying our souls. Some people can just block it off, but I think a big part of people living in the city is…to know how to plant a seed…and the see the plant grow…"
