Singapore Bird Paradise! Theme Park Farming

 

 

In the beginning we farmed in homes. Then we farmed in offices. Then hotels and restaurants. Schools followed. Social clubs, community centers, conference centers. Now we are theme park farmers! If you haven’t had the chance to check out Singapore’s new Bird Paradise theme park at Mandai, then please do drop by and see our installation at their fine-dining Crimson restaurant. You can admire the pink flamingos whilst feasting your eyes on a large Grobrix wall.

 

 

 

 

High School Farming

 

 

We are excited to welcome to the Grobrix farming movement Naval Base Secondary and Chung Cheng High School. It’s great to be building out our education offering in Singapore’s heartlands as we strive to encourage, enthuse, empower and educate the younger generations to live more sustainable, self sufficient lives. We firmly believe that change emerges from small creative acts taken by many. It’s often the small actions and the unassuming beginnings that are important and this is why working with schools is so important to us at Grobrix.

 

 

 

 

Co-Living Farming at Capitaland Lyf

 

 

The Co-living concept is an interesting one. A modern form of communal living in which residents get a private bedroom in a furnished home with shared common areas. It’s becoming more popular in major cities as a means of affordable living for students, workers, digital nomads, or individuals relocating. And what a great place for Urban Farming initiatives! Residents share a kitchen and a swimming pool. Why not share and contribute together as a community to an edible garden?! This is our first installation in collaboration with Capitaland and we hope it will be the first of many!

 

 

 

 

Living Dot Super Salad Bundle Subscription – A Comcrop Collaboration

 

 

At Grobrix, our mission remains an unwavering commitment to encourage, enthuse, empower and educate urban communities to grow some of their own food and live more sustainable, self-sufficient, happier and healthier lives. Our growing team of passionate urban farmers are now growing thousands of crops all over Singapore and Kuala Lumpur in offices, schools, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, community centers, homes and even theme parks!

 

 

As we engage the community, we always like to stress the importance of food security in Singapore and we understand that self-sufficiency can be achieved not only by taking an active interest in growing ourselves but ALSO by supporting local commercial farms that work tirelessly to stock the supermarket shelves and feed the masses. That’s why we are now pumped to be partnering with Comcrop to promote and help distribute their newly launched Living Dot Super Salad Bundle Subscription.

 

 

If you are part of the Grobrix movement already but want to ensure that all of your employees, students or community members are getting their regular dose of locally grown, super fresh greens, this is a great opportunity to:

 

 

  • bypass the supermarkets to save money
  • escape the use of single use plastic wrappers
  • get fresher same day harvested greens

 

If you are interested to find out more, please reach out to team Grobrix. We’ll help bring the produce from Singapore’s most sustainable commercial farm right to your doorstep.

 

 

Ready to join the Grobrix movement? We’d love to hear from you! Please reach out here.
