"We are hopeful that this space can be the future of urban farming. It’s a rooftop carpark. Nobody tends to park here because of the sun. So using it for growing food will allow us to engage the community and do a lot more with the space… and the food can be eaten in the nearby restaurants and by residents. This is a project that will hopefully build the largest urban farm in the world if it’s successful. Well OK - if not we’ll settle for the biggest in Asia.
We mostly fund ourselves by building edible gardens for restaurants. Over the past two years we’ve built a lot of gardens in the city but we’re still learning about the urban setting - every garden has a different micro environment. For instance here we have a resident pigeon population and they keep eating our plants! We are THAT close to shooting them and eating them.
It would be nice! You would get organically fed pigeon because they’re eating our organic vegetables! “
