Farmcity is a social enterprise with a mission to teach, accompany and empower communities to grow their own food.
A husband and wife team, Wesley and Kelly Oxenham describe themselves as being first corporate idealists, then activists — and now farmers.
When Wesley fell ill while on an extended holiday in Mauritius in 2016, they went looking for healthier food but encountered challenges that took them on a road of discovery. They realised that our food system is inefficient, not just in Mauritius or Singapore, but globally. The reliance on industrialised agriculture means unsustainable food production that lacks nutrition and destroys the environment. And they decided to do something about it.
Amongst many initiatives, including a proprietary greenhouse, The TropicBird, specifically for Mauritius’ tropical climate, here in Singapore - they have spoken to many Singaporeans and have designed the Mighty Growers Living games to help urban folks grow their own food right in their HDBs.
