Edible Garden City, or EGC, is a social enterprise dedicated to creating social change through community-centric agriculture. It champions the “Grow Your Own Food” movement in Singapore, empowering home gardeners and promoting urban farming in our city. Its grounding philosophy is that growing our own food connects us with nature and cultivates a sense of community. Through edible landscaping, or foodscaping, EGC has activated more than 260 under-utilised areas in schools, homes and businesses into green community spaces. Its minimal waste and pesticide-free farming model produces fresh, tasty and nutritious microgreens, herbs, flowers and vegetables for both professional chefs and home cooks. Additionally, EGC teaches and supports fellow farmers and gardeners, hires from marginalised communities, and employs therapeutic horticulture. The social enterprise is committed to finding a sustainable solution to managing food waste and achieving greater food resilience in Singapore.
