What We Do
As a social enterprise, we rejuvenate urban spaces and develop educational programs, bringing together socially-minded individuals and businesses to create communities that inform, educate and support action on social and environmental issues.
Because empowering people with knowledge today, will help us to make better choices tomorrow.
Founded in 2019, City Sprouts @ Henderson is our first redevelopment project that transformed part of the former Henderson Secondary School into an urban farming redevelopment. Allocated between a nursing home and childcare center, we are committed to help bridge multi-generational relationships.
Vision & Mission
In rejuvenating new urban spaces, we believe in the ground up spirit in making Singapore more sustainable and food independent. Driven by the Green Plan and 30 by 30, we are committed to redevelop multiple urban spaces with community-driven programs that help nurture a community of burgeoning green businesses and socially-minded individuals who are interested in food, agriculture and sustainability.
While our island city is ever progressing and evolving, what is out of sight often becomes out of mind. Which is why we are on a mission to breathe new life to spaces and communities.
We are passionate about breaking down the silos in which urban dwellers live in, bridging social gaps and connecting people in an urban environment. Our initiatives aim to foster deeper understanding of and appreciation for the communities around us.
