ABOUT THE COMPETITION
Since the launch of 3by30 to reduce food dependency on imports, we’ve seen many farming innovations implemented that addresses land scarcity and turn to technology to increase production. In pursuit of farming yield and economic returns, we often forget about the social aspect of community inclusion and pushing for the social impact we can do. The Kampong Farm Competition by City Sprouts aims to challenge the public to rethink about our Kampong Spirit in today’s urban context, seek new ideation of Urban Farm concepts that have a strong focus on community inclusion, or even better, address social issues such as mental health.
This competition is beyond planning & designing of an urban farm, it should include creative ways of how community interacts with the urban farm, which in turn bring positive impact (including intangible benefits) back to community.
