GROWING ROOTS

2100 on 30 July (2000 BKK/JKT, 2200 MNL, 2300 KUL)

This documentary showcases the people behind the urban farms that have been mushrooming amidst the glass and steel towers of Singapore’s concrete jungle. It follows the trials and tribulations of Comcrop’s Allan Lim and his vertical farming venture, as well as the challenges and triumphs of Edible Garden City's Bjorn Low as he works to spread the seeds of farming knowledge. Can cutting-edge agricultural technology and an enduring Singapore spirit of community and collaboration start to influence Singaporeans’ approach to food sustainability? GROWING ROOTS captures this changing mindscape.
