Vertical Farming in Singapore
Vertical Farming in Singapore features in Issue Two of Ethos Paper, a publication for ethical entrepreneurs, responsible business, community and sustainability. Operated as a social enterprise ComCrop’s 6000 sq ft vertical rooftop farm in downtown Orchard Street was the first commercial rooftop farm in Singapore. Crops are planted in rows on pipes stacked on top of one another and water is drawn from tanks filled with living tilapia fishes, mimicking a freshwater lake eco-system where by-products from fishes are broken down and absorbed as nutrients by the plants. Vertical Farming in Singapore has enabled engineers at ComCrop allows to grow eight to ten times the amount of crops compared to conventional flat land, soil-based farming.
