  MFAA - Brompton Experiences 

Apart from advocating the benefits of high tech aquaponics farming in Singapore, the MFAA is also interested in addressing other issues such as health and wellbeing. To that end, we have teamed up with High Achievers to offer a unique cycling experience which brings participants on a unique journey between two different farms. Metro Farm Pasir Ris and Metro Farm Punggol (Marina Country Club) is nestled strategically at the ends of Singapore's newest and most ideal cycling routes.

Through the MFAA Brompton Experiences, participants will experience the joy of cycling and observe first hand how land is used in Singapore to promote agriculture, aquaculture and how the 2009 LUSH initiative by URA and the latest Singapore Green Plan 2030 has helped urban farming in Singapore.

< Metro Farm @ Bendemeer > 

Located at the rooftop floor of BS Bendemeer Centre, this is one of Metro Farm's 6 farms around the island. Our local aquaponics farmers work hard towards creating 30x30 Food Security Vision and Sustainability for the little red dot! Spanning a total combined area of about 60,000sqft, Metro Farm grows a variety of organic vegetables and organic fishes to meet our local food demands. 

Aquaponics Garden:

Metro Farm creates customized aquaponics garden solutions for schools and educational institutions. Our outdoor Aquaponics Garden not only beautify the surrounding environment, it also produces food that can be brought home to cook delicious meals. The Aquaponics Garden is a green sustainable system (developed by Oceansing) that make use of the waste from the fishes to fertilize the crops, while the crops absorb and purify the water to be reused by the fishes. In addition, the Aquaponics Garden uses natural sunlight to sustain the growth required for crops to grow big and healthy.

Relieve Stress:

The Aquaponics Garden is scalable and does not require much space to setup. It provides a refreshing greenery landscape to an otherwise boring concrete landscape in this urban city. The colors from the crops and flowers grown on the Aquaponics Garden help add vibrancy and liven up the moods. Together with the rhythming flow of the fishes in their crystal-clear tanks, it helps to provide a calming therapeutic effect for our stressful lifestyles, as we take a step back to appreciate and understand more about the environment.

Learning:

The Aquaponics Garden can be used as a learning platform where students build on the aquaponics knowledge and foundation that they have attained in the controlled classroom environment and apply it outdoors. They can then better appreciate and understand the effects of the natural elements such as rain and natural sunlight on the aquaponics garden. They will be able to observe the effects of heavy rain or sunlight on the growth of the plants or fishes and derive the relationship of the natural lifecycles. In addition, the Aquaponics Garden may be subjected to insects and animals of the natural environment such as fungus gnats, frogs or dragonflies that are attracted to the Aquaponics Garden.
