About the event

Life can be hectic at Science Park, so how about slowing down with some relaxing gardening? The good news is that it’s really easy to do. Join the SPARK Organic Farm and learn how you can become an urban farmer.

The SPARK Organic Farm programme runs for four months. It is both theoretical and hands on. The best part is you get to enjoy the calming fun of gardening and your own harvest of organic vegetables. Experienced coaches will show you how to do it, and then you can jump in and roll up your sleeves for sowing, digging, watering and harvesting. The sense of achievement is tremendous. Gather your team now and have fun together. 

What is organic farming?
Organic farming is a type of farming that cares about nature and strives to maintain ecological balance. Synthetic substances are avoided and resources are minimised. It is about harmony with nature and protecting our ecosystems.
