My team (Alex, Lauren, Matthew and I) decided to work on the idea of Urban Farms possibly in relation to Self-Sufficiency particularly in Singapore’s landscape. Most prominent would be the issue of space and other challenges as well as solutions. We might be juxtaposing this with farmers in Malaysia. Another angle that we might also be exploring is Read more →
