Proposed use of land

Urban Grow will be home to both communal and commercial farming opportunities. It will seek to provide an atmosphere of holistic renewal to its farmers.


The property has been mapped out to include 16 plots of land for commercial farming. Each lot is sized at around 5000 sq ft. The property also includes 5400 sq ft of land to be used as a communal farming and gardening area. The property will be home to a 2000 sq ft Greenhouse and a 2000 sq ft area sized for Aquaponics.


The property will accommodate a Plantation Styled House. The ground floor will act as a storage area for agricultural supplies. It will also be utilized as a packing shed for produce.


The first floor will consist of administrative spaces, classroom style training room and a relaxing recreational area fit for its participants. Additionally a commercial grade kitchen will be housed on site along with a communal dining area for our farmers.

Harvest

In 2020, we would like to build a farmhouse.

We hope to synergise two of our existing programs namely:- Urban Grow and

Joy Home Makers to develop:-

1. A Farm to Table Food Programme (experimenting and creating

signature dishes, and specialty menus from locally grown produce)

2. A School Feeding Programme

3. A Farm Based Village Tourism Project

HARVEST will ensure that the all produce harvested from our farms will be

sold or utilised
