Asher was first exposed to the world of agriculture through his dad who owns a durian orchard. Even so, he didn’t foresee it for his own career until he received an offer at a university to study the field.
Work for Asher at Cultiveat is filled with daily happenings of the unexpected. As part of the Projects and Technical team, he built the greenhouses, assisted in construction, and set up the growing systems. Besides that, Asher regularly performs repairs and troubleshooting around the farm.
“It’s my first time running projects, I enjoy the self-development because it makes me more organised. I have to prioritise my tasks and work according to the timeline.”
Asher, Technical & Project Executive
While it’s great training, the work is challenging, “It’s super hot and tiring because we run around a lot. But I’ve picked up many useful skills, like building. I help out where I can because I want to learn, and it will help me on the next project.”
My favourite veggie: Stir-fried choy sam.
