“My dream is to open a cafe and grow some greens in there. That’s why I chose to do my internship here. I want to learn about farming without soil, and watch the whole process from seed to harvest.
I major in Crop Production, Bachelor of Agriculture Science. My senior told me about Cultiveat because she interned here before me. We like working here because it’s cool and clean; we don’t have to get dirty like we would in the estate.
Typically girls look for jobs in greenhouse farms while boys are more willing to work in estates.
“It’s very interesting work because you’re dealing with life here – plants are living things.”
Emi, Farm Intern
But not many young people want to get into agriculture because they rather work in the office.”
My favourite veggie: stir fried Choy Sam.
