DBS creating eco-friendly urban farm for employees

Jun 21, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
DBS Bank plans to transform a patch of its outdoor space at one of its buildings into a community farm, and give its employees a chance to try urban farming, it said this week.

Touted to be Singapore's first community farm on the premises of a bank, the DBS Food Forest will feature more than 50 varieties of edible plants and herbs that Singaporeans consume every day.

To launch the DBS Food Forest, the bank has partnered Edible Garden City, which has developed 240 food gardens over the past seven years.

The social enterprise - which specialises in urban farming - is supported by DBS Foundation.

The Covid-19 pandemic has sparked concerns over food security, while interest in urban farming has bloomed during the circuit breaker period.
