Meet our tour guide at Botanic Garden (Tanglin Gate) From there our experienced urban forager guide will explain how one can reconnect food with places and people. Designed for city dwellers, our urban forager and farmer guide will showcase food our grandparents used to harvest from the wild. This foraging and farm tour will take you around the Botanic Gardens and Dempsey, where you’ll be taught to identify edible plant species.
As we progress along, our guide will introduce you to two Urban farm based in Dempsey. Both farms act as the missing link to our modern fabric, they strengthen the understanding and respect for food and its origins. Showcasing local and regional produce like never before.
Inline with our wild food Safari, you will have the take away option of a cuppa or refreshing beverage from a safari-themed cafe located in the heart of a tropical garden. With a drink in hand, our group will continue to the next urban farm where you will get to taste some local edible which you might have seen earlier on the tour with refreshment. Climate change has been at the center of debates and attentions over the last few years.
At the end of the tour, you will understand that urban foraging is an under-explored facet of the alternative food movement. It is a part of the nation’s attempt in food security to achieve “30 by 30”. Food foraging adventures are a hot new travel trend, and tours are popping up in cities and forests all across the globe. Picking and eating plants growing in the wild may seem primitive to city dwellers in Singapore, but that is slowly changing, thanks to a global food trend that is catching on here.
** Note: Our guide will only share the knowledge of foraging. No plants or edibles will be plucked.
