The Singaporean government has started renting out rooftop farms in 2020 to increase the country’s food production. At least a dozen of these rooftop farms have now appeared throughout the city state in Southeast Asia. According to a Singapore Food Agency (SFA) spokesperson, Singapore has limited food resources. This is why it is important for the government to secure food. Urban farmer Eyleen Goh manages a farm from a parking garage‘s upper deck. Goh says that the amount they harvest each day can range from 100 kg to 200 kg to 400 kg. However, because Singaporean real estate is among the most expensive in the world, rooftop farmers are also looking for other ways to earn an income. One farmer says that he has found financial success by charging visitors a monthly fee to pick vegetables at his urban farm. Local families enjoy the concept, according to him, because “it is a community kind of approach.”
