Loosely translated from Malay to English as ‘rice salad,’ Nasi Ulam features a number of fresh local herbs and flowers which are not widely available in stores today. As a result, this traditional Peranakan dish is no longer common in the market place and not many people are aware of it.
At The Farmers, our Nasi Ulam is made from vegetables harvested from our garden and foraged locally. Our recipe, handed down through generations, is packed with flavour and nutrition.
What better way to inspire social change than to start with our young?
The objective of this project is to help schools build and install interactive growing gardens within their grounds that function as green spaces as well as outdoor classrooms. The opportunity for children to grow food brings the curriculum to life, encourages learning through play, instills a sense of wonder for nature, and nurtures environmental stewardship in them.
Our goal is to bring our farm into the city center by 2022. Through urban farming and related activities, The Farmers hopes to promote our cultural heritage, sustainability, and the empowerment of women.
We want to connect more people to the idea of localization and be at the forefront of the local food movement by demonstrating urban farming on a day-to-day basis. By bridging the disconnect between where our food is grown and where it is consumed, we hope to create more awareness and interest in our food system, as well as champion the farm-to-table concept by providing high-quality, locally-grown produce for restaurants in the city.
