First of its Kind Learning Programme. Our in-house Young Entrepreneurship Programme is a specialized programme that is tailored to help train students with no prior knowledge and experience on aquaponics farming to become proficient young farmers that know the basics of urban farming, young facilitators that know how to apply the knowledge gained to mentor others and eventually young entrepreneurs that understand the importance of Singapore food security and help to market the organic vegetables and fishes that they produce and promote urban aquaponics farming in Singapore.

 

Guided Learning and Farming Support. After gaining the aquaponics farming knowledge, the students get to try out their own farming and experience the aquaponics farming process themselves. Through real-life practical situations, they get to encounter various farming issues that occur and our facilitators will assist and guide them in solving the issues. We supply a whole range of farming supplies that can be extended to students at discounted rates. The students will be protected from black merchants that wishes to exploit them as they have no business experience.

Pioneer In The Aquaponics Industry. Metro Farm Pte Ltd is the first company that has attained Aquaponics Farming License from AVA to grow vegetables and fishes within a re-circulating ecosystem. Prior to attaining the certification from AVA, we have submitted farming proposal that explains how our system works with detailed calculations on achieving the production levels of our vegetables and fishes and the certification signifies their support for our farming system.

Comprehensive & Well-Developed Programme. Our Young Entrepreneurship Programme provides comprehensive lessons, teaching aids and facilitators that aims to impart the knowledge and farming method of the OAS farming system that has been improved after many years of local research and experimentation. They will learn about the characteristics of various vegetables and fishes and important skills and knowledge about other equipment that is necessary to maintain a commercial grade aquaponics system. The students of the Young Entrepreneurship Programme will also learn smart automation and monitoring technologies that will help them better understand the health status of the farming system and enhance the productivity of the farm. They will get to visit farms that are running or using OAS solutions and learn from them.

Networking With Like-Minded Individuals. From the programme, the students get to grow, harvest and eat their own crops and fishes. They will be able to gain a deeper understanding on the entire farming process which will aid them to develop and form their own business model. Through the programme, students will also be able to widen their circle of friends and know other like-minded farming entrepreneurs through our networking sessions under the Young Entrepreneur Programme. There are numerous crops and fishes that you can grow and even more permutations that you can create other products from the crops and fishes that are grown. Our facilitators will facilitate the students to brainstorm how they can market their crops and fishes to come out unique products or come out with their own blue ocean strategy.

Growing At National Level. With the knowledge and skillset learnt from the programme, Metro Farm can assist young entrepreneurs to take up national level projects using aquaponics. Our facilitators can work with them and come out innovative ways to incorporate aquaponics urban farming as part of the natural landscape and lifestyle where individuals and families will be able to benefit from. OAS aquaponics farming systems are proven working and to date has been visited and supported by a number of MPs and government officials.

 

Future Collaborations and Partnerships. Metro Farm is currently in talks with Dr Janil, Minister of State to promote this programme. Our Young Entrepreneurship Programme and Metro Farm Entrepreneurship Programme is slated to be conducted at institutions like Polytechnics, Community Centres and Residential Corners. This programme provides a conducive and safe environment where we can nurture the future entrepreneurs of our nation. The programme aims to impart life skills, urban farming knowledge, smart automation and monitoring technologies, entrepreneurship skills, marketing skills and opportunities to projects and events where entrepreneurs can tap on.
