Tampines residents will soon be able to grow their own organic vegetables for personal consumption in a cleaner, more efficient way.
Rather than the traditional method of planting in soil, Our Tampines Hub is offering residents vertical hydroponics kits that can be used to grow veggies at home, it announced on Saturday (Nov 21).
The kits - about 1m wide and just under 2m high - can accommodate about 20 plants. A pilot project will give about 50 kits free to residents whose homes are suitable, such as having enough sunlight.
The scheme is part of an initiative called Our Green Hut, which also involves starting a vertical hydroponic farm to produce more than 15 types of vegetables.
