Conservation of our Ecosystems through Regenerative Farming at FlowerHut Farm

FlowerHut Farm has been active since February in 2012, where most produce have been grown for personal use. However, since 2022 they have commenced commercial operation. The original intent of the farm was to grow flowers and herbs to share them with folks who are interested in plants and farming.

As one of two farmers at FlowerHut, Green learnt about regenerative farming from Homeland Green and believes that regenerative farming is a way of respecting nature. By practicing this way, she believes it provides a more systematic and holistic way of environmental conservation. She also believes it is important for everyone to learn about not just what is going on above ground but also below the ground as well. With that in mind, Covid has further inspired her to concentrate on a healthier lifestyle that she believes starts with food. After volunteering at the farm since 2019, she left her job as a social worker in 2021 to work full-time at the farm and is inspired to do education programs that promote the importance of soil health.

Although the farm faces significant challenges - much like the other farmers - she is dedicated to providing consistent high quality crops, and knows this will only come about by researching and putting this study into practice. She hopes that FlowerHut will become a community farm and that they are then able to recruit volunteers and collaborate with different organizations.
