We're changing the world, in a big way. 

All in good thyme.

FARMCITY

ESPECIALLY PREPARED FOR

INTRODUCTION

Farmcity is a learning farm. We use agriculture to nourish brains and bellies. We are  proud to be a social enterprise founded on an unwavering commitment to keep nutritious vegetables accessible to everybody. All our crops are cultivated naturally, without any toxic agrichemicals. We grow them under the TropicBird - our proprietary greenhouse built for the tropics. Named after the Paille-en-queue, the TropicBird is a new type of sheltered farming designed for the tropical climate. Passive ventilation systems channels heat effectively, greatly reduces the penetration of insects and pests, and a central gutter channels rainwater away from crops and into storage systems for future use.

OUR VISION IN ACTION

FARMCITY MARKETS

Farmcity's markets are located in the heart of each community. This allows us to sell our naturally grown produce direct to the local community, which minimizes the distance our vegetables travel and maximizes the nutritional quality that is in each bite. Farmcity markets can be located at the farm itself, or in other places in partnership with local businesses, schools and offices. We currently sell at Total Station (Belle Vue), every Friday from 3-5:30pm.

EDUCATIONAL TOURS

Our educational programs introduce children and youths to innovative and sustainable agriculture through experimentation, observation, storytelling and adventurous play. Participants explore concepts such as biodiversity, conservation, social & environmental impact and food systems. Program application involves natural sciences, maths, basic economics, art and entrepreneurship. Regardless of age and knowledge base, there’s something for everyone to learn. Our long-term vision is that our participants will either become more interested in sustainable agriculture as a career path, or that they will at least leave with a greater awareness of the role they play in global and local food systems.

CORPORATE TOURS

Our corporate visit program is a learning tour where participants will visit a modern farm that was founded on and built around the principle of sustainability. It begins with an introduction to Farmcity and our organic farming model, how we grow organic vegetables in a manner that works with nature instead of against it, as well as the different ways we weave sustainability into our daily operations. Participants will also enjoy a hands-on workshop on growing their own vegetables. Tours can be customised according to the learning objectives of each company.

FARM TO TABLE EXPERIENCE

The tour begins with an introduction to modern ways of organic farming both indoors and outdoors. Participants are then given specific ingredients to be harvested alongside the Chef. The Chef then leads participants on an immersive cooking experience that  explores the culinary traditions of local Mauritian cuisine. This cooking experience using organically grown veggies is unique in Mauritius.
