Our children, in particular, have been too segregated from nature. OFC is an ideological and physical reaction to this.

Their layered experiences will also strengthen inter-generational relationships through quality time spent together.”
Open Farm Community (OFC) is Singapore’s pioneering urban farm and restaurant concept; a timely reaction to the increasing disconnect between people and their food.
