The Urban Farming Guru
For converting dead city spaces into urban farms
Bjorn started his career as an online marketing specialist after completing his MBA. His stint in marketing brought him to London, where during a particularly harsh winter, he realised that he wanted to be a farmer. Bjorn quit his job, and for the next three years, travelled and worked on organic farms across Europe. Having obtained a diploma in Biodynamic Agriculture in East Sussex, Bjorn returned to Singapore with the dream of combining his knowledge of farming and his business training. In 2012, Edible Gardens was born with the hopes of building urban farms to help Singapore tackle its food security challenges. His passion has been the foundation for Edible Garden City. Today it employs a team of 40 full-time staff members and is carving its niche in a new industry sector in Singapore, having built more than 200 food gardens for hotels, schools, F&B outlets, property developers and home gardens.
