Synopsis

Singapore occupies a small landmass with no room for farming but yet it happens to be the "garden city" of tomorrow.

Indeed, the intense urbanization called for the testing of new models of citified agriculture; in other words experimentation of vegetable gardens and farms on the rooftops of skyscrapers. With over 80% of the world population predicted to live in cities by 2050, Singapore is the early laboratory for alternative farming.

Who are the leaders of this agricultural revolution? What alternatives are they offering? How to improve productivity on constricted surfaces? That's some of the questions being raised by this eco-techno documentary about the FARMERS OF THE FUTURE.
