CNM graduate student Markéta Dolejšová is documenting a growing interest in food sustainability in the region. In recent months, she co-organized a series of workshops, talks and field trips titled “Squat & Grow” that was focused on DIY food production and alternative ways of food consumption. The series drew food scientists, artists, designers, anthropologists, tinkerers and other food devotees from various cultural and professional backgrounds and was open to the public. There will be a string of initiatives in coming months. One that was just launched in mid-April was the Fermentation GutHub project.
Squat & Grow is an initiative started by NUS students Markéta Dolejšová and Cindy Lin Kaiying, and DIYbio Singapore founding member Adeline Seah. The initiative is supported by Edible Garden City Singapore and Hackerspace SG.
