Malaysia: City dwellers grow veggies at home without soil

Growing your own vegetables could be fun and help you get the freshest greens to your dining table, but not everyone has the luxury of space to have their own vegetable plot at home.

However, with the hydroponic system, city dwellers could enjoy harvesting their own vegetables even with limited space.

With rising concerns over food safety and security, planting your own vegetables makes perfect sense and City Farm co-founder Jayden Koay believes that growing your own food at home will be the trend of the future for urbanites.

“The best way to keep your vegetables fresh is to keep them alive. The best is to pluck the vegetable, cook and serve it straightaway,” he tells

The two-year-old City Farm was initially established to offer fresh vegetables to the public but has evolved into a solutions provider to urbanites who want to become “city farmers”.

The outfit was formed by three electrical engineering graduates from the Malaysia Multimedia University including Koay. Growing their own food was first a hobby but quickly turned into a business. They believe that with the right knowledge and equipment, everyone can be urban farmers.
