Ecotopia - SMU Grow

Weird&WonderfulEdibles is a business that specializes in exotic edibles and the breeding of pollinators for all gardens. The shop has over 80 species of plants and focuses on locally available herbs with medicinal properties. The aim of the business is to encourage the growing of edibles that suit Singapore’s climate as well as the sharing of their history. Many herbs sold were used as folk medicines during the Japanese Invasion and remain an important (yet, often ignored and forgotten) part of Singapore’s past.

Other available edibles include those commonly used for culinary purposes. The message behind encouraging Singaporeans to grow what they eat is one of sustainability and love for the environment. In the same vein, the business only uses up-cycled pots and organically harvested soil (from compost) when selling plants.

Lastly, the business also stresses the importance of organic farming methods. This means that all plants should be pollinated by bees, butterflies, beetles and ants. Earthworms are also for sale! This encourages consumers to be one with nature and love animals around them.

From there, they slowly grew their business on the online platform, Carousell. Featuring a unique blend of light, joy and creativity, all products are created with original brush lettering, watercolor and digital illustrations.
