NFT Design

While you can buy hydroponics systems off the market, it usually costs more, and not all hydroponics systems sold in the market are designed by experts in hydroponics.

Poorly design systems often show signs of poor flow, poor root growth, inappropriate crops etc.

We believe in empowering our students with the science principles of good hydroponics systems design and practical learning skills.

The above is one of the systems that we design that shows a very healthy crop growth, come and join us in our Intermediate Hydroponics Course to apply the right science-based principles to design your own hydroponics system


Besides training urban farmers and gardeners, we spent most of our time doing research.

Singaporeans are used to seeing yellow corn, and bi-colour white-yellow corn in the market.

Do you know that there are alot of heirloom varieties of corn which are besides yellow and white, totally natural and not GMO!

It takes knowledge and skills to grow corns successfully in Singapore climate. We are glad to show you what we have now!

At The Living Centre, we spent alot of our time conducting trials of varieties of high value crops to grow in Singapore.
This is one of our on-going observation of a special variety of melon. We have been growing melons for a long time, but we always wanted to try new varieties that have better traits.
Many growers in Singapore faced problems with low yield and weak plants, which is often a result of inadequate plant nutrition and poor soil conditions. Weak plants often result in flowers aborting off the plants.

In the video below, we show our healthy melon plant with successful pollination at about slightly over a week old, with harvest estimated in about 3 weeks time.

Ladybugs are great insects in the organic farm. They play a major role in balancing the eco system in your garden.

Sad to say, farms that does not actively apply organic farming principles made use of chemical pesticides, which could kill these ladybugs.

In our research garden, we do not use any chemical pesticides, and we create a balance eco system, which allow ladybugs to come and feed on other harmful pest such as aphids.


As part of The Living Centre's research and development efforts, we have tested a number of bush beans seeds in our challenging Singapore weather.

One of our favourites are Lima Bush Beans (Henderson). An heirloom variety, tasty and suitable for our warm weather Singapore.
