Urban farming is growing or producing food in a city or heavily populated town or municipality.

Learning About Rice Farming From Scratch to Harvest!
Rice is a staple food for the majority of Indonesians and it holds an important place in Indonesian culture. We seek to foster the appreciation for food as kids learn about the process, effort and care put into rice farming to bring rice from the farm to the plate.
Know How to Maintain Plant Growth
Having children learn about plant growth is very beneficial to their educational and skill growth. Not only is it a fun activity, but it enhances their responsibility, self-confidence, love for nature, and many more. This program also gives an opportunity for kids to learn more about science and get hands-on experience in applying what they have learned.
An Introduction to Hydroponics and Aquaponics
Traditional agriculture is scrutinized due to the adverse effects it has on the environment – depletion of natural resources, contamination of water sources, misuse of synthetic chemical inputs, and many more. Therefore, soilless production systems like hydroponics and aquaponics have become innovative methods of agriculture that provide growers with the benefits of growing plants while minimizing its detrimental environmental effects. Inagro values teaching children about these innovative methods that do not harm the environment so come and join us to learn more about them!
A Gained Interest in Agriculture
Agriculture is often not taught to children in classrooms which is more of a reason to come to Inagro to experience our Urban Farming program! Here in Inagro, agriculture and food production is what we strive to teach. With our Urban Farming program, we seek to teach children about the role of agriculture has in providing the food they have on their tables. Agriculture is also a huge contributor to Indonesia’s economy as our country’s lands are an array of vast and abundant fertile soils.
