On the Red Dot embarks on a new series, Unique Communities, where we visit four communities in Singapore that choose to lead lives off the beaten path. The way they live, work and play may be very different from the regular Singaporean. But what makes these living arrangements work? This week, we take a look at local farmers from various trades and the camaraderie that binds them all together. During the 1960s, there were about 20,000 farms, taking up a quarter of Singapore’s land area. Now, the number has dwindled to 250, just 1% of our land. Yet, amongst these farms, you can discover an $8.3 million pasteurisation system that keeps our eggs safe to eat, a 36 metre long ‘dragon’ breathing life into pottery and a collection of farmers rallying together amidst times of uncertainty. Catch it all in our series, Unique Communities. On The Red Dot, Friday @ 9.30pm on Channel 5.
