Lokal Roots is a youth‐led urban farm based in Brunei which aspires to be one of the leading urban farming hubs in the country. Through its pilot project, Lokal Roots aims to use sustainable farming to grow natural, high quality fruits and vegetables to cater the needs of local eateries and markets.
