Darren Ho

Agriculture Head

Darren has worked in and managed farms in Australia and South East Asia and would like to continue to do so all around the world, understanding different practices, climates and cultures. This helps him shape his farming philosophy and allows him to cross-pollinate ideas with different farmers and businesses


In his current role as the Director of Kodja, he aims to transform the agriculture sector into a more decentralised model, especially in developing cities. He believes that urban agriculture and food & farm clusters are the solutions to the growing demands of mega cities and more efforts have to be channelled in that direction to make it liveable.


Additionally, his goal is to increase the livelihoods of small holder farmers in South East Asia by adopting the best practices around to help increase the quality and quantity of the food grown in the region


Darren is equally passionate about driving the industry forward and in his role as the Project Lead for the Singapore Young Farmers, he organises symposiums to attract younger generations into the agriculture industry. He hopes that one day Singapore becomes a more food resilient country and is recognised as the regional knowledge hub for agriculture.
