Urban Hijau – offering a lush green in the middle of KL
Urban Hijau offers an event space like no other. We are a one-acre urban farm site located in the middle of Kuala Lumpur, offering a lush green scene with a terrific vista of Taman Tun. With a fully-equipped training room and a variety of features including an aquaponics system, a composting station and rainwater harvesting setup, we guarantee a memorable hands-on experience of reconnecting with Nature. Urban Hijau follows the idea of organic farming in a big City.
Children Farm Activities
We strongly believe that lessons on sustainability and the environment should begin at a young age. Urban Hijau has hosted hundreds of children of all age groups and engaged with dozens of schools and institutions to get students to interact with a farm environment. Our signature program is the Children Farm Tour, a half-day event at the site for youngsters. It begins with a tour of our site and explanation of how a farm works, what is soil and introduction to different plants. This is followed by a fun soil mixing exercise, in which kids get to experience how soil, sand and compost blend with each other, and create their own soil mix. Children then plant their own herb sapling to take back home with them. Urban Hijau also conducts specialty children events with more advanced programs, including the Kids Solar Workshop, teaching the basics of solar energy and letting kids develop their own solar devices, and the Plant Art Workshop, where kids are taught how to paint using natural plant material from the farm.
If your company is looking for a unique space to get your team together for a day out, why settle for an indoor office or overseas location when you can have a living and breathing green space nearby? Urban Hijau has been happy to host team events with major companies such as Maxis and CIMB as well as smaller private groups, giving participants a collective experience of bonding in Nature.
Urban Hijau’s Teambuilding Day is a special event in which participants are involved in a mix of activities to keep them on their toes, from an indoor gardening primer to soil-mixing exercises to name-the-plant competitions.
Urban Hijau also conducts Guided Group Activities in which your group receives an informational farm tour before being involved in a joint morning exercise, from compost preparation & mixing to seeding, planting & harvesting new crops.
Book our Space
If you are planning an event for a special occasion, you can pick our space to make it much more memorable. Our one-acre site is a slice of green beauty in an urban concrete jungle. Our spot is open to a variety of events, from Birthday Parties to Photo shoots to Private Workshops.

Urban Hijau is an Urban Organic Farm in the City. It is more than a park or garden. They are the living and breathing example of organic sustainable farming, right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. Urban Hijau is a planned sustainable social enterprise, using permaculture as a means to unite people, generate profit and preserve the planet simultaneously.
Recently, with the help of volunteers, a list of the various species of plants and trees were documented and more than 120 plants were listed, however there are many more, and counting.
