a pop up urban farming experiment to prototype the future of food and the transition to low carbon city living
we grow food in containers, on rooftops and underground. This unlocks unused city spaces to support local residents to grow their own food.
FarmLab is an experiment and needs your creativity and help to shape the future of food. We are on the lookout for places to pop up, run events and share ideas
Great to motivate and give power to citizens - a great concept
Urban agriculture provides a complementary strategy to reduce urban poverty and food insecurity and enhance urban environmental management
By growing what we need near where we live, we decrease the "food miles" associated with long-distance transportation. We also get the freshest produce money can buy, and we are encouraged to eat in season
