Thema: Ireland’s first rooftop farm – growing life back into the city.
Beschreibung: The idea is to convert a negative space into one that creates a tangible benefit for the community. Urban Farm will be growing food on a Dublin city center rooftop with indoor aquaponic allotments for all season growing. Urban Farm secured Workshops Rooftop space at The Chocolate Factory, a new creative community developing in an old factory in the heart of Dublin city centre, where we are researching and demonstrating intensive urban growing techniques, but we will not just be growing food, keeping fowl and bees. We have begun building facilities to host events, community groups and provide hands-on workshops that teach responsible food production, carpentry, energy-saving systems, ecological cycles, and community self-sufficiency observing organic, pesticide free practices. We compost on the rooftop thus helping to lower the volume of waste produced, and encouraging the reduction of the city’s carbon footprint. Our rooftop farm offers the necessary space for students and teachers to practice their skills while maintaining the garden at the same time. Through cultivating a network of urban farmers, we hope to catalyse social changes that will improve the livelihood and liveability of our city spaces.
Ort: Dublin, Ireland
