Bringing farming into the city
FARM: dream of a city full of farms - growing just-picked fresh, fair and sustainable food in the heart of the city.
Step-by-step we're making this happen - starting with FARM:shop Dalston our award winning "farm in a shop" - and now moving onto London's rooftops, basements and empty plots.
The fresh city food we grow and sell has led us to be named as one of Londons Top 100 Shops and featured widely in the international press.
