At FARM:shop exhibitions change with the seasons and nature takes it's course. We are currently growing food in the following ways -
- 'Aquaponic' micro fish farming
- High tech Indoor allotment
- Rooftop chicken coop
Things change fast as food is 'planted' and harvested throughout the year. To see us grow make sure you come by at different times of the year.
20 Dalston Lane, Hackney, London. Just short walk or a slow tractor journey from the newly opened Dalston Junction Overground Station and Dalston Kingsland.
FARM:shop is open every Monday to Sunday from 11am-5pm.
If travelling from a far please email in advance just in case to avoid disappointment.
See FARM:shop's growing list of project partners below. We are currently seeking a main 'headline' sponsor and programme partners.
"FARM:shop will bring an emerging kind of art to a wider public. Art that is interested in cycles, natural materials, growth and roots rather than 'original' creations that hang disconnected, in time and space."

"If we are going to create a world free from fossil fuels, then we'll need to imagine it first. Bold and amusing statements backed up by real practical ideas like FARM:shop, show how powerful creativity can be."
Amelia Gregory of Amelia's magazine
"For every real picture we have of urban food production, there are a dozen computer mock-ups. The case for cities that are intimately connected with the source of their food has been made. The problem is that not enough people are turning it into a reality...yet."
