Our cities are facing an unprecedented resilience crisis, with our heavy dependence on a global industrialised food system that relies on an unsustainable linear production to disposal model. The global pandemic has further exposed our vulnerabilities, alongside the breakdown of global and national food supply chains. With 70% of the world’s population (6 billion) projected to live in cities by 2045, there is a strong and urgent case for cities to strategise and redesign the way forward.
Farm the City is a movement that brings together practitioners and stakeholders to explore how urban farming can be the catalyst towards greater climate and urban resilience. Through integrating ecology, urban agriculture and the built environment into a regenerative urban ecosystem, we aim to collaboratively imagine and design the blueprint of our future green cities – powered by local, circular food production models.
