Farmyard

About The Project :

 

Our goal is to start growing our own fruit, herbs, flowers and veg and we hope that in 2 years we’ll be able to set up our own food & drinks unit in Eatyard, selling only the good ol produce we have harvested ourselves

We’ve picked a couple of areas below that we are starting to grow produce in, we are lucky that we have a roof to use to grow. But we’ve also found loads of other nooks and crannys to use both indoors & outdoors. Check out the pics below.

Using principles from permaculture and zero waste, we’ll harvest and reuse compost & water. We aim to reduce our waste immensely and grow hops for brewing, and even reuse materials for building stuff. The main goal though is to establish our own food unit (as mentioned above) and sell all the goods that we’ve made ourselves. Hopefully we can get the local community involved too! We plan to run monthly events in our spaces and bring in our favourite gardeners, farmers and collectives to share some advice and spread inspiration amongst the communities. If you would like to get involved, get in touch with us below

While we’ve dabbled in this area for almost 4-5 years now, it’s only recent that we started to take it more seriously. But hey, we’re still only practicing and learning loads along the way. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress
