Event description
The NZILA Auckland Branch invite you to Carl Pickens presentation on Urban Agriculture (Winston Churchill Fellowship).

About this Event

His intention was to explore how urban agriculture is contributing to community resilience (economic, social, environmental) and food security in central and Western Europe - places where urban agriculture has been enjoying something of a renaissance in recent years. Also to explore how these projects relate to a New Zealand context and what lessons might be applied here.

Projects visited included a visionary rooftop farm in Antwerps Green Quarter; a CSA 20 minutes by bike from central Amsterdam; an edible town in northern England; a project enabled by the Parisculteurs municipal growing initiative; and a farm in coastal Oslo where the community has built a building in the form of a viking ship (they bake bread there).
