a project by:
Urban Farm

The idea is to convert a negative space into one that creates benefit for the community

Urban Farm has secured workshops & 400sqm's of rooftop space in Dublin city centre where we are researching and demonstrating intensive urban growing techniques. We have begun building facilities to host events & community groups and provide hands-on workshops that teach responsible food production, carpentry, energy-saving systems, ecological cycles, and community self-sufficiency observing organic & pesticide free practices. We go beyond the normal timber yards and builders suppliers, all materials used are salvaged from waste, diverted from landfill, de-constructed & up-cycled on site.We compost on the rooftop with the help of City Composting Ltd, a new start-up company helping to lower the volume of city waste.

This is an Open Space

After securing our space we are now in need of Funds to build out the infrastructure that will allow us to research & demonstrate intensive urban growing techniques.

All we need is materials, a lot of materials , we up-cycle & re-cycle & cycle our bikes everywhere, we are generally building this farm with up-cycled materials but we still need to purchase supplies, nails, seeds, soil, pumps, timbers, trees, tools, bees, quail, fish, paint, teabags, more nails, more tools, the man with the van needs paying too and more hens and of course we can't make everything so we will out-source materials and parts from time to time, but only when we can't beg, borrow or find them ourselves

Your support will help towards these costs :

Organic seed, fruit trees & berry bushes
Workshop tools to build and train
Soil and potting mixes
Construction of grow boxes + cold frames
Construction of vertical grow walls
Basic gardening tools
Fencing wind protection
Aquaponic system for fresh fish & micro greens
Bees, hives & equipment
Quail coop construction & equipment
Growing, harvesting & distribution of C.S.A. produce
Research, design & developing best practices
Outdoor space for residents, volunteers, community
Creating a bio-diversity space in the city centre
Composting waste from city cafes to grow food back for the community
