Farm Urban Community Edible Walls Programme

In 2021 Make partnered with Farm Urban after winning grant funding from the Liverpool City Region Community Environment Fund to build an edible wall in the new cafe at Make Hamilton. 

The wall formed part of a six week education programme, open to unemployed people living in Birkenhead, about hydroponic growing and enterprise skills. Over the six weeks participants built on their skills while growing their own food and experimenting with the use of hydroponics. This came with the opportunity to learn about global food systems and making healthier and more sustainable food choices. 

Before the 6 week course took place we ran a series of events, aimed at stakeholders and potential participants, for them to get a flavour of the project before signing up, as well as giving away free boxes of greens every Friday for several weeks leading up to the course start. 

Quote: “The thing that I enjoyed the most was gaining knowledge that I feel is relevant to todays society in producing sustainable food for the future and helping to minimise waste, packaging and transport costs.”
