The Biospheric Project: Using Unlikely Spaces

The Biospheric Project: Using Unlikely Spaces

The Biospheric Project, based in the UK, is all about pushing the boundaries of what is possible when it comes to hyperlocal food production. Based in an abandoned industrial building in Salford, the project emphasizes using the space you have to execute innovative urban farming ideas. The three story building utilizes a variety of techniques including a forest garden, vermiculture, roof gardening, aquaponics and a bio-facade system to provide hyperlocally produced food to the local community. In addition to providing the region with high-quality fruits, vegetables, eggs, and honey, the project is also committed to educating the community about the future of urban farming by offering regular adult and children's classes.
