To London. And to a place I have been looking forward to visiting. Farm:Shop is not any old café, it is an aquaponics café, where leaves and vegetables selected from the aquaponics system are used to make a variety of delicious soups, salads and sandwiches, as well as educating people on this essential method of food production.
My lunch is a salad thrown together by lettuce and herbs the manager has walked around collecting in a bowl and is every bit as fresh as it is delicious.
Farm:Shop was once a derelict space, but is now ‘literally a farm in a shop.’ It’s a great example of how small areas can produce enough food to sustain a business (14 square metres indoor and 12 square meters outdoor space). Inspiring stuff.
