This film shows our urban/slum concept model which showcases how to grow food in a urban/slum setting using many of the principles of sustainable farming we currently teach to smallholder farmers.

The project has a typical urban dwelling of 3 m2 with a 5 m2 garden plot and demonstrates over 30 different ways to grow food and earn a living. It incorporates fish farming, poultry, using tyres as raised beds, growing fruit, vegetables and medicinal plants in sacks, composting, water purification, rainwater harvesting, cooling systems and the use of biogas and solar energy.
