We launched the Farm Proper to make the most of an unused industrial lot and start a dialogue about re-imagining the way we grow food. After coverage from Fox5 and DesignBoom, a conversation did start indeed (see here and some lively comments on this post).
A response to our critics:
- We do not endorse stealing shopping carts.
- We encourage and celebrate creative and resourceful ways of growing food in urban environments (such as making use of broken shopping carts or wooden produce crates that have been thrown out)
- We question the logic of an industrialized food system, and our use of shopping carts as planters is a symbolic way for us to encourage this discussion
Thanks for stopping by. We invite you to join us at the Farm Proper anytime!
