The Farm Proper



Established: January 2010

Location: THE BAKERY, Barrio Logan,
San Diego, California

The Farm Proper is a mobile, urban farm under development in the lot behind THE BAKERY, the Set & Drift and mi-workshop collaborative studio space in Barrio Logan.

The Farm Proper is an experimental project created by a collaborative of artists, designers, and backyard growers to inspire urban cultivation and pocket farms. Using abandoned/defunct shopping carts as our medium, we have designed a scenario to take over a temporarily available industrial lot to provide the community with organically grown food.

We have *some* experience with growing hence the experimental nature of this project. This photo set documents our findings and failures, and we welcome your suggestions…

Some of our chosen farm resources in the community:
Suzie’s Farm
Cafe Moto

Some recent coverage: Fast Company and designboom of Milan, Italy
