Liverpool City Council has approved plans for an urban farm project, the Baltic Farm, in the Baltic Triangle.
The Baltic Farm started operating in the Baltic area last year and now plans have been approved for a space behind The Wedding House building to become their permanent home.
The project is a joint venture of Great George Street and Farm Urban, currently based in the CIC Building, where the city’s first Vertical Hydroponic Farm is based. Discover Liverpool’s Urban Farm growing green vegetables under the streets of the Baltic Triangle.
The Baltic Farm is a creative food project rooted in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, one of the most exciting and fast-growing areas of Liverpool. Their vision is to create a socially-transformative, community-embedded urban farm and cultural events space that connects the local community, builds a local food network, fills homes with fresh local food and creates engaging and meaningful jobs.
Watch the video below as the project is perfectly summed by by Dr Paul Myers of Farm Urban.
The aims of the project are:
- Grow fresh high-quality food right in the heart of the city all year round with minimal environmental impact
- Reconnect people with real food, empowering them to make informed choices that will lead to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle
- Create a space that provides a true sense of place, where all members of the community can come and feel welcome, enjoy good food, take part in empowering workshops, watch inspiring performances and enjoy amazing events.
It will achieve its aims by creating inspiring spaces and bringing together an amazing team to deliver the project.
