Pop Farm is an urban farm, growing decorative plants and fresh herbs, vegetables and other ingredients for use by local people, food businesses and Pop Brixton’s community of caterers.
Cuttings, seeds and bulbs will be distributed to local households for free, hopefully inspiring further gardening at home, and the space will become a lush outdoor green space for members of the public to visit, and spend time in.
Pop Farm also offers education and training through workshops exploring gardening, food growing, nutrition and horticulture.
This includes formal education programmes in horticulture, developing employability skills and personal development. Pop Farm also runs free workshops with local primary and secondary schools and offers free weekend workshops for the public to take part in.
Further practical workshops are offered in nutrition and how to use the fresh ingredients to improve wellbeing. The outcome of workshops are connected with the community and helping personal growth.
Pop Farm is a collaborative project between Pop Brixton and Urban Growth Learning Gardens.
