Another fantastic harvest this week with the team VCCP Media with lots of people getting stuck in with harvesting and plant changes - we love to see it!

It's been proven that having a break from your desk and screen help to reduce stress and fatigue and actually help you get more done. 🤓

Our harvests are also a great way of bringing people together, something we've all been missing recently 💚

Our urban farms are helping bring workplaces to life. 🌱 Allowing people to harvest their own healthy and nutritious food (that they’ve watched grow!) has great benefits for both mental and physical health. Harvest day always puts a smile on everyone's face!
But don’t just take our word for it.. as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words! 🤩

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 goals and 169 targets with the aim of achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. We’ve been thinking about how Square Mile Farms fits into these and what targets we contribute towards, check it out below. ⬇️

SDGs for 2030
🌾 Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Our farms provide ultra fresh, zero miles and sustainably grown produce to city dwellers.

🏙Goal 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Growing in the urban environment improves our resilience by shortening food supply chains.

🛒 Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. We bring food production to the front of mind, encouraging people to consider their foods’ origins and consume only what’s needed thereby reducing food waste.

🌎 Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
Food production contributes significantly to climate change, from greenhouse gas emission to soil degradation and biodiversity loss. Urban farming can alleviate some of this stress on the planet, by making underutilised spaces productive.

We had a brilliant time last week at the @planted_cities event! We learnt a lot from the excellent panel of speakers not only on the environmental and wellbeing benefits of bringing nature into the urban environment, but also the potential such change has to create a prosperous future.

National Trust research says that a £5 million investment in urban greening could reap rewards valued at £200 million. From job creation, to business opportunities and payback for public health, the future is bright for our sector and we’re proud to be a part of it!

Have you heard about the pop-up Farm at Broadgate London yet? 2FA and 3FA are currently home to an innovative Farmstand. These clever systems use hydroponics (growing without soil) to grow fresh leafy greens and herbs all year round. There will be regular harvest dates where you can come along to pick up some ultra-fresh, locally grown veg and herbs from the team at Square Mile Farms, who bring urban farming to offices for this very purpose. There will also be more Farmstands popping up over the estate in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for updates. #freshveg #urbanfarming #farmstands

In today's post, we take a look at the London company, Square Mile Farms. #hydroponics #Sustianability #cityoflondon #sustainabledevelopment #verticalfarming https://www.citifoodslondon.com/post/company-profile-square-mile-farms
Hi all 🙂 Over the past year I have become an avid enthusiast of growing via hydroponics and on vertical farming in general. I believe it will be a solution to answer various sustainability challenges we face today. Moreover...I’m excited to share my first home hydroponic installation! I could not have done it without Dhiresh Tailor’s excellent knowledge and guidance - a big thank you to him and Square Mile Farms for the inspiration 🙏 The system complies of a nutrient tank, that contains a pump inside, which directs water up to the drips on top of the grow towers. The nutrient water travels down through the wick, to the bottom of the tower where a gutter catches the water and returns it into the nutrient tank. The growth has been consistent after 3 weeks and the plants are looking healthy! If anyone has any further advice please share and curious to know if anyone has also recently setup a system and how it is going?
Discover how to propagate at home with Square Mile Farms and horticulturist Hannah Grows in this online session. You'll learn how to grow new plants from existing ones at home and cover the tricks of sowing seeds, taking leaf cuttings, stem tip cuttings, rooting in water, rooting in compost and a Q&A section. Part of The Sessions at Home, a series of online classes and workshops to enjoy from the safety of your own home. Book your ticket here http://ow.ly/UEr150B2yrY
