The cities of the future are being built with pieces from our present and our past
Urban farming is a trend that has been popping up in cities for the last few years- it sees
the transformation of unused, unloved spaces in cities to areas of beauty and value, where a sense of community forms on the foundation of soil, seeds and sunshine. It is an example of the shift towards collaborative consumption lifestyles, through which the previously isolated urban lifestyle is being transformed by consumption practices that combine modern connectivity with the community spirit and values of days past. Two examples right here in Stockholm that echo this theme of old and new are Rosendals
and Trädgård På Spåret.
Totally Stockholm takes a look at these two gardens in their current issue, check out these links to find out more about what’s happening and how you can join in at Rosendals and På Spåret!
If you like the sound of this and think that collaborative consumption sounds interesting, join us at FuturePerfect 2013, where some fantastic people will be gathering to hear from Sofia Hamrin about this lifestyle. Check out everything that will be on offer during three days of fun, inspiring discussions and networking, on the program tab
at the top of the page!
