About the Event
Run by: Zero Carbon Guildford, University Of Surrey
Zero Carbon Guildford are teaming up with local partners, including The University Of Surrey to hold a workshop on vertical farming. The session will include a mix of theory and practical lessons, and discuss the benefits of vertical farming as a food security strategy, as well as the limitations we might face when employing this growing method as a community. Participants will help us to build a working installation that will be housed within ZERO, and which forms the basis of an ongoing community growing strategy as well as providing social benefits to local residents. You'll learn how to form vertical growing towers from scratch, irrigation and power set up, and key tips on germination and crop selection. This is a free workshop, and it will be the first time we've run it, so it will act as a pilot for the ongoing scheme. Come along and be part of the team figuring out how to make the most benefit of this high yield space saving growing method.
