More and more people live in urban areas. The need for fresh and safe food increases every day. For cities worldwide, this is a key challenge. Intensive, integrated urban farming systems are an opportunity to address this need in a sustainable, innovative and effective way, an important step to complement all urban farming initiatives.
BIGH Farms create sustainable farms which work together with buildings using their energy loss, rainwater, CO2 and natural potential for space, orientation, microclimate and solar exposure. The farms are circular systems. They are designed to produce no waste, minimise energy input and have a positive environmental impact. Farms are an obvious implementation of circular economy: optimised and aiming at reaching zero waste.
BIGH’s farms also create jobs, generate income & boost green urban entrepreneurship. BIGH works with social workplaces for every farm it develops as well as employs workers from the neighbourhood.
