From grey to green: unique farm on top of car park proposed for Birmingham

Birmingham from grey to green

Slow Food Birmingham has submitted plans to build a first-of-its-kind urban farm on top of a multi-storey car park in Birmingham. The development, if approved, will include a farm, glasshouses, community space, garden, education hub and café, and will be managed by a community cooperative. The group aims to “turn grey space to green productive space with the needs and wants of the local community at its heart” and promote sustainable agriculture, reduce carbon emissions and provide fresh locally grown food for Birmingham residents. The car park would also host a hub for delivering locally grown produce by cargo bike to residents, businesses and food justice groups in the Jewellery Quarter and beyond.
