3000acres aims to unlock underutilised land across the city to grow food and build strong communities.
THE PROBLEM: At the moment accessing land for food growing process is a complex process. There are no standard approaches and no best practice models. To unlock land and create opportunities to grow more food in more places collaboration between the public sector, the private sector and the community is needed.
TOWARDS A SOLUTION: Using a web platform which maps land and connects people, 3000acres will give communities the information and tools they need to reclaim and re-purpose underutilised spaces as food gardens. This will make it easier for more people to grow more food in more places.
We are developing an open source web platform – we would love you to get involved, have a look herehttps://github.com/3000acres/3000acres
BENEFITS: People who grow their own food, eat more fresh food more often. But its not just about that – underutilised land holds so much potential – we want to help people to incubate more projects, organize locally and build strong communities.
The 3000acres vision of the future begins by giving communities the information and tools they need to reclaim and re-purpose underutilised urban spaces.
