- To teach skills and demonstrate the value of considering alternative ways of doing food in cities.

 

- Raise the profile of food and urban agriculture in Birmingham

 

- Prepare for the future – become adaptable for a city with less fuel, water and resources

 

- Show how important art & culture is to the transformation of space, place and cultural change

 

Create a place that people want to visit that has integrity, people led - a Spontanous Landscape!
