Pop-up Urban Farm in Hackney

Green Shoots has recently partnered with a UK based organisation Green Lab that are working on a fantastic, techy Urban Farm in Hackney, East London!

We are setting up growing structures in a warehouse for 4 days to run a Farm-to-Table food experience. It's part of Secret London events and sold out already! The mission of this project

is to get urbanites an experience of foraging, seeing ingredients growing and enjoying them! tech elements are applied along the growing structures for watering, light provision and temperature monitoring.

The volunteering is split in two main functions:

11 October- 13 October (Monday- Wednesday): We will be doing a set up of

the installation farm. Creating the dome structures and hooking up all

the tech. Its full days starting 8am - 7pm with complete guidance on what to do.

15-17 October (Friday, Saturday, Sunday):  We will be running the farm to

table event. So volunteers would be helping guests navigate the site, the technology in use.

The time commitment here is: 12pm- 8pm
