April 1: CEMUS Urban Farm

Welcome to CEMUS Urban Farm: A place to explore and work with growing food, wildlife habitats and meeting a new community!

If you want to try growing food, building insect hotels, testing out new ways of thinking about our food futures – this plot is where you can do it! We have been given a plot on an area of urban farming in Ulleråker. Last year, this ran as part of a project in the SDPMC course with a group of CEMUS and other students and researchers. Students are very welcome to join, lead, and grow food on this plot – it is yours after all! On the 13th of April, 13.00 – 15.00, the kommun is hosting a Growing Day in Hospitalsparken, this is where we can plan the plot, meet others who will be growing there and get involved with some workshops. See attached pdf for information on the Growing Day (Stadsodlingsnytt).

We will have a short gathering for those who are interested in joining the CEMUS urban farm for the whole growing season. We meet April 1st 17.00 – 18.30 in Kollaboratoriet to discuss the possibilities! If you have any questions, please email me (laila.mendy@cemus.uu.se), or come and meet us at CEMUS, Villavägen 16, Uppsala.
