GROW SOCIAL: New Cross and Telegraph Hill
‘Grow Social’ is an Urban Agricultural Project that takes the form of a community urban farm which showcases the different ways that cities can produce food. Although the site will provide healthy and nutritious food to the local ward populations of New Cross and Telegraph Hill, Grow Social is also designed to facilitate community interaction and skill-sharing across the two wards, whilst making use of less intensive but more sustainable methods of food production. Therefore, the project is about establishing a resilient urban food system that acts as a key functional space for the two separate wards.
