Innovative and experimental, the vertical farm project in Manchester, overseen by the Manchester International Festival, explores new approaches to urban food growing.

The unique scheme aims to introduce people to the concept of sustainable food via a non-traditional route – growing produce indoors in high-rise buildings – and has a very strong community participation element.
