This Feed Leeds-led project is currently dormant because many of the participating parties have either stalled, ended or changed focus. The Beckett Pocket Beds have been removed. The University Sustainable Garden is no longer run by LUU as a major food provider (but watch this space for new developments soon). Bedford Fields continues to thrive.
Meanwhile, Leeds Beckett Landscape Architecture students have been developing ideas, plans and research for this project for many years. Some of the best schemes can be found below.
Monument Moor Temporary Farm
An innovative use for the eastern half of Woodhouse Moor, aka Hyde Park
Yes, we’re all going to have to learn to eat insects soon. Yum.
Edible Bowling Greens – Healing Veg
Crown green bowling is not as popular as it used to be – what to do with those green squares? (There’s another idea here)
New thinking for Meanwood Valley Urban Farm
Edible Roof Gardens (on LUU Building)
All those flat roofs need to become productive
Formal Bedding Veg and Orchard
Floral bedding is traditional in parks – how to make an edible alternative?
