Public Hall Bromyard

Talk:  Creating a Community Farm for Bromyard

Peter Lane who is organising says:

I have access to funding to set up, and build a Research & Development facility to develop systems for vertical farms, and this will create up to about thirty jobs.  As part of the project we will have training/meeting rooms as we will be providing training for those interested in the subject.

In addition to the above we want to set up the following:

  • Petting zoo
  • Cafe/shop
  • Modern allotments suited for the less able.

I was first interested in vertical farming back in the mid 80's but it was not viable in those days and I have been interested in the subject ever since. Being a farmer's son I understood the hard work in producing food and I was always thinking of ways to make things easier. In the last few years I was the vice chairman for the association for vertical farming which is a global entity to promote the industry, and I finally left to set up my own vertical farming network.

I have connections in the industry and academia across the globe, and I have spoken quite often on the subject at conferences and advised investor groups.

If anyone is interested please do come along and learn more about the industry and what it could do for Bromyard."

If you are part of something similar in another part of Herefordshire - please get in touch and we can pass on details

Keep signing and sharing the Food Charter to build the movement so that innovative projects like this are more connected and supported across Herefordshire!
