When I started to explore the prospects of Aquaponics and Urban Farming back in 2010, I realized its huge potentials of moving high quality and sustainable food production back into the city, whether is plant or food farming. Farming production within the cities and around their fringes could in the same time help minimizing transport, reduce packaging and storage and support overall urban policies of climate resilience and food security.
With funding from the EU Eco-innovation and Nordic Marine (2012 and 2013), and a mandate to set up an urban aquaponic rooftop farm I discovered the many obstacles and barriers urban farming faced at the time. This goes in regards to its non-integration in overall city planning, zone regulations complicating urban food production and the limited amount of buildings and roofs are actually able to carry a ‘green weight’ of significance.
