Blurb/Shorttext:
The Gourmet Gardens Project aims to expose the potential of urban agriculture and the growing movement of local food production that has the power to substantially benefit our cities and ourselves. It offers a product-service-system enabling people to become active participants in local food systems, with the purpose of producing goods within their own home for personal use or for small businesses that can potentially scale-up. To facilitate this process, a modular grower system with seedlings-supply service has been designed for helping people to construct and maintain household gardens. The project is a proof of concept, on designing urban systems for ecologically supportable, contemporary lifestyle with emphasis on the implementation of eco-conscious objects, a model where household furniture adopts to the functionality of food production. Altogether the goal was to design solutions for promotion, awareness and effective application in order to realise food production in a daily life environment. To improve society’s relationship to nature, to draw on to people’s enthusiasms so that motivation can be followed through into action.
