Recent events in Australia such as the disruption to local supply chains, bushfires and flooding have emphasised the importance of supporting local producers and farmers, to ensure Australia's food security into the future. Couple this with an increased focus on waste reduction and an innovative idea emerges to adaptively reuse underutilised commercial spaces for fully operational vertical farms, with a strong emphasis on "zero food miles".
ULI is delighted to invite members and guests to an intimate and exclusive tour of the Greenspace vertical farm, centrally located in the carpark of the Darling Park office development. The tour will be led by Greenspace founder and CEO Peter Fox and the local farmers on site, Luke Rogers, to get the inside scoop on the future of urban agriculture. The farm grows a range of micro crops including Australian natives, herbs, lettuces, micro herbs, edible flowers and berries.
Greenspace partner with leading landlords, to unlock significant CSR and ESG benefits to drive changes in consumer food demand around freshness and nutrition via their networked onsite farms. Benefits for landlords include improved sustainability outcomes that attract tenants, a reduction in waste and disruptions to the supply chain as well as reducing their CO2 footprint and addressing the challenges of the climate crisis on food security.
