The Edible Map of Hackney

YOU ARE HUNGRY: MAPPING AN EDIBLE URBAN HACKNEY investigates how much food can be grown on 25 hectares of south Hackney.

The project is both digital (click here for digital version) or as a walk. The walk in 2010 was from the 5th – 20th September. In 2011 the walk will be repeated: August 18th – 4th September BOOKING FROM EARLY AUGUST

The edible map is a walking and talking project which explores the potential for a 25 hectare site in Hackney to grow food. Each walk last approximately one hour, thirty minutes. There are places for six people on each walk. The walks are not lectures but form part of a discussion about architecture, planning and food-gardening apparent exclusion and potential inclusion into the many spaces around the areas. The walks are audio recorded and used on a web version of the edible map. (click here for digital version)

Mikey Tomkins, local beekeeper and PhD student at the University of Brighton has created the project.
