Brilliantly ambitious, The Biospheric Project aims at nothing less than a total change in the way we think about food, farming and the environment. When the site threw open its doors to the public, 2,375 people were welcomed to visit this inspiring agricultural laboratory and see plants, fish, chicken and worms take their place in a carefully constructed eco-system within an old mill on the banks of the River Irwell in Salford.

MIF Creative brought The Biospheric Project to children aged 3-11, engaging 10 classes within close proximity to the site in artist-led workshops bringing urban growing to life; and a programme of related events, including tours, talks, films, how-to workshops and family sessions, explored how these experiments into food, technology and design can help forge a new way of urban living.

Keep up to date with The Biospheric Project's ongoing work by visiting their website here.

This groundbreaking urban farm experiment set up in Irwell House, a disused former printworks on East Philip Street, Salford, looks set to be one of the stars of the 2013 Festival... and its farm shop, 78 Steps (now that’s what we call sustainability), a valuable legacy for the local community.
