Description of the innovative solution

Circular economy Collaboration Community building Education - adult Education - youth Food biodiversity Urban farming Regenerative agriculture Sharing economy Women empowerment Urban planning Agricultural development Closing nutrient loop Healthy diet

As urbanisation increases, youth are less interested in farming as an aspirational business. Some other barriers to entry for farming include knowledge and skill. There is a need for training by example and sparking of the community's interest in agriculture as a viable and attractive business with a strong purpose. This innovation is to create dynamic integrated demonstration farms, which aims to be both educational (for farmers and the community) and productive, providing food to the community in a farm to fork manner. This center can be scalable to other communities, providing employment opportunities and skills to the communities adopting such centers.
