In Willy Wonka chocolate factory you would incur into troubles if you were too curious whereas instead i was encouraged to be curious and to play. My most favourite thing is that the enviroment is as open minded as you want it to be and I got as much experience as I could grasp in one go. There is clearly more to it that meets the eye and one experience is probably not enough. If you are interested in the subject I highly recommend it.

Very informative session about sustainable food systems, opportunities and possibilities of growing food in an urban environment such as London. Andrew & Ed gave us great insight into the design activities and development of Greenlab including tasting some a selection of home grown chilli, homemade Kombucha!

3 Spaces is an exceptional neat example of what can happen when a space is repurposed around the needs of the community. Green Lab does a great job providing an overview of hydropic and aquaponic systems in an urban space. It was neat to witness the ways in which they have worked to overcome the obstacles of nontraditional farming methods.
