Rooftop Republic Academy Open Day

At Rooftop Republic, we're excited to arrive at another milestone in our journey to transform our city, our relationship with food, and our communities through urban farming. In March 2019, we launched the Rooftop Republic Academy, a training programme that aims to raise the next generation of urban farmers to meet the needs of the future.

To celebrate the launch of our Academy we're thrilled to have organised this Open Day for everyone interested to learn more about urban farming, how to get started on growing your own, and how best to enjoy your seasonal harvest. From microgreens growing to making your own seedlings, composting to kombucha tasting, and mocktail workshops, you’ll be getting an all-rounded experience to learn more about how you can grow, consume and dispose of your food.
