  • FOOD from the SKY

    THE ROOF IS CLOSED until further notice!

    FOOD from the SKY is a world first – A pioneering Permaculture food growing and educational initiative on the roof top of Thornton’s Budgens supermarket, Crouch End, North London. 'A new template for our future'.
    We grow fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits to organic standard that are harvested and sold 10 meters below to the Thorntons Budgens supermarket. 10 meters from Soil to Shelf!

    ‘To grow Life, Food and Community in our most cemented places and to bring the Heart back in our supermarkets!'

    FOOD from the SKY is about inspiring and growing a healthy and sustainable relationship with food in cities and with our supermarkets.

    We are doing this through food growing on roofs and running educational programmes for individuals, schools, supermarket’s team members and organisations.

    By establishing an alternative approach to food production and consumption, we intend to build a 12 steps template that can be easily used by other community groups, supermarkets and organisations.
