I really liked going to the mill in Dalson last summer -all that corn! I longed for dungerees.
Set up by architects EXYZT as part of the Barbican’s programme ‘Radical Nature’, the dalston mill referenced the same project set up in NYC in early 1980s where people made bread from planting a urban wheat field.
Many of the themes and arising discusions where influenced by ideas of community and social enterprise, a cupboard interest too!
Excitingly, a little pird has told me that interesting projects will be happening again this summer, based around the theme of gardening, so HURAH!
To get a mch more indepth, coherent backround of the mill project, check out theeesee guys with their excellent post >>>wemakemoneynotart <<<<
