We are non-profit, born out of the Incredible Edible Oxford project. We are passionate about local food systems, training and community - creating sustainable food spaces which support natural ecosystems and people at the same time. Our team of 9 highly skilled freelancers works right across the UK.
We design low maintenance and aesthetic spaces for food production and/or biodiversity to benefit natural ecosystems as well as the people using them. Our clients include Urban Design & Landscape Architects, hotels, estates, schools, developers, local authorities, housing coops and individuals.
We promote 'regenerative food production' without chemicals or intervention to the soil. We support existing Market Gardens and train new growers and those wanting to switch careers to horticulture and agriculture. We offer a FARMstart program including access to land.
We educate all ages on producing food in the right way - in schools, colleges, professional CPD, and interactive sessions in care homes.
"Urban Design OBU benefited greatly from edge's Urban Food Production Toolkit workshop. The students developed a masterplan for a global city site measuring the productivity of their designs, management issues, and the social and environmental benefits of UFP."
