Maps,graphics and info of the farm

The right half of the photo shows the urban farm of Botildenborg. The bottom right corner is the market garden (1) with two tunnels; bottom right is the social garden (2); top left is the former school garden (3), now turning into a perennial growing space, and below it, the big polytunnel (4), top right is the former test bed, now unused (5). Between the market and social gardens, the pond captures the water used from the washing station. In the of the farm, there is the farmhouse – the central hub of the farm connecting the different projects. The left half of the photo is the building Botildenborg (7) with the surrounding garden.

  • The above image shows the farmhouse’s set-up (which in the previous photo was labelled with the number 6. The farmhouse is the central hub for all the elements of the farm. Station 1 is storage space for seed trays, soil etc., everything needed for sowing; it also fits an IBC tank for water capture and wood storage. Station 2 is the main post-harvest area, washing station for produce, and a main workspace; the walk-in fridge is also nearby

  • Station 3 is the former washing station of the testbed farmers and has a small post-harvest area and washing station. Station 4 connects to the space in front of the farm shop and is also versatile and used a lot for our markets and public events. Station 5 stores all plastic boxes for harvest.

  • The open-air space between stations 2,4 and 5 is used for the markets, and station 2 is used as the main stage. The outdoor café for these occasions mainly operates from the farm shop’s front.

  • Water points are found around all gardens of the farm and by the farmhouse; they are located by stations 2 and 3.
