Urban farming at Losæter – On the edge of Oslo’s city centre where the Alna river meets the fjord, is an area called Bjørvika. In 2013 Future Farmers along with the Flatbread Society raised a temporary bakehouse to host public programs related to art and urban food production. Soil from 50 farmers throughout Norway was transported to this area creating the beginning of a cultural grain field. On that day Losæter, Oslo’s first city garden, was given its name.

Today about 400 people are involved in the Losæter project, all from different areas in the community. Students, herbalists, bakers, beekeepers, farmers and volunteers of all kinds continue to help develop and create a special community. Read more about It takes a village …
