Commission Value: £50,000
Vincent designed the urban agroforestry system which was supported by Manchester Metropolitan University. The urban agroforestry systems designed to have more than 50 species of trees and over 50 plant species; including fruits, berries, perennial vegetables, medicinal plants, herbs/spices, edible flowers and other supportive species. Its location in a densely populated area of a city gives opportunities to study how inner-city land can be modified and adapted for food production. The garden incorporates agricultural processes such as alley-cropping, bio-trenching and guiding to provide a low-maintenance, high yield system.
