The Farm Proper is an experiment in the urban landscape. Set & Drift, in collaboration with mi-workshop, have repurposed an industrial dirt lot outside The Bakery in the Barrio Logan neighborhood of San Diego, California. The farm is comprised of abandoned/defunct grocery carts filled with vegetables cultivated organically by a collective of artists, designers, backyard growers, and other creatives. It's a project meant to inspire urban cultivation and pocket farms. Using abandoned shopping carts as our medium, we've designed a scenario to take over a temporarily available industrial lot to provide the community with organically grown food. The designer is the new farmer!
