The project “From the Sky to the Table”, a community project promoting food self-sustainability through vertical farming, has been developed in the Aquilino Ribeiro Machado Horticultural Park, between the neighbourhoods of Murtas and São João de Brito e Pote D’Água, in Alvalade.

This workshop explores vertical urban agricultural systems where participants can learn about the benefits and challenges of vertical farming, different models for management and production, its importance in an urban context, and how these systems might contribute to a more sustainable future.

In a “get your hands dirty” approach, visitors will work with the soil and select varieties to cultivate and harvest. Each participant will pick their own salad to take home with them, honouring the name of the original project: “From the Sky to the Table”.
