That’s an excellent news for all those dreaming of an always greener Paris. In the spring 2020, a gigantic 14.000-sqm (!) urban farm will be set on the Parc des Expositions rooftop.
With such a surface, it’s going to be the world’s biggest urban farm. Quite impressive, isn’t it?
All in all, 20 farmers will have the daily mission to take care of the 1000 seasonal fruits and vegetables of over 30 species. Without forgetting they will have to respect organic, sustainable and ecofriendly standards!
Please note that the productions of this huge urban farm will supply the restaurants of the Parc des Expositions (you can’t be more local!), as well as hotels, restaurants and inhabitants in the southern part of Paris and the suburbs. Guy Martin’s new gourmet restaurant at the Parc des Expositions is also said to enjoy it too.
Finally, and it’s only for Parisians who have a green thumb: know that you can also rent plots to grow your very own fruits and vegetables and you can also take part in it with your children for instance thanks to instructive tours.
In other, a great news for local cuisine lovers!
