The UF BOX - a perfect teaching opportunity for your students

The UF Box Zurich was put together in July 2011 and is UrbanFarmers first showcase. The UF Box is a fully functioning small-scale containerized urban farm enabling the production of fresh food in a backyard or on a parking lot.

 

 

The UF BOX has been hosted at several locations where ultra-local, ultra-fresh food production also provides a perfect teaching opportunity for kids age 7-18. For example, the Zurich International School (ZIS) in Wädenswil has been running the UF BOX for their  5th graders in 2012, followed by the Middle School in Baden in 2013. Currently, the UF BOX is located in Winterthur during the 750 year anniversary of the City.
