Botildenborg Foundation re-imagines cities: “Stadsbruk”, the urban farmers’ incubator in Malmö

Cyrille Gaubert, in charge of the “Stadsbruk Urban Farmers Incubator” project, is a French expatriate in Malmö, Sweden. By getting into urban agriculture personally, he discovered that he could help other farms to develop thanks to his entrepreneurial experience.

“Stadsbruk” is a sustainable project carried by the Botildenborg Foundation that started in 2011. It promotes and facilitates the start-up of urban agriculture businesses by giving them keys to grow by promoting sustainable urban development.

At Stadsbruk, the ideal of tomorrow’s farm is one that truly works with the soil, where the quality of farms is an indicator of well-being in the city and not just a production tool

This initiative has created spaces for biodiversity in the city and promoted organic and quality food for the inhabitants. At the national level, this initiative can, if generalized, reduce Sweden’s dependence on other countries for food.

Stadsbruk acts by educating municipalities about urban agriculture and then developing partnerships with cities. Then, they can help urban farmers to get started by offering them a training phase via the ‘urban agriculture test area’ they have at their disposal and then making land available to farmers.

In this way, their actions contribute to social and territorial integration, by opening up neglected urban and peri-urban areas, and by allowing more social interaction between the inhabitants, through the sale of the products of the urban farms installed in these areas.

This is certainly another inspiring story worth highlighting that promotes sustainable development through alternative solutions to global problems.
