Farming - Kiruna Sustainability Center

Published: 23 November 2018

In the Farming sub project, LTU and RISE work with investigating the following four parts: 1) Community farming for residents in rental apartment areas in Kiruna to create meetings between people and locally produced food, 2) Building larger city greenhouses for vegetable growing, heated by waste heat from schools, industry or mine, 3) Increased open space growing for higher self-sufficiency and therefore better emergency preparedness and hopefully lower prices, and 4) Using the LKAB mine in Kiruna for growing and storing of mushrooms, spices and baby leaf (ruccola, spinash, pak choy etc.).
