The massive effort to feed cities is often overlooked. The string of processes required to get food from the farm to the table has significant social and physical impact on the human population and the environment. It has shaped society from the onset of civilization and continues to influence our world across disciplines and industries.

Can reinforcing the infrastructure of food be the design impetus for Abule Eko? Can it be the thread that unifies design interventions along the road from farm to market?
