TULLA Culture Center, aims to create an Urban Farming School with a focus equipping youth with the skills to farm on urban areas, like rooftops, terraces. Initially they started with urban farming presentations, workshops and courses on agriculture fundamentals, which guided students through the full benefits of urban farming from finding the right seeds to weather conditions to growing plants in urban conditions. Their main course helps participants get started growing their own food, including an introduction to urban farming and lessons on creating your own garden by composting or dealing with plant pests and diseases.
TULLA received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) in 2022 and will be using the award to to continue the education program and to realize more workshops with children.
