THIS urban food hub, cafe and arts venue comes complete with a mini 'aquaponic' fish farm, rooftop chicken coops, indoor allotments and a polytunnel.

Once a derelict shop in Dalston Lane, it was transformed into 'the world's first urban farming hub' in 2011 by Something & Son, an eco-social design practice.

A team of enthusiastic volunteers help run the space which hosts a variety of workshops and events.

They describe it as a 'meeting place for London's food lovers and urban farmers, as well as a place to rest your feet, have a coffee and smell the countryside down in Dalston'.
