The edible Eathouse is a simple response on how to link urban space to green recreation areas and how to supply food with respect to its production – both matters of the socio-cultural quality of life. The Eathouse is an inexpensive modular system of plastic crates and scaffolding. It creates the potential for growing a greater volume of “urban food” in a particularly confined space. The crates are already used in the agricultural industry to harvest, transport and exhibit fruit and vegetables. Designed for a project in Appeltern, 25km west of Nijmegen in the Netherlands, the structures could be positioned on a balcony wall, garden shed roof, or other under-utilized space.
