+ Carrot City Exhibit Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary!

It has been 5 years since the first Carrot City exhibit opened at the Design Exchange in Toronto. Since then, the exhibit has grown dramatically and been visited by thousands of people at more than 25 venues, in 8 countries, and on 3 continents. Thanks so much to the many collaborators from around the world who helped to make these 5 years an amazing success. And thanks most of all to the hundreds of designers who have been kind enough to share their work with us and who help to make agriculture in cities possible.

-The Carrot City Team.
