Grow Birmingham


The ‘Grow Birmingham’ vision will help reduce the effects that food production has on climate change by increasing sustainability and encouraging a circular economy with the means of using food waster to produce fertiliser to grow locally sourced food; rainwater collection to conserve water; and, renewable energy from solar power, biofuels and food waste. The design also focuses on increasing biodiversity, education and health and wellbeing by providing opportunities to grow healthier food and opportunities for exercise.

My name is Karishma Ladva and I have had an interest in design from a young age.
Designing clothes in fashion & textiles and leaflets & posters in graphic design at school was something that I found engaging. My interest in design inspired me to look for a course at university that incorporated design and that would improve the environment we lived in, leading me to explore Landscape Architecture. I aspire to enhance health and wellbeing through landscape design.
