The Patch is a guide for growing, cooking, and sharing food within and between urban share house environments. It helps young people, who often live in shared accommodation, to have an impact on the decentralisation of food production, reestablish connections between the production and consumption of food, and to reinforce food as a central instrument in their social lives.

At a time when young adults are learning behaviours for life The Patch ensures an understanding of the entire cycle of food production, the way the current food supply chain works, and how this can be subverted in a non- commercial, grassroots manner.
