INSECT FARMING

Brikena Dunisha
Sustainable insect farming is frequently touted as a more sustainable alternative which can contribute greatly increasing food security. The current projection is that by 2050 the world population will reach 9 bil- lion. Therefore, based on these findings I am introducing insect farming in Oslo house Hackney Wick. Moreover, with sustainable cricket food

Introducing other insects such as Silkworm for silk production and Cochineal for producing carmine dye for food colouring and fabric colouring. Using food wastage as an alternative to feed crickets and white mulberry trees for the silkworm and cactus trees for the cochineal. Furthermore, the leaves from these trees would be recycled and be used for fabric printing and dying.

A zero-wastage sustainable insect farming that would in turn increase the economy and bring a different outlook onto the Hackney Wick community. There would be different workshops through- out the building where different members of the community can come together and congregate to experience a new way of sustainable food and sustainable materials. To add, this would bring awareness of how valuable these tiny insects can be in our everyday life. In conclusion this would help us to live a healthier and more balanced lifestyle for futures to come.
