What is Sustainable Urban Village (SUV)?
Outside2Inside’s ultimate goal is to create a Sustainable Urban Village or SUV, in each city, where we combine the principles of Prevention, Recovery and Recycle of Food Waste. What we mean by that is, create a model for Sustainable Food Reduction in each city by creating an Awareness Center, Sustainable Farm, Farmers Market, Compost Center, Animal Farm and a Preschool all in one place. This beautiful system will serve as a model of Sustainability in Action for each city. This is our dream and we are open to work with appropriate partners to make this dream a reality.
Awareness Center is to serve the activities of the 1st pillar of Outside2Inside, Prevention. All Programs like Self Awareness, Community Awareness, Corporate Awareness and Kids or Youth Awareness will be created and promoted.
Sustainable Farm will use the latest and greatest technologies that’s available to create fresh, organic, pesticide free, regular/ wonky produce naturally. The goal is to look at wonky produce in the same way as the perfectly shaped produce and embrace them.
Farm Table is to serve the activities of the 2nd pillar of Outside2Inside, Recovery. Through this Farm Table, a Farmer’s Market will be created with both regular/wonky produce and will be open for the people in the neighborhood on a regular basis.
Compost Center is to serve the activities of the 3rd pillar of Outside2Inside, Recycle. All Programs like Compost4You will be created and promoted here. The basic idea will be to collect any food waste from the farm and convert into a compost which can be used back in the O2I Farm and any excess may be shared with the neighborhood or other farms.
Animal Farm will have a small farm of animals like Cows, Chickens, Goats etc and goal is to feed them with both good and wasted produce from the Sustainable farms. This is our model to show how the wasted produce could be recycled naturally through “Animal Feed”.
Preschool is to educate the kids, who are the leaders of tomorrow to learn in a natural environment about Sustainability. We plan to educate them about our Food Waste Reduction pillars of Prevention, Recover and Recycle in a practical way through our SUV model.
