Maritime Allotments (in Danish, Maritime Nyttehaver) is working to promote and make possible the practise of urban, community based aquaculture. We work from a base in the inner harbour of Copenhagen where we have a small blue farm and experiment with production of oysters, mussels and seaweed. We aim to strenghten the link between production and consumption, land and sea, nature and city by using the clean water of former industrial harbours to produce sustainable, local seafood.

We offer a range of edutaining and always tasty events at the harbourside for groups up to 25 persons. Events take place under open sky at our Wave Farm (Bølgemarken), where we pull up mussels, seaweed and the occasional oyster and explain how we work, why we do it and how it all began. We also have a couple of containers by the farm dressed up as kitchen, event space and stockhouse, where the story continues with seafood and bubbles.

These are our event packages:

1. Storytelling and handling

You receive hands on experience with urban aquaculture at the Wave Farm. We show you the gear we use, explain about the local ecosystems and guide through the basics of life as a sea farmer. You will probably get a little wet. And definitely a tad hungry and thirsty – see solutions below.
