Perho Green City Farm is lo­cated at the edge of the Malmi Cam­pus of Perho Culi­nary, Tourism & Busi­ness Col­lege (within the north­ern sub­urb of Hel­sinki, Fin­land). Stu­dents in the restau­rant, tourism and busi­ness sec­tors have now op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence where the food comes from, ac­cord­ing to eco­log­i­cal and sus­tain­able gas­tro­nomic phi­los­o­phy, from field to kitchen and cus­tomer’s plate.

The farm is a so-called “phe­nom­e­non-based learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment” in which sus­tain­able en­trepreneur­ship, mar­ket­ing and prod­uct de­vel­op­ment can also be linked to vo­ca­tional train­ing & ed­u­ca­tion.
