What if manufacturing was local? What if we grew our own materials to make our own products?
|In this scenario the main character works within an allotment plot that manufactures bicycles. Allotment owners each manufacture different parts of the bicycles that combine to form locally made products . In this system allotment owners also grow bio-polymers which can be harvested and used as a material in 3d printers.|
|The allotment manufacturing system is designed to locate manufacturing and distribution locally within cities. The model is based on allotment farming where local people own their own patch of land to grow their own food. With material production and manufacturing based at local level it increases employment, promotes local identities and reduces the need for shipping products all over the world.|
