Local food for the many people
What if we could grow tasty, nutritious food locally and make it accessible and affordable for the many people? What if we could tackle the increasing demand for food by pioneering a new paradigm of symbiotic food production and distribution, empowering everyone to join in? And what if we could reduce food miles and our environmental impact, and educate our children about the importance of nutritious food in more meaningful and playful ways?
In this session we will unfold The Farm, a SPACE10 lab exploring and prototyping alternative methods for growing, distributing and integrating food production in our cities.
