The 2nd of February, selected participants of the event met to debate and explore ways of developing and broadening access to urban farming projects and initiatives.Linda Vermaat moderated an intensive day of re-conceptualization of the state-supported food activities and businesses. The Proeftuin Amsterdam public policy will not provide its support to food and urban farming activities anymore. How to continue? CITIES proposed to re-think about the food sector, localized it and approach it as a local, integrated,system of social and economic activities. Tha participants were divided in 5 thematic workshops in order to develop new strategies and directions. CITIES developed an analysis of the findings and a final report, which can be downloaded in the publication section of this website ( )
