Farming the City is a project developed by CITIES Foundation. It has been running since November 2010, investigating the impact of local food initiatives and urban agriculture in our built environments, economic systems and community cohesion. Since then, Farming the City creates replicable food-related process, products and services adaptable to different urban contexts.


The Next Nature Network is a think tank and arts lab that investigates the new forms of nature the human technology creates. Its most recent project, the In Vitro Meat Cookbook, features speculative recipes that explore the aesthetic, ethical and societal impacts of lab-grown meat. This book uses “design fiction” to help readers decide what meat future they actually want.


Steinbeisser Experimental Gastronomy is a series of dinners using local, biodynamic ingredients to highlight the cultural complexity and biodiversity of plant-based foods grown in the Netherlands. Steinbeisser dinners seek to redefine our eating habits not only through promoting rare or overlooked foods, but also through sustainable farming methods and even the very tools we use to eat.
