RADIUS is pleased to invite you to the panel discussion REGENERATIVE FARMING AND THE FUTURE OF AGRIBUSINESS. The panel discussion will take place on Sunday the 20th of August and is a part of a series of closing events for the current exhibition THE GLASS CITY. Revolving around regenerative forms of agri- and horticulture, the panel will bring together representatives of several initiatives in order to discuss alternatives to monoculture, possibilities for making horti- and permaculture more sustainable, as well as engage in a public discussion around economic models related to agriculture.
⌀ David van den Berg is one of the founders of Stichting Kapitaloceen. They raise capital to buy farmland previously used for monoculture and intensive livestock farming, in order to transform it into regenerative agricultural plots.
⌀ Frank van der Helm is a lecturer and researcher at Hogeschool Inholland, where he researches the transition into circular and sustainable forms of horticulture.
⌀ The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) is a network of young professionals dedicated to changing the current food system. Amongst others they organise the Slow Food Youth Network Academy, a program of six months within which participants visit and engage in conversation with farmers, fishers, chefs, scientists and policy makers.
⌀ Four Siblings (aka Four Sisters) is a public garden and art project in Amsterdam that uses the traditional Latin American milpa technique, an agricultural technique in which corn, beans and pumpkins live in symbiosis.
