Groningen Regional Food Vision

Posted by Carolyn on October 11, 2010 at 6:13 pm

My current work is focused on sitopia, or food-place: the idea that we can use food as a tool to rethink how we live, as discussed in the final chapter of Hungry City. I am doing this in various ways, one of the most exciting of which is my collaboration with the northern Dutch city of Groningen, with whom I am developing a ‘Regional Food Vision’. The vision is a way of rethinking the city and its region through food, to reconnect city and country, and create new social and physical networks for a better and more sustainable future. We launched the initiative two weeks ago, and there has already been considerable interest. I am thrilled to be working with Groningen, and will keep you posted as our vision develops.

    Hungry City is a revelation in itself and it is thrilling that the ideas of an English author and architect have been embraced by policy makers in the Netherlands. I live and work as a landscape architect in Groningen and would be delighted to help the RFV become concrete or rather edible.
