Last week marked the start of a new collaboration between myself and Stroom Den Haag, a two-year programme entitled Foodprint-Sitopia. Part of my own work in developing sitopia as a collaborative, conceptual and practical design tool, this will unfold as part of Stroom’s ongoing Foodprint programme, through a series of workshops and events on the theme of sitopia, culminating in a conference, exhibition and publication in December 2011.

The inaugural meeting involved many of the people with whom we will be collaborating, including those from Winy Maas’ Why Factory, Wageningen University, Oxfam Novib and the Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving.

If you are interested in getting involved, please get in touch! I will be posting more information about my broader Sitopia Project in the next few weeks.

    The Onion Shed are just starting out on some trials of growing high-value veg in north Lambeth using different ratios of food waste including a by-product from Costa coffee’s roasting process and Aardvark recycling’s food waste compost. It’s a very exciting experiment being carried out at Roots and Shoots . Shall keep in touch to let you know how it is growing .
    Fantastic evening at Imperial College the other month , thank you.

    Hello, I am studying a Master Degree in Sustainable Development and I read the book “Hungry City”. The book, besides fascinating, made me become completely interested in the relation between sustainability and food. Coming from an academic context where sustainability has been focused more on the issue of energy, it results quite interesting this other view; especially for I believe in considers deeper implications for society. I would like to know more about the Sitopia Project to see if it could fit with my current activities and if not, to see if there are other parallel or future possibilities for me to participate. Thank you in advance.

    Dear Carolyn Steel,

    In June last year I’ve finished my masters at the Faculty of Architecture in Delft, The Netherlands. As a part of my Master 2 project, I have written an essay on the influence of teh all available food in the city on people health. As a guideline i used the book ‘Eat this’ by Nio. From that time on I’ve got interested in the theme’food in the city’. I’ve kept a close eye on the activities of Stroom and will visit the film programme this weekend. In autumn this year I’ve read your book ‘Hungry city’. I would be interested to be part of the workshops and lectures and maybe more. Regards, Inge de Boer
