Creative City Lab hosts a day for eager cultivators
Let’s talk about city farming! Also dubbed Urban Agriculture, we see a rise in small and larger initiatives in our hopelessly crowded cities around the world. New York, Berlin, Beijing, Havana and Amman are but a few examples where citizens (and sometimes the state) have picked up their shovel for some serious farming or gardening. This trend has not bypassed the Netherlands. On April 4th, Creative City Lab organized a gathering at the NDSM dockyard in Amsterdam, where city farmers, professionals and students came together to discuss this increasing trend. For Creative City Lab, the day also functioned to present a plan in which sixteen excellent students from varying disciplines work on a strategy to cultivate two pieces of land in Amsterdam, aiming to turn it into a successful business case.
