Burning Ice - Resilient food systems involve so much more than refraining from using genetic modification, chemical pesticides and artificial fertiliser. Come and discover some alternatives that already exist.
The FoAM urban laboratory in Brussels is researching how people and plants can live and work together to create a healthy environment. Their Resilients Salon is a relaxed event with thematically linked food and drink open to everyone. Entry is payable by tomato, home grown or otherwise. The tomatoes will be made into a tasty soup.
It’s the latest trend: producing food in the middle of the city. Urban farming in Brussels is alive and has potential. Maarten Roels (Ghent University) will give a guided bus tour of several town gardens and urban farms.
