Amsterdam's URBAN FARM

Imagine an urban farm in Amsterdam-Noord, where fresh fruits and vegetables are grown, perhaps even fresh fish; a place where pigs and chickens are free to roam and graze; where you can gather fresh produce and enjoy the green and productive scenery of the countryside in the middle of the city. Creative City Labs wants to bring the food chain closer to urban consumers  with a new urban farm in Amsterdam-Noord. An urban farm allows dwellers to experience how food grows. They've found a vacant lot that they want to turn into a vibrant place that promotes social interaction. Sounds like a good idea? You can make this initiative happen! The area is 4.2 hectares in total, which will be available for this initiative for ten years – for free. However, creating a strong business case for the plot takes time, energy and site-specific research. Through crowdfunding, you can adopt one or more plots and contribute to turning their ambition into reality. And soon you'll be able to pick the fruits (or vegetables) from your own investment :-) you’ll be able to enjoy the first harvest by receiving a well-filled food crate!
