EPISODE 2 - Joost Bakker says GROW SOME FOOD

Zero-Waste Action-Man + Urban Food Producer

Fed Square, Melbourne, Lands of the Kulin Nations

Grow some food. 

Plan ahead (to avoid packaging).

Prepare (cook from scratch).

We visited Joost’s Future Food System, where chefs Matt Stone and Jo Barrett will live for 6 months, eating only the food they’re growing onsite. Talk about zero food miles!

In Joost’s future, our homes provide shelter, produce food + their own energy

For now, he wants us to turn our backyards, garden walls, ( bedrooms!) + rooftops into mini-farms.

Connect with your neighbours + communities to share + grow some food together, closer to home.

Google ‘community gardens near me’.
