Food in the City – At Home Grow & Compost Systems: from Low to High Tech

31. March 2021 @ 19:00 20:30 CEST

Urban Food Production and Zero Waste

As we ride out the last waves of the pandemic, how can we better prepare for future disruptions to our food system? Strengthening local food systems must include all actors along the food chain. Those of us who live in cities can contribute by growing our own food and being mindful of our waste. These days, there are so many options to choose from! From balcony food forests to the newest technologies on the market – join us to see all the ways we can support a more local food system by growing what we can and giving our waste a second life.

Key discussion points this month will be:

  • How do at-home grow & compost systems contribute to the overall food system?
  • What are the pros and cons of different at-home systems?
  • How is the ‘grow your own food’ movement going in Berlin and other cities around the world?


  • Oliver Hall – Co-Founder, Arc Farms
  • Leandra Bitahwa & Yvonne Sembene– Berlin Urban Farmers
  • Patrick and Marina – 48-Hour Compost with Kalea
  • Ayumi Matsuzaka – Terra Preta with Zukunftpflanzen e.V
  • …. and YOU!!

Join us for an open exchange between potential urban farmers, experienced ones, and anyone simply interested in how to be more prepared in terms of local food security.
