Stichting Uit Je Eigen Stad
Uit je eigen stad is an organisation that aims to reconnect urban dwellers with the production of food. They do this by setting up a network of urban farms in several Dutch cities using vacant plots of land and selling the produce directly to its customers. Uit je eigen stad uses intensive production methods and aims to develop a system that is economically viable. Uit je eigen stad tries to interact as much as possible with its urban environment, recycling urban waste, developing a modular farming operation in which outputs of one module become inputs in another module, hence resources are used optimally and emissions to the environment are minimal.
