Just someone who believes that a Vertical Farm, in all its beauty and magnificence, can become an icon of change.
I’m an applied Bio-engineer from Belgium who has been on a vertical farming quest since 2012. I combine my love for vertical farming with the passion for strategy, rhetoric & (international) collaboration to help transform our society into a healthy ecosystem.
In order to get to this advanced civilisation where Sapiens & the rest of Nature co-exist and thrive, I believe that we must create globally interconnected communities that uphold the ecosystem-values and mindset.
Via Urban and Vertical Farming we can do this by building community owned AMI-systems (AMI = Aquaponics, Mushrooms & insects). These high tech food producing ecosystems mimic nature’s complexity, and use “waste” to create food, community & life.
Or in other words:
I’m just someone who believes that a Vertical Farm, in all its beauty and magnificence, can become an icon of change.
Anno 2018-2019, I am putting all my love into Pad en Stoel (urban mushroom farming), GroeiNEST (Ghentian Network to support local, healthy and sustainable food) & AMI’s Farm lab (international collaboration around high tech food producing ecosystems). Next to that I am also a hobbyist philosopher, love-coach and boxer, read all about it on this blog.
