As a treat to myself with finishing my first two assignments for the teaching period, I took a trip into the city to check out the Future Food System at Fed Square. It was such an inspiring place to be and in that hour I learned so much about closed-loop food systems and how accessible they can be for everyone! So I am truly grateful to have had this experience and tour the house and we were lucky enough to meet Joost Bakker, the creator of this amazing space. What an innovator who loves to share his knowledge. I have my garden but I just need to make it more prolific with a wicking bed, they seem to be the biz when it comes to gardening!
There was a yabbie with babies, a mushroom wall made from buckets from a cafe, fermenting shelf in the kitchen, zinc top prep tables, gorgeous reclaimed wooden furniture and tiger nuts to make nut milk – amazing! All of this is at a house made out of a shipping container and to be protected from bush fire.
