Bringing the #futureoffood to the table
EatThis. has invited three young and ambitious professionals to join us for an intensive 3-day residency program in the Dutch Westland area on 21, 22 and 23 June 2023. All three are already professionally devoted to connecting the world of food to society. With this residency program, we aim to accelerate their understanding of the horticulture sector and its potential, as well as create meaningful, intergenerational connections.
We host residencies like these to help overcome the gap between society and food, and between the cities and the countryside. People often don’t realize where their food comes from, and what it takes to facilitate their lifestyles.
If we want to create a sustainable #futureoffood, this gap needs to be overcome. To be able to create the ideal food system of the future, we first need to understand our history, and present. And we need to come around the table, and learn about all the actors and contributors to our food system.
In this residency, we bring #thefutureoffood to the table and connect them to some of the most outstanding companies and visionaries in the food domain. We want to thank Westlands Museum, Greenco, Tomatoworld, Geothermie de Vogelaer, Koppert, Blue Radix, Rijk Zwaan, Koppert Cress, Plukkerij Framblij, Ter Laak Orchids, Dutch Wasabi and the World Horti Center for opening up and making this possible.

More about our in-residencies in horticulture
We believe that, in order to find solutions on how to feed the world without harming the planet, we need to collaborate and connect to society. We need to embrace possibilities and innovation and team up with artists, designers, economists, politicians, and creative thinkers to come up with new ideas for the future of food.
