Horticulture and a regional, regenerative food system

“Parties that can come up with these solutions will be the winners of the future.” A statement by HRH Prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme of Compazz Foundation, referring to the connections between horticulture and regional food systems.

On this issue – how to establish this connection – Greenport West-Holland, in cooperation with Amped and Local2Local, organized a meeting for horticulture entrepreneurs, researchers, regional governments and regional food pioneers.

The trend of regionalization of food seems to be a permanent one. For horticulture, this means reconnecting with the city through food and embracing social value and relevance – think preventative health and sustainability.

Greenport West-Holland, through action agenda Health and Happiness (Natasja van der Lely) and transition program Circular Metropolis (Else Boutkan), will continue to flesh this out, also in collaboration with organizations such as Amped and Compazz Foundation.

Local experiments with healthcare institutions, schools and food in large companies and institutions, joining City Deals and prevention agreements, and expeditions to, for example, the rollout of such a regional food system in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area by Amped.

With entrepreneurship and innovativeness, horticulture can play an essential role in this.

Watch what the participants have to say about connecting horticulture to regional food systems.
