After graduating the Organic Agriculture master at WUR only a couple of months ago, Lisa Fellmann would like to share her experience taking over a little vegetable farm in Amsterdam-West. She developed the business as part of her internship and now the Stadsgroenteboeren (City-vegetable-farmers) are up and running. Together with her friend and colleague Laura, she will tell us all about the CSA business, how it came to be, and what the journey looks like setting-up such a business as an internship with WUR. A unique opportunity to gain real interesting insights whilst enjoying your lunch-break.

Have a quick impression on:

Farmers’ Tales a weekly dialogue on the practice and politics, narratives and nuance of food production. An informal place to meet up with other students, PhD’ers, researchers, farmers, peasants and toekomstboeren. Share your ideas and questions or just pass by to gain knowledge on a variety of topics (e.g. for your thesis or internship!). We will provide you with interesting movie screenings, speakers, debates, and discuss these topics together. It’s also a place to discuss your own ideas, team up with people and organize! If you would like to share a project, your thesis or just an interesting idea, let us know and the floor is yours…

In 2019-2020 we will have a few small series (three following weeks) of Farmers’ Tales throughout the year. As the year theme in 2020 will be climate change mitigation and adaptation, we would also like to address specifically these topics when we invite the farmers or researchers.
