“The way we grow, harvest, transport, sell and eat our food is the most destructive human activity on the planet”- Joost Bakker

Imagine solving the world’s biggest problem’s by simply changing the way we live. futurefoodsystem is attempting just that.

Joost Bakker’s long-awaited structure is now complete and you can see it for yourself smack bang in the middle of Fed Square’s River Terrace, complete with aquaponics, solar power, micro-farms, a charcoal tank and rooftop garden.

This holiday season futurefoodsystem has become home to celeb foodies Matt Stone and Jo Barrett as they move, for a few months’ stint, into this 100% sustainable modern urban farm, featuring vertical veggie gardens and mushroom walls, and other living inhabitants such as fish, crickets and worms.

For those more into virtual experiences (or in case you miss out!), we’ve gone behind-the-scenes with Joost Bakker, Jo Barrett and Matt Stone and asked them to explain their creative process, what they’re hoping to achieve and how the greenhouse works.
