Education for Urban Agriculture & Urban Green Entrepreneurship

On the 30th of March there will be a Green Train event in Almere, hosted by RUAF:

Urban Green Train Multiplier Event
Date: Thursday 30 March 2017 14.00 – 17.30
Location: Aeres, Almere, Stadhuisstraat 18 Almere

Urban Agriculture is increasingly seen as a promising area for new business development. However, starting an Urban Farm requires a variety of knowledge and skills. Knowing how to cultivate plants or rear animals does not guarantee success; you also need to be able to analyse markets and social networks, plan and respond strategically to new trends, as well as to manage and monitor results once your businesses is up and running. It is also crucial to be innovative, sustainable and make optimal use of multifunctional resources. The Urban Green Train project, that was realised in the last years with a team from 4 European countries, encourages and supports pioneering business initiatives in Urban Agriculture by strengthening knowledge exchange, cooperation and innovation between Higher Education Institutions, Small & Medium Enterprises, NGOs and policy makers. In this multiplier event, we share some of our findings and results, including an innovative Training course on Urban Agriculture, innovation and entrepreneurship.

About Aniek Hebinck

I am interested in unfolding sustainability practices and exploring how these are constructed. In this I combine my background in nutrition and sociology with my love for food by focusing on (alternative) food provisioning practices. Currently my research focuses on urban food initiatives and how they attempt to create alternative spaces for food provisioning.
