In full economic crisis, in the shadow of Wall Street, there is an organization that embodies a lesser-known American tradition, in full bloom: the food cooperative Park Slope, a cooperative supermarket run by 16,000 members who work 3 hours a month before to earn the right to buy the best food at unbelievably low prices. Discover this extraordinary and intense organization, which was founded in Brooklyn in 1973 by a few utopians and which today serves as an example for initiatives closer to us.

Bianca Schoonjans is responsible for the Buurderij for the Leuven. A Buurderij (neighboring farm) is a meeting point for better food. You will find tasty products directly from producers in your region. A neighborhood farm means local, fresh, transparent, fair, social and convenient. It brings farmer and consumer back together. This way of working gives the farmer certainty of sales, the consumer receives fair and honest products and the farmer a fair price. With our Leuven Buurderijen, we also consciously opt for farmers who make extra efforts for the environment, nature and animal welfare.
On Thursday 11 February we will launch an online discussion of the docu at 8 pm with an answer to all your questions.
This conference is brought to you by Buurderij Leuven.
