If you are passionate about real healthy food, this is the community for you: Jurrien Roossien, the man who brought Quinoa to our supermarkets is inviting you to join this community to give healthy food back to the world-as commons.
As a first step, the community will focus on one of the healthiest grains on earth (that you probably don’t know:) fonio (which is gluten-free!). Fonio is a grain that grows originally in Tchad. Its complex root structure ensured that the soil stayed fruitful in desert-like conditions. Fonio is comparable to grass which makes it harvestable every 8 weeks. Regrettably the French colonists exchanged fonio for European weed and Tchad became a dessert.
What if we built (healthy) food productions as a commons, aimed at ensuring food for everybody and not the maximisation of profit or ownership? Let’s look for tangible food production narratives that are almost unimaginable for humans but inspired by how millions of animal species enjoy plants as food. As the food4all community is part of the Friends of the Nature2.0 community which is one, and possibly the most ambitious track of the http://dutchchain.com hackathon, the biggest blockchain hackathon in the World (April 11th -15th 2019). It is also an open community that will gather on https://nature2.ooo. We want to bring together the worlds of food, blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) to explore and build ecosystems, beneficial for society. Another way to put it is that we want to unveil and explore disruptive change before it happens. Working assumption and main challenge of Nature2.0 is the UNIMAGINABLE, but BUILDABLE.
We seek modern out-of-the-box thinkers and do-ers to help us realising the necessary tools. They will be supported by a larger community and make use of time tested and proven biological insights to create building blocks to serve the commons.
