Dam Daily + Ann on Voedselpark Ams & more
Sara & Cathy 28/02/2022
Our radio guest, Ann Doherty, from Voedselpark Amsterdam, on the race against time to “preserve a green piece of Amsterdam for future generations”, specifically by buying the ultra fertile 42 hectare Lutkemeerpolder in Amsterdam Nieuw-West.
In the first hour we had local news out of Amsterdam with Sara Mc and Cathy, plus music picks, as usual (scroll down for the full 2-hour show).

Ann is also part of:
- the Pluk CSA community farming project in Amsterdam Nieuw-West, with about 100 Amsterdamers farming their own produce. They have an open day coming up in March and have currently space for more members.
- Cityplot, educating Amsterdammers on things like balcony gardening, worm composting and more.

The guest interview starts around 0:58:00. Note that Ann has a correction: they estimate the 43 hectare area could feed roughly 10,000 families, not > 100,000 families.
