FARMsterdammers | Amsterdam Kitchen

Amsterdam Kitchen 20/06/2020

Edu Hernández and Rafa Ramos of the new Farmsterdammers initiative joined the Amsterdam Kitchen radio show this week to talk about what they are doing to help Amsterdam residents to grow their own food, by sharing seedlings, pick-up places and more. They organised their first successful event on 16 May to share seedlings but there’s more to come. Plus lots more local food stories and great music tracks on the show.
