Abundance: Our main inspiration

This book has inspired us all along the process. Since the beginning our team agreed with the ideology that the resources are available but we have to find a way to use them. Our final product gathered different knowledge and resources to create a revolutionary efficient food system by using resources that were going to be wasted.
This is one of the reasons why we are redefining food culture!!!

Concept Video Production

Our team preparing the concept video. The results are amazing even though we had to repeat it many times. Indeed we had fun in the production and laughed a lot when we got confused with what to say.

Expert input

In order to improve our idea and refine it, a month ago we spoke to an expert, an architect and a teacher of 3D design, Katia Blankenstein. Ms. Blankenstein has lived in South Africa as well has an extensive knowledge about organic food, hydroponic systems and framing in Africa. This is why, at the end of the talk with her, we decided to gear our concept towards a concept of a well being a connecting point for two communities and teaching by example, instead of teaching with a kit (some sort of a book). This was incredibly useful, as Ms. Blankenstein commented on the essential need of water in African countries in the first place, which made us realise that this is the first thing we need to provide. Having water will mean that there are going to be enough means for irrigation of the farm, as a lot of water is usually spilled out during the use of the well. Also, the idea of a circular farm, and different stages of production allow us to create a tailored system for each community, not only to provide food to people, but also explore their economic potential, creating new living patterns.
