Imagine solving the world’s biggest problem’s by simply changing the way we live. futurefoodsystem is attempting just that.
Joost Bakker’s living, no-waste eco-house is situated smack bang in the middle of Fed Square’s River Terrace, complete with aquaponics, solar power, micro-farms, a charcoal tank and rooftop garden.
From February until November, 2021, futurefoodsystem was home to celeb foodies Matt Stone and Jo Barrett, who spent their days harvesting, cooking and eating the food this 100% sustainable modern urban farm produces – while all waste produced by the house is fed back into the house’s systems: a closed-loop.
Now, the house has a weekly special guest chef who Joost invites to the house to create a unique dish – all made from food produced at futurefoodsystem.
