In November the Center for Genomic Gastronomy began work on their STARTS4Water residency: DROUGHT IN WATERLAND, commissioned by V2_and co-funded by STARTS4Water. To get familiar with the area they conducted interviews with experts (an engineer, a policy maker and a food forest farmer) who each spoke about the relationship between water management and land use, often touching on climate change and the role of plantings or farming within larger schemes.

They also organized a trip to the Veluwe region, visiting sites of food production, cultural organizations and each of the three primary landscapes (heathland, forest and sand dunes) preserved in the “Museum of Landscape” that is Stichting Het Nationale Park De Hoge Veluwe.
