|Peter Van Mol||Belgium||I grew up on a small farm in Belgium and discovered organic (biodynamic) farming in 1995. At that time it became clear to me I wanted to combine farming or gardening with some kind of social or pedagogic work, which I did in several forms and jobs. |
Since 2013 I developed a CSA garden where a lot of people came to learn and participate: volunteers, trainees, members of the CSA group, neighbors, schoolchildren…
Just now in 2021, I handed over my garden project to orientate my work more to giving courses in biodynamic and organic gardening.
|"Le jardin des 10 mains", wich means the garden of 10 hands is a vegetable market garden project part of a biodynamic farm (ferme Larock) in the French speaking part of Belgium. |
In my presentation I can explain why I chose to develop a CSA with vegetable basket system. The reasons are multiple:
• the commitment between me and the members gives economic stability and solidarity.
• On a social level, it brings together farmers and gardeners and people from the city and enhances exchange.
• This exchange is very rich on an educational level, I learn about their reality and they about mine, about the joys and difficulties of growing vegetables

|Vincent Liegey||Hungary||I have been involved in several direct trade, local farming experimentations and projects in the last 15 years, in France and in Hungary and have been following a lot of others all around Europe or in South America.|
My approach is more about alternative economic models and the importance of the diversification of activities, partners, and skills in order to construct diversity and resilience.
I am particularly interested in informal solidarities and reciprocity toward more autonomy and low-tech, small is beautiful networks.
