Thomas Harttung Urban Food Systems

Thomas Harttung founded home delivery company Aarstiderne, revolutionizing the way prople buy organic produce thereby making sales figures explode. He thinks 80 pct of the worlds population will live in cities in 2050, compared to 50 pct today.

He says around 50 pct of farming is done by small farms, although we tend to believe most is made by large units. We should hold on to this and do more farming near the cities, in articicial soils, like amazonians and others did for ages. And we can farm fruits in the parks of New York City and lettuce on the roof tops. And we can eat ants, he says and then Rene Redzepi brings out two boxes of yellow ants, and the crowd storms up to savour the critters.
