The fourth edition of the Good Food event, organised by Bruxelles Environnement, will bring sustainable nutrition into the spotlight with events across Brussels from Friday to Sunday.
On the programme: kitchen garden visits, sampling, recipes, zero wastage, and so on. The event, which puts sustainable nutrition in the spotlight, will culminate with a big Good Food festival on Sunday at Tour & Taxis.
Brussels inhabitants will also be able to try their hand at aquaponics – a combination of hydroponics and aquaculture (fish farming) -, or discover urban farming projects.
Around 50 events will take place all over the capital, with free cookery workshops, vermicomposting, edible plants, homemade herbal teas, and a visit to a socially-oriented convenience store.
“Good Food” ambassadors will also be taking part in various lectures on such subjects as the challenges of urban farming and the preparation of low-cost, organic meals using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. A screening followed by a discussion is also planned.
This year, on top of all the other activities, a big Good Food festival will set up shop on Sunday at the Tour & Taxis site from 12 noon until 5:00 PM and will include a concert by the artist Kalune.
The three days are part of the 2016-2020 regional strategy for a sustainable food system in the Brussels area. The complete programme is available here.
