Ep#2 Joost Bakker says “GROW SOME FOOD”

Grow some food.
Plan ahead (to avoid packaging).
Prepare (cook from scratch).

We visit Joost at his Future Food System, FedSquare, Melbourne on the lands of the Kulin Nations.

In Joost’s future, our homes provide shelter, produce food and their own energy.


Joost wants us to grow food where we live.

He says there are a billion houses in the world – imagine if all of these had some soil on the roof and grew some stuff.

Joost wants us to turn our backyards, garden walls, (even bedrooms!) and rooftops into mini-farms.

But for now, he wants us to just grow something we can eat.


  • Plant something (anything!) to eat at home.
  • Prepare (take your lunch to work – no packaging).
  • Prepare from scratch.
  • Connect with your neighbours and communities to collaborate, share and grow some food closer to home.
  • Google ‘community gardens near me.’

Watch the series. Join the movement. Do the stuff!

Because… champions… there’s no place like home and there’s no Planet B.
