As part of a festival of world cultures and sustainability in Berlin in 2011, the collaborative international artist initiative myvillages.org (a collective formed by artists from agricultural villages) provided food and drink for 80,000 festival-goers sourced—grown, exchanged, bartered, preserved, foraged and purchased—from 80 co-producers within “wider Berlin.” This comprehensive book shows myvillages’ months-long undertaking to organize locavores with the passion to succeed at this daunting project. For myvillages, the production and consumption of food are cultural and social activities closely intermingled with the traditions of farming and processing as well as concerns of land use, life in modern cities, sustainability and (over)consumption.
