ACTION PLAN

Time Frame:

15 Years

Specification:

The static kitchen, that serves a community of about 20 - 25 people, can replace till 10 kitchens and safe the energy through that.
(4000 Kwh/a)
The urban gardening project is able to cover about 10 % of the food that is needed for the community.
The urban gardening project can create up to 25000 qm of agricultural area.
The system of the virtual fridge that will already be installed during the temporary phase is for reducing the food waste.


Description:

The open kitchen project starts with low cost improvised temporary kitchens in areas where many young people live in single or two person households, eg. Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain.
Here the concept of a virtual fridge can be very successful, next to the social aspect of getting people together, a trigger will be the opportunity to safe money and energy. In the future the food sector will become a big monopole of companies whose only aim is profit, to become independent of that people need to work together for their own food. The open kitchen will be the base for that, as it will be combined with urban gardening projects. The community of the temporary kitchens grow older and found families, for their needs the open kitchen needs to transform. The kitchen community becomes a more organized system that can run urban gardening for substantial food supply. The more Kitchen communities exist the better system works, because due to exchange of products the communities get more self-sufficient.
