Food and nature 4 you

The Food4You Festival should focus on nature as well, says Tia Hermans of the Landscape Centre. She started a campaign to expose the inferior position of nature within Wageningen UR. The first target is the Food4You Festival.

Hermans says the Executive Board is continually lobbying hard for the agri-food sector but does not do the same for nature and green spaces. You cannot have healthy food without healthy nature, according to Hermans. 'Nature and food should always be mentioned in the same breath.' A new banner for the festival has already been made. 'They can use it free of charge.' Hermans will be handing out flyers to people visiting the festival to draw attention to her heartfelt plea.
