The Kaskantine is currently in construction. The Voedselkringloop is open Friday's from 17.00-18.00. Tours are possible by appoimtment.
The KasKantine aims to contribute to a “future-proof city”. We empower ourselves with tools to fight against climate change and biodiversity loss, and at the same time mobilize our community against its consequences. We recycle materials together, manage food waste and cook with the neighbourhood. We create gardens and strengthen local knowledge and social networks.
In addition to our off-grid day-to-day functioning, we are also actively petitioning the municipality of Amsterdam to form a new relation with its citizens, allowing citizens to take over management of land and water in places where it is currently underused, and/or where the current management does not contribute to the well-being or sustainability of the neighbourhood. These can be temporary places, or places to which natural functions (i.e. gardens or biodiverse spaces) can be added. We work on formalizing these win-win situations into new land- and water-use contracts.
