Izmir Sustainable Food Project

Interview Organic Food Project

Hello, my name is Dogukan, from the Izmir team. My group mates and I did an interview with the school’s literature teacher who is responsible for all the work about the sustainable and organic food.

Also our Zürich team mates Melanie and Gözde did an Interview about Sustainable Food in Zürich-Oerlikon. Check it out here: Sustainable Food »

And here is the Interview:

Hello Sir, what is your position in school?

I am a literature teacher.

What is this sustainable food?

Sustainable food production has typically been a small scale affair with gardeners, allotment holders and farmers producing various in-season food crops for their own consumption or to sell at local markets. But sustainable farming practices are also essential in feeding the worlds growing global population as the competition for land use not only for building and development, but also for the growing of biomass energy crops becomes more challenging.

Thanks, but what are you exactly doing in this school ?

Firstly, in this project, we are working with Erasmus so we get an allowance to grow our own organic and sustainable food. Then with this allowance, we started to build a little garden in our school. We planted vegetables like cucumber and onion, then I made an irrigation system for crops. Later we had an excellent success. All the crops were very good and 100% organic.

Wow, I think your project is very good and helpful.

Thank you, we did this for the future of our children, our world. Organic and sustainable food will save the world. Everything will start with planting a crop.

Very interesting idea. You are a very clever man. Your intelligence is like a poison.

Thank you. (we laughed)

Do you want to tell anything else to our friends in Switzerland?
