Yes, it is true, this year we are gonna host the third edition of our Food Autonomy Festival (FAF)! Even better, because the last two years were such a blast, we are expanding the FAF#3 this year from a one-day event into a three day agricultural action-camp!

Program for the Food Autonomy Festival #3

The festival will take place in support of the threatened organic farm Boterbloem and the greater Lutkemeerpolder, against the SADC Schiphol airport-oriented business park and the corporate concrete and plastic profit-driven world that needs this destruction.

The weekend will be filled with workshops, presentations, panel discussions, performances, delicious vegan food, some direct actions, action trainings, and an awesome kids program! So come for one day, or all 4, and enjoy learning and growing with us!


Where: Lutkemeerpolder in Osdorp (Lutkemeerweg, 1067 TH Amsterdam)

How to get there: From central station you can take the Sprinter to Station Lelylaan. There take the Tram 1 (direction Osdorp De Aker) until Amsterdam, Matterhorn. From there it is a 15 minute walk. With the bike it is a beautiful 35 minute ride from Central Station.

Camping: We offer free camping from Thursday (30.05.) evening until Sunday midday (02.06.) at the festival. If you would like to camp, please bring your camping equipment. We have toilets and water stations, but will not have showers.

Accessibility: While there will be an accessible toilet on the terrein and we will try to make some wooden pathways, the ground at the camp is very uneven, which could be difficult to move across for some folks. If you have a specific need you can contact us to get more information about how we can try to accommodate it, at

Fees: The festival is free, however donations in cash would be greatly appreciated. None of the organisers, speakers or people giving workshops are getting paid, everything is being organised on a voluntary basis. However, there are costs associated with infrastructure and therefore we would kindly suggest a donation of 8 euro per day. Also the food, which is provided by "Le Sabot", is based on donations, and the kitchen collective suggests 7 euro per day for coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Dogs at the festival: We would appreciate if you would not bring your dog, because we have a full kids program which will hopefully attract a lot of kids. If there is no option for you to not bring your dog, please keep it on a leash and clean up after it.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED: We are still in need for people to help building up the camp on Friday morning the 31st. And to dismantle everything again on the 2nd of June from 14:00 on.

If you would like to help, please contact us under
