The Cross(x)Species adventure club enlists people to taste a biodiverse and delicious future, and furthermore, to engage in enticing experiments, invest in food innovation, and participate in re-designing our collective relationship to natural systems.

Food can not only be redesigned to reduce the environmental costs, but to promote, augment and remediate ecosystems –greatly amplifying a positive androgenic effect. This requires understanding the food web and community structure, chemistry, nutrient cycles and organisms behavior within the context of complex ecological systems.

Like the web 2.0 of the food systems, the cross(x)species adventure club guides us towards a participatory, DIY, and multi-platform food systems (to complement centralized control under the FDA regulating service). In short food as a medium of art, adventure, pleasure and agency.
