Koe en Landschap / Cow and Landscape
(17 January 2022)
For the Rural School of Economics - there were visits to cows in Brabant, Het Groene Hart and Schiermonnikoog.

With Van Abbe Museum some dairy farms, crops and "gele vla" were studied. Inez Dekker our co-researcher in NL milked a cow. And we loved to see The start of a learning by doing trajectory, in which we connect the (colonial) past, and an art and agriculture to new "good life" concepts for human and non-human.
