Jonmar van Vlijmen - De Onkruidenier
De Onkruidenier is an initiative of Jonmar van Vlijmen and Ronald Boer, started to take on the weeds of Amsterdam's city centre. For some years now the duo have been exploring the implementation of this urban vegetation, such as nettle, wild garlic, ivy, dandelions, and daisys into their daily lives. For De Onkruidenier, 'weeds' simply do not exist.
The Netherlands has over 4,300 supermarkets: a unique situation that means anyone can purchase their groceries within a short distance from home. This means that the once plentiful local plants have now decreased in both number and value.
Together with De Onkruidenier we will go on a sunday morning Herb Hunt. We will look for herbs and weeds that we could possibly use for brewing beer. The hunt will end at Mediamatic ETEN where you are welcome to stay for a special beer brunch and a special Bierberaad about forgotten beer history of old fashioned recipes using herbs instead of hops to brew beer.
