Value proposition Stadsboerderij Kortrijk


For context please refer to my journal on:

Though the cooperation and the current businesscase do have allready elements of a new businessmodel, I think we can learn, co-create and therefore improve our model.

Functional economy:
The cooperation members as a collective own the Stadsboerderij Kortrijk. A few people are employed by us. Profits are equally shared.

Circular Economy
We already work with other suppliers to give away our remaining stocks when we can not sell these. In case of remaining vegetables these are used for soup, who is sold by a partner organisation.
Although we can improve by realising more of our dreams by roof and/or city farming. At the start of our cooperation this proved to be not yet feasible in our current business model. But we want to do this in a later stage.

Cooperation Economy / sharing economy
In the current model, realising our dreams is done by a few employees and a group of volunteers.
An improvement would be when..
The cooperation as a collective has more insight off and access to all knowledge, skills and talents of the members. This collective talents and wisdom can be used for all activities of our cooperation.

Value proposition in short:
Reinforcing transition by offering regional bio products on our Stadsboerderij while creating a happy and inclusive social place. Providing an income to those who are vulnerable. Motivating and inspiring more people in our region to become more sustainable and be an ambassador for how Stadsboerderij Kortrijk tries to be a flagship of a new and more social economy.

sustainable greetings
