CARLA ULRICH

social scientist, food activist, curator, photographer

Hi! My name is Carla. I am a social scientist, activist, curator and photographer. Through my work, I support the transition of our food system towards both ecological regeneration and social justice. I currently lead the non-profit Academy program of Tiny Farms, welcoming new hands and faces into organic farming. I am French and German, navigating between Berlin, Germany and Isère, France.

I studied Social Sciences as well as Media and Event Management, and completed Slow Food Germany’s Academy programme in 2019. The question that matters to me most is how good food can be made accessible to all. My interest therefore lies in , . Besides sharing my insights in talks and workshops, my

As the Academy Lead of the non-profit Tiny Farms Academy, I am coordinating an educational program providing young farmers with the tools and knowledge they need to create their own organic micro-farm. Tiny Farms are small, highly productive farms with lean work processes and low space and investment requirements. By lowering access barriers, we include newcomers and promote new work models in organic farming.

I have been involved in further initiatives shaping a new food culture, such as There, I was in charge of communications and co-organising interdisciplinary events for food professionals, such as Das Symposium. Next to that, I am a volunteer within the Slow Food Youth movement, supporting political campaigns, outreach and partnerships. In 2018, I co-founded the non-profit organization Forward Thinking Berlin, dedicated to empowering young environmental and social initiatives.

To help shed light on today’s most pressing issues, I previously worked as a program curator at re:publica, Europe’s largest conference on the digital societies. With my expertise around food sovereignty and the sustainable development goals, I’ve organized conversations across six international festivals in Berlin, Accra, LA, Detroit, and Portland, involving civil society, policy makers and academia.

Photography is my longest-lasting passion, from 2010 until now. I have found in photography a medium that underlines my political commitment in a sensitive, accessible and joyful way. I love to portray farms, crafts, and people who work with nature. You’ll find my portfolio here. If you need images for your project, event or publication, I’m happy to hear from you.

When I’m not doing any of that, I like to ferment fizzy drinks! You can watch my water kefir tutorial on Fermentiersalon, and read recipes I’ve co-developed and photographed in Slow Food Magazin (issues 03/2021 and 05/2021). Sometimes you’ll find me hosting fermentation workshops, or sharing my starters with an ever-growing list of people across Europe. Cheers!
