#Auckland #NZ #Sustainability on Steroids: #Organic Farmer Grosses $100K an Acre
Could he have found the most effective way to grow food?
We need #GMOs to feed the world like a fish needs dry land. A controversial farmer in California is proving that a veritable bumper crop can be had using new farming methods that don’t require GMO #pesticides, herbicides, or even weeding, and require 10 times less water than the average farm. The best part – he earned $100K per acre last season without even harvesting all of his land. What kind of super-fertilizer allows Paul Kaiser to grow so much food on a mere 8 acres? Lot’s of rotten food scraps and rotten plants – otherwise known as compost. And he uses loads of it.
#NewZealand #Auckland #NZ Self-Sustaining Town Grows Vegetables in Most Unlikely Places. Could this be the answer to self-sustainability? ow.ly/JRcgo
Imagine raising a vegetable garden right in front of your local police station, and not a single officer inquires about what you are doing. Or, plucking a few cherries from outside your doctors’ office before you go in for an annual check-up. How about harvesting some apples and pears from along a canal path? There are over 70 community gardens scattered around Todmorden, West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, and the residents there are encouraged to take fresh fruit and vegetables as they are inclined.
In the small Victorian town, they’ve decided that waiting on the state to take care of their hungry is not an option. Just outside the police station are three large raised flower beds, full of edible plants. There are kale, carrots, lettuces and spring onions – all free for the taking.
