Re: [pfaf] Re: sustainable global meat production (was 'Plant based diets / 'definition of 'farm' ')
- This is really cool. I did an internship in Germany for a month about 10 years ago and green roofs are all the rage over there. They're big in Chicago, too.I think we all need to get back to raising our own fruits, veggies, and small-scale animals (chickens, etc) ... not only would it be healthier, but who knows when transportation,e tc, will break down and we'll have to rely on our own devices.Thanks for the website.Gail,Horticulturist

discussions and they have lead me to next world TV... Go through this
sight and see what small scale sustainable really is! The window gardens
are fabulous and mine feeds my family of 6 salads every night all winter.
The LED light upgrade makes it almost free to operate.

New York is a city notoriously short on space, but rooftop
farming is on the rise.
While the practice is currently an environmental rather than
a financial trend, meet "Bright Farm Systems" a company that
specializes in providing rooftop farms to schools, non- profits
and corporations. They are banking on that the cost savings
will soon be a real incentive.
This video is one of several in Nextworld TV's new category:
Urban Initiatives. It spotlights all the inspiring solutions
coming straight from the belly of the beast: the big cities,
where food is now growing on rooftops as well as in backyards
and windows, where bike lanes are expanding, co- ops are
forming and guerilla gardeners are on the loose!
