10 Words that Change the World

Italy - 25 Oct 12

At the opening ceremony of the Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre, speakers from Alice Waters to Vandana Shiva and FAO Director José Graziano Da Silva interpreted the key words of the event - earth, seeds, water, education, biodiversity and more – in front of a packed auditorium of thousands of representatives of Slow Food and Terra Madre food communities from around the world.

DIVERSITY
“Terra Madre is the celebration of diversity. Of languages, cultures, colors and tastes. Diversity is essential for food security and the importance of food in our lives is clear… There was a time when humans used tens of thousands of vegetables, cereals but today we rely on just a few cereals. But now is not the time to complain. We must focus on going forward and promoting sustainable models.”
José Graziano Da Silva, Director-General of the FAO

SEEDS
“Life renews in seeds. Food begins with seeds. In India the word for seeds means ‘that from which life arises’. Today, the very source of life is being appropriated and privatized. A seed by its very nature gives. This apple seed doesn’t say “give me a royalty or I won’t give you the apple.” Seeds give back and that’s a problem for greed. A seed is not invented; it is millions of years of evolution, thousands of years of breeding. Every patent on a seed is a theft, it is biopiracy.”
Vandana Shiva, president and founder of Navdanya

EDUCATION
“Pleasure and justice must go hand in hand. The power of Slow Food is connecting the two. Pleasure and taste bring people together, bring people back to the table, establishing a new relationship with food and each other. In schools we can reach all children, and if we feed all children delicious wholesome sustainable food it can become a right for all and not just a privilege. We know the unrelenting forces of fast food nation are indoctrinating our children, and that’s why we need the universal and very-possible solution of an edible education.”
Alice Waters, chef and founder of the Edible Schoolyard Project

NETWORK
“Today we are here as one big family to celebrate what was started 20 years ago. What we have built takes dedication, time and working and thinking together. In Uganda we have managed to connect farmers, volunteers, traders, cooks, journalists, local leader, consumers, schools and so on to defend our agri-biodiversity, culinary traditions and values. A sustainable food chain necessarily involves many stakeholders and to defend it we must stay connected and continue building the Slow Food and Terra Madre network.”
Edward Mukiibi, Slow Food Mukono, Coordinator of Thousand Gardens in Africa project in Uganda

EARTH
“The earth has always been violated, misused and mistreated, but its voice never stops talking to us with passion. We love our earth, it’s the only thing that truly exists, producing baskets of sacred food that end up on tables of the world. The earth can be a huge wonderful garden, where we harvest the ideas of human knowledge. With respect, determination and creativity, this immense knowledge can ensure the earth offers not only the daily bread, but gives rise to dignity, freedom, quality, joy, for all living creatures.”
Carlos Vanegas Valdebenito, CET Expo Movil, Chile

WASTE
“If we managed to cut total food loss and waste by half we would have enough food to feed one billion more people, without having to increase production and without placing additional pressure on national resources... With hunger, the only number acceptable is zero.”
José Graziano Da Silva, Director-General of the FAO

WATER
“Water arrived on earth bringing us the gift of life. We, human beings, are organized water. Soil absorbs water as if a treasure, nourishing the countless other crops of the world’s biodiversity. Streams and rivers cross continents, finally reaching seas and lakes, and offer us resources. But once polluted, water is no longer a source of life but a carrier of poisons that cause diseases and kill. We can bring back life and ensure the source of life is pure again by cleaning up environments.”
Carmen Martinez, Coordinator of Slow Food Amaranth Presidium, Mexico

ENERGY
“Following the nuclear incident in our area and the resulting very high level of radiation, we have been looking for ways for food producers to save their land and products from the contamination. Nuclear policy could radically destroy principles at the basis of the Slow Food movement and we believe it is necessary to promote the use of alternative energies. It doesn’t make sense to use energy sources with high potential to pollute our environment and which destroys connections between people and food, life and our precious land.”
Yoko Sudo, Slow Food Fukushima, Japan

BIODIVERSITY
“In my region, the Balkan cultural and food biodiversity is the result of the wide variety of traditional agricultural practices and gastronomic heritages. The region is home to many old breeds and plant varieties. Facing globalization, intensification and industrialization of agriculture, demand has risen for animal products and livestock development, concentrated on very small number of breeds. This is something very very dangerous. Safeguarding rare breeds is also a tool for ensuring the future of communities. Only in this way and only together can we preserve agrobiodiversity for future generation and save these valuable genes.”
Ivanov Sergez, Stara Planina breeders food community, Serbia

CELEBRATION
“In these years, Terra Madre has been observed with curiosity, seen in terms of anthropology, folklore. No. This reality must be seen as a big political phenomenon. The politics of Terra Madre will come with serenity and celebration...This crisis won’t be overcome with sadness. At Terra Madre, politics has taken joy by the hand.”
Carlo Petrini, Slow Food International founder and president

An Organic Vertical Farming Success Story

An Organic Vertical Farming Success Story | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
The FarmedHere urban farming company, which has been successfully conducting urban farming work in the Chicago area since 2011, has received USDA organic certification.

 

The FarmedHere urban farming company, which has been successfully conducting urban farming work in the Chicago area since 2011, has received USDA organic certification.

The organic vertical farming practice makes use of derelict warehouses to produce food for the community. The company recently expanded with a new 90,000 square foot post-industrial building in Bedford Park, Illinois, on top of their 10,000 square foot warehouse in Flanagan and a smaller operation in Englewood.

The new warehouse, located 15 miles from Chicago, grows more than one million pounds of greenery such as herbs, arugula, watercress and other micro greens, per year. The greenery is sold to local restaurants and stores in Chicago, including Whole Foods and Green Grocer.

Production is based on two systems, aquaponics and aeroponics. Several types of fish, mainly tilapia, are grown in the tanks that feed the aquaponic system which results in very little water wastage.

“We use about three percent of the water of traditional agriculture and it’s all recyclable,” says FarmedHere CEO Jolanta Hardej.

 

The indoor nature of the farm allows total control over the environment in which the fish and plants are grown.

The Bedford Park warehouse is the first aquaponic farm in the United States to receive organic certification from the USDA and also the largest indoor facility in the country.

“This is a major milestone for the emergence of indoor, urban farming,” says Hardej.

“We have successfully developed the technology and process to grow indoors in an entirely organic way.”

The production process does not involve any use of pesticides, chemicals, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics or hormones. Carrying the label of USDA organic also means the use of irradiation, genetic engineering, and irradiation of sewage sludge is prohibited.

The plants grow vertically on six shelves from floor to ceiling, tended to by employees on lifts. Vertical farming allows the company to cover nearly 3.5 acres of growing space.

Like other indoor urban farms, there are plenty of environmental benefits. There is no need to run heavy farm equipment and the produce does not need to be shipped long distances, conserving precious fossil fuels.

FarmedHere employs local workers to reduce transport requirements. Local youths in the Windy City Harvest urban agricultural training program also get the opportunity to work on the farm.

The company has plans for continued expansion and its success goes to show that as urban areas become more dense, there are benefits to farming upward rather than outward.

 Here is the hope that they can make a user friendly tool~Interested to see if some urban myths perpetuated by grain fed Tilapia and tested bad fats in studies to be unhealthy compared to other species grown on a natural diet.Some omnivores(vegetarian small insects) like Silver /Jade Perch have the worlds highest Omega3 healthy oil.Because of the ease of growing a rubbish fish that survives in crowded poor quality water conditions some Aquaponics growers persist in ignoring/ questioning the" Study" denial of inconvenient facts.They would sell it as "healthy fish" even if it were grown in a sewage drain as some Chinese product might as well be, it is fed faeces(shit) from farm animals.A Southeast Asian practice not to blame just China ,polyculture poultry pens above ponds pigs etc is wide spread as are health problems.The race to the bottom is not the way...Value for money IS  quality assured. A fresh clean green product involves rethinking the best produce you can grow, like heritage tomatoes that taste nice.Excess can be dried stored in olive oil or air tight containers.

The Future of Food

There is a food revolution happening in America today. People are seeking out farmers' markets, organic produce and good restaurants. At the same time, our food supply is increasingly controlled by multi-national corporations. Over the past 10 years, with the advent of genetic engineering and the massive expansion of pesticide companies, like Monsanto, into the seed business, the very nature of our food system has radically changed with potentially disastrous effects on our food security. Patenting of life is now permitted, no labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMO's) in food is required, research is conducted on these issues by universities beholden to the "agri-corps" who fund them, and the major regulatory agencies are run by former execs from these very companies. All the while, the average citizens remain blissfully unaware that they are eating GMO food and supporting the aggressive "corporatization' of their food sources. In fascinating and accessible terms, 'The Future of Food' illuminates the major issues ultimately affecting us all -- some surreal, some futuristic, many frightening. Yet, 'The Future of Food' is a hopeful film, featuring insightful and moving interviews with farmers, agriculture and business experts and policymakers. It sees a future in which an informed consumer can join the revolution by demanding natural, healthy food sources that insure environmental integrity.

UNITED STATES: Greenpeace releases 2013 sustainable supermarket list

UNITED STATES: Greenpeace releases 2013 sustainable supermarket list | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Greenpeace has released its 2013 Carting Away the Oceans (CATO) report, which ranks American supermarkets on their sustainable seafood policies.

 

In previous years only Safeway and Whole Foods have earned the ‘green rating’, but this year Trader Joe’s joins them on the green list.

 

Greenpeace has also praised Walmart for introducing both fish aggregating device (FAD)-free skipjack and pole-and-line albacore in more than 3,000 stores across the country.

 

The CATO report gives each supermarket a score of 0-10, based on a variety of factors, including the sale of ‘red list’ seafood, engagement with conservation initiatives, transparency of supply, and the establishment of cohesive internal policies.

 

Wegmans, SUPERVALU and Trader Joe’s have also taken strong stands to protect the delicate Zhemchug and Pribilof Canyons of the Bering Sea, home to the billion dollar pollock industry. The report also showcases other key issues facing the seafood industry, such as a need for more transparency at point-of-sale and a growing groundswell of opposition to genetically modified salmon, a product that numerous major retailers have already pledged not to sell.

 

“It’s hard to believe that brands like Kroger, Publix & BI-LO are continuing to sell tuna that’s sourced using destructive fishing methods, and sell red list species that are struggling for survival,” said Casson Trenor, Greenpeace Senior Markets Campaigner. “This seems so far out of step with consumer preferences, which have encouraged most grocery retailers to offer more sustainable seafood options.”

Woman Rejects Chemo, Overcomes Ovarian Cancer With Nutrition ("Believe it or not?" - I do!)

Woman Rejects Chemo, Overcomes Ovarian Cancer With Nutrition ("Believe it or not?" - I do!) | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
Evita Ramparte was diagnosed with a serious case of ovarian cancer, but she rejected chemo and radiation and cured her cancer through nutrition instead.

Instead, Evita opted to use an approach centered around nutrition and lifestyle — one that she says ultimately ended up curing her cancer that doctors said could not truly be cured. She visited an alternative health professional, and began a regiment of Gerson-styled juicing. Radically altering her diet from her usual processed food intake of pizza and doughnuts into freshly made juice from her own home, she also began to realize what it’s like to actually feel healthy and happy.

Evita even remembers how the juicing allowed her to remove around 16 or so stones from her gallbladder, stones that are made up of toxic materials that sit within your body and in many cases lead to gallbladder removal surgeries once the mainstream medical establishment becomes involved. Eventually, Evita’s new lifestyle led to a whole new take on life, one that she says revealed her ‘true beauty’ that she had never known. Looking physically healthier all around from healthy fat loss and rejuvenated skin health, Evita also is experiencing the mental benefits of a healthier lifestyle.
