Food, Technology and Biodiversity

A Historian’s Take on Food and Food Politics...

 

This brief article highlights that as much as technology has changed food production, there this is much more that has remained the same.  Of the thousands of plants on Earth, 11 account for most of what we eat (corn, rice, wheat, cassava, potatoes, sorghum, millet, beans, barley rye and oats) .  Not surprisingly, those 11 plants are the same that have been cultivated by humans for thousands of years--makes you think that early humans, while not technologically advanced, were constantly conducting agricultural experiments and found many of the best animal and plant resources for human consumption.  This is one reason losing local indigenous knowledge about cultural ecology and the species' genetic diversity would be a great loss for humanity.

Rooftop Farms and the Environment

Rooftop Farms and the Environment | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

“the urban landscape is now larger than the rural landscape. I was looking at how much wasted rooftop space there is across the world…and it seemed crazy not to use that wasted space to be more sustainable and grow food. It motivated me to find a solution for rooftops…and alternative ways of producing food that’s more local.” Alan Joaquin, Founder of FarmRoof®
