Restoring the Urban Sea by Farming It

Restoring the Urban Sea by Farming It | Urban Farming and More - Food in the City by Youmanitas.nl | Scoop.it
With 91% of the seafood that we eat in this country imported from foreign waters there is increased interest in restoring local watersheds to full productivity.
Gino Smit's insight:

Aquaculture has rightly earned a reputation for growing low quality seafood at the expense of the environment, but a new form of ocean-friendly farming has emerged right here in Long Island Sound. These small-scale vertical farms — some of the first in the country — are designed to grow multiple species of seaweed and shellfish, have small footprints and provide an array of environmental benefits. Picture them as three-dimensional gardens, where seaweed, mussels and scallops grow at the top of the water column, stacked above oysters and clams

Urban Farming Forum Report

Urban Farming Forum Report | Urban Farming and More - Food in the City by Youmanitas.nl | Scoop.it
Gino Smit's insight:

The first Urban Farming Forum, which took place in 2011, invited food security advocates, policy makers, and urban farmers alike to engage in vibrant discourse around urban farming, as well as discuss ways in which Vancouver’s Greenest City goals could be met in the context of urban farming policy. The 2012 installment, at the HiVE in Vancouver, was centered around urban farmers specifically to allow for a more concerted effort at data collection and discussion most relevant to the farmers themselves as part of a year long research project into urban farming practices in Metro Vancouver.

Urban farming practices developed in France in 1850 still are used in cities today | MSU Extension

Many people believe the practice of growing vegetables in hoop houses in urban locations is a new phenomenon. History, however, tells us otherwise. The French were feeding residents of Paris from year-round urban gardens more than 150 years ago.

Gino Smit's insight:

In 2013 gaat het Wereldpodium maar liefst vijftien keer aan de slag op scholen. Vijftien keer voeren we het programma Wereldjournalisten uit, en ditmaal is het thema GROW.

Novalis College, EindhovenOdulphuslyceum, TilburgBeatrix College, TilburgSint Janslyceum, Den BoschKoning Willem I College, Den BoschMaurick College, VughtCobbenhagen Lyceum, TilburgROC, Tilburg

(volg de scholen via de Wereldjournalisten op Facebook)

GROW gaat over voedsel. Over de vraag: hoe we in 2050 bijna 9 miljard mensen op onze planeet van genoeg eten kunnen voorzien. Zelfs vandaag, met een wereldbevolking van 7 miljard mensen, gaat het al fout. Éen op de zeven mensen gaat met honger naar bed.
