5 Ways to Eat Healthy Without Spending a Fortune on Food | FOODTECH | Scoop.it
The Los Angeles Times reported results from a 2013 British study, which found eating nutritious foods costs an average of $1.48 more per day than going with unhealthy stuff. While it might seem like a shopping cart full of instant noodles and 10 cans of condensed soup for $10 is the only choice, there are a number of ways you can fight back against unhealthy eating without going broke. Follow these five strategies, and you could score a leaner physique and a fatter wallet.

Revolutionary “Homefarm” Combines Retirement Homes with Eco-Friendly Vertical Farming

Revolutionary “Homefarm” Combines Retirement Homes with Eco-Friendly Vertical Farming | FOODTECH | Scoop.it
Architecture firm Spark has recently unveiled Homefarm, a health, housing and farming concept that revolutionizes urban retirement. The proposed plan would offer its residents a space for living and another for farming, allowing them to take part in the agricultural process if they wish.
Spark’s idea is an alternative to typical retirement communities and nursing homes, which can feel impersonal and sterile. Instead, they hope to make this lifestyle change an active and empowering experience. This comes at the right time, too—Singapore’s aging population, for instance, is rapidly increasing. By the year 2030, one-fifth of residents are expected to be over 65 years old. In addition, a majority of its food is imported rather than locally grown, so Homefarm will help increase production of domestic fruits and vegetables.
The curvilinear structure will wrap around a large central courtyard that’s outfitted with staggered terraces and an aquaponic vertical farming system. Having this…

[FERMES VERTICALES] Les villes du futur: Speedfarming 2050, le jeu

[FERMES VERTICALES] Les villes du futur: Speedfarming 2050, le jeu | FOODTECH | Scoop.it
Chaque semaine dans le monde, un million de personnes supplémentaires s’installent en ville. À ce rythme, 70 % des êtres humains seront urbains en 2050. Mais à quoi ressemblera la ville de demain ? Quels seront les enjeux sociétaux, politiques, économiques, et environnementaux majeurs ?

 

En 2050, 80% de la population mondiale résidera en ville. D’ici là, son nombre aura augmenté de 3 milliards, portant à 9 milliards le nombre total de bouches à nourrir. Il faudra mettre en culture 10 milliards d'hectares de terres pour répondre aux besoins mondiaux en nourriture. Alors qu’aujourd’hui 80% de la surface utilisable est déjà mise à contribution, se pose la question de la viabilité du modèle agricole actuel.

Le concept de Vertical Farming n’est pas celui de l’expansion horizontale de l’agriculture, mais celui de son expansion verticale en s’interdisant le recours à la chimie destructrice des sols propre à l’agriculture traditionnelle pour lui substituer celle de l’agriculture hors sol.

Speed Farming 2050 est un jeu de gestion d’une ferme verticale pour comprendre et sensibiliser au développement de nouvelles technologies visant à rendre durable l’habitat urbain.

L’objectif du jeu : gérer une ferme verticale et récolter suffisamment de denrées pour répondre à la demande des habitants. Le principe de base est de collecter les denrées à temps tout en gérant les ressources nécessaires à la production.

How a soil crisis caused by climate change may impact on global food production

How a soil crisis caused by climate change may impact on global food production | FOODTECH | Scoop.it
The world is facing a soil crisis that could badly hit food production, according to alarming new research.

A 17-year study into the effect of global warming on microbes – the tiny bacteria, fungi and other micro-organisms that determine soil health – reveals them to be far less adaptable to changing conditions than expected. It raises concerns the microbes will not be able to carry out essential functions, such as breaking down leaves and other organic matter in a process which converts them into nitrogen and other nutrients that plants need to grow.
