In rural and suburban areas I love the idea of turning lawns into gardens and I praise guerrilla farmers in cities. In residences I think someday all homes will be equipped with food stations that add ever more to the possibility of sustaining a good life on this good planet:
And even in our future galactic travels plants are the answer!
Anyone can see the urgency that should motivate industrial and architectural shifts to producing good food for the generations to come.
|Advocates of 'vertical farming' say growing crops in urban high-rises will eventually be both greener and cheaper|
This sustainable plant based food model might include floating barges at every port filled with all sorts of grains, legumes and leaf-foods... Grocery stores might have facilities on the roof that grow vegetables of all varieties... It would be processed on the spot and the "food miles" would be the elevator that moves the goods to the ground floor for sale and local distribution. The chaff and waste would be recycled to supply energy for the building and nutrients for the next growing crop. I mean really! Can you just envision what we could do if we shifted our mindset to what's healthier for us any way? (And also what's so much kinder to others too).
So now - You may roll your eyes as I have, at the ludicrous, daft, nonsense the meat industry shows in it's attempt to take these viable, modern methods of feeding humans to ironically --- Feed cows instead! :(
Greenhouse feeds gaining ground in livestock industry.
The Earth, the inhabitants and I thank you for consuming in an ethical, vegan manner.
