Havana Homegrown: Inside Cuba's Urban Agriculture Revolution This video from the nonprofit group KGI ( ) looks at the urban agriculture revolution in Havana, Cuba and its origins. Cuba is not only an island nation in terms of its geography, but also its economy and politics as a result of the US embargo and the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba's largest source of trade and aid until the Berlin Wall fell in 1991. Cut off from the world's pipeline of food, oil, chemical pesticides and fertilizers, Cuba embarked upon an ambitious program to grow as much of its own organic food as possible in the 1990s during what was known as the "special period." This short video produced by the nonprofit group Kitchen Gardeners International (KGI) peeks into Havana's urban farms and gardens to see what lessons they have to offer other cities working to move toward sustainable food security. For more information on other homegrown solutions around the world, please see KGI's website here

North Dakota's agriculture commissioner backs hemp From CNN -Fast-growing hemp used for food, paper, textiles and car parts -Hemp and marijuana have tetrahydrocannabinol, but the level in hemp is lower -North Dakota is one of seven states that have OK'd production or research -The DEA will not approve permits for two farmers in that state State official backs hemp North Dakota's agriculture commissioner believes the US should get into the business of producing hemp products. Market ready for hemp? The president of Hemp Oil Canada explains why there is a worldwide market for hemp products. What Is It Good For? Hemp's handiness can be traced back hundreds of years. Here are a few examples of its myriad applications: • Paper -- The plant's long, strong fibers make it an alternative to timber for paper. The Declaration of Independence and first Gutenberg Bibles were drafted on hemp. • Construction -- Hemp's woody core makes a good source of boards for construction materials. • Auto parts -- The plant's fiber can be crafted into a composite that is used for interior automobile parts typically made of fiberglass or other materials. • Textiles -- For centuries, hemp fibers have been used for fabrics, both fine and coarse. • Body and health care products -- Oil from the seeds is used in lotions, balms and cosmetics. • Food -- The seeds and oil are high in protein and essential fatty acids and are used in a variety of edibles. • Ethanol -- Though the technology is embryonic at best, hemp's high cellulose content makes it a good ...
Agriculture: Downsizing The Federal Government Agriculture is easily the most distorted sector, with high tariffs and, in developed countries at least, large amounts of government subsidies through price supports and direct payments. On the other hand, developing countries, who have a comparative advantage in these products, cannot afford to subsidize their agriculture sector and face prohibitive tariffs for their products abroad. The powerful agriculture lobby groups, particularly in the large developed countries, make reform politically difficult. Chris Edwards, Sallie James and Dan Ikenson discuss the inequities of American farm policies. This video was produced by Caleb Brown ( ) and Austin Bragg ( ).

Hazardous Child Labour in Agriculture Across the world 218 million children, as young as five and six, are engaged in child labour. Seventy per cent, over 150 million work in agriculture. While the good news is that child labour has declined by eleven per cent in the last four years, much more needs to be done in agriculture. The ILO and its social partners from member governments, and employers and workers organizations have committed themselves to eliminating the worst forms of child labour by 2016, including hazardous child labour in agriculture.

Fred Kirschenmann: The Future of Agriculture— Part 2 For more sustainable living videos, stories and information, visit Fred Kirschenmann, a long-time leader in the sustainable agriculture movement, Distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, and a third-generation farmer (an organic farmer himself), completes his thoughtful reflections upon the future of agriculture from his talk at the Organicology conference in Portland, Oregon.
Fred Kirschenmann: The Future of Agriculture-Part 1 Visit us on the web for more video stories, and information: Cooking Up a Story (). Fred Kirschenmann steadfastly warns us, conventional agriculture, and its heavy dependence upon fossil fuels, and irrigated water, simply will not continue to offer a viable means for feeding the world. We have been drawing upon natures reserves of stored energy (hydrocarbons) and water resources at unsustainable rates, and those finite resources are diminishing rapidly; technology alone, will not provide substitute solutions. The argument that conventional agriculture (modern industrial farming) is necessary in order to meet the needs of a growing global population, simply ignores the realities of the elephants in the room. Sustainability, with an emphasis upon the concept of resiliency, and a renewed respect for maintaining the fertility (quality) of the soil, is to Kirschenmann now, the foundation of a new food system toward creating a food revolution.

Biospharms - Sustainable Agriculture Mini Farming A Biospharm is a sustainable agriculture mini farm capable of sustaining a family through solar power, rain water cisterns, complimentary animal ecosystems, small herds, fruit trees, and vegetable gardening. The name is a combination of biosphere and farm. The "ph" was kept, because this is not the kind of large scale farming that most people think of. It's small scale agriculture for personal consumption, not for comercial purposes. Biospharm communities are under construction right now, and more videos will be coming soon. We've designed the entire community concept to be affordable for literally just about anyone. Subscribe to this chanel to keep up to date on the latest developments. We'll be explaining the concepts and appropriate technologies in detail shortly. PM us if you think you may be a pharmer at heart, or if you have questions about any of the material we cover. We'd love to hear from you.

Sustainable urban agriculture hydroponic vegetable greenhouse.dv This video shows the Urban Food Farm from It's a complete greenhouse kit system with hydroponics, irrigation, soil-less growing and a very efficient space layout to grow organic vegetables and herbs year round. The greenhouse floor plant is 8x12. Normally the greenhouse walls are clear polycarbonate but since it's been raining they are covered in condensation. We tried to show the inside of the greenhouse design and closeup of all the vegetable plants. Compare to the other videos taken 2 weeks and 3 weeks prior, the vegetable and herb plants grow fast. This video is from 12 it's hard to believe it's December, the plants are growing as if it was March. This video shows a close look of the tomato plants, all the herb plants like chives, basil, cilantro, mint and a few others, there are also cucumber, zucchini, squash, lettuce, micro greens and strawberry plants. Some of the plants we planted from seed on week 2 of the project and others like the older tomato and cucumber plants were brought from an older version of this vegetable hydrofarm. All of the vegetables grown are organic from hybrid seed. The greenhouse layout plan in this 8x12 hobby greenhouse offers 144 foot of hydroponic soil-less growing all done in coco coir.The combination of the greenhouse plan, the coco and the clear plastic walls allows this hydrofarm to grow as much as 6x more than the same space planted in the ground. The amount of work is also considerably less thanks to automated ...
Animal Agriculture - The Facts crisis2 ANIMAL AGRICULTURE: THE FACTS VOICE: In 2006, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) had estimated that raising animals for meat and dairy was responsible for 18% of global warming; more than all the worlds transportation put together. However, it is becoming increasingly clear to scientists that the livestock industry is playing a more significant role. Dr. Rajendra Pachauri Chair of United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, VEGETARIAN (M): Ive received a number of emails from people that I respect saying that the 18% figure is an underestimate; its a low estimate and in actual fact its much higher. Dr. T. Colin Campbell Renowned nutrition researcher, Cornell University, USA, VEGAN (M): I just had some information just recently, that the new figures now indicate that at least half of the greenhouse gases that are up there now, not that 15 or 20%, at least half and maybe considerably more are due to livestock production. VOICE: Greenhouse gasses are emitted during virtually every step of the meat producing process, including the three major greenhouse gasses: carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, & methane. However, what is unaccounted for is the fact that instead of the 23 times figure used in most reports, including that of the United Nations, methane is actually 72-100 times more potent than CO2 over a 20-year period.
