New Regenerative Vertical Ocean Farming

  GreenWave's Regenerative Ocean Vertical Farming                                                         Source:  GreenWave& Bren Smith A New Green Wave to Fight Climate Change GreenWave, a sustainable undersea farming technology company founded by fisherman Bren Smith, has developed a breakthrough technology called vertical underwater farming or regenerative ocean farming.  The technique promises to be a new and prolific source of food and a new way to fight Climate Change.  It's comprised of vertical ropes that grow a variety of seaweed and shellfish.  As a fisherman, Smith has witnessed fishing stocks depleted and destroyed by Climate Change.  He is convinced that fishing has to be sustainable to save the industry.  His GreenWave model is designed to cleanly produce shellfish and seaweed, help restore ocean ecosystems, capture carbon and nitrogen from the waters and to support and sustain commercial farming.  The shellfish and seaweed provide food for consumers, fertili

Jordan Turning The Desert Green

Desert Agriculture Enabled by Seawater and Solar Power Jordan's Sustainable Solar & Seawater Farm Project Ambitious, Innovative Project Jordon has embarked on a very ambitious and innovative project to turn the desert green for farming. They have a pilot project underway in a location that's .62 miles from the Israeli border and 9.3 miles from the Red Sea. Feeding the World One of the most pressing needs facing humanity is feeding the world's growing population.  By 2050, food production needs to go up by 50% to feed the projected global population.  The problem is further complicated by the lack of good water, which is a big issue in Jordan.  Furthermore, food production totals 70% of global freshwater consumption and emits 25% of greenhouse gases.  Changes are clearly needed.  Jordan, which is the 2nd poorest water supply nation and three-quarters desert, is taking an innovative, problem solving lead. Jordan Playing to Its Strengths Jordan has plenty o

Geothermal Food Growing - Colorado Model Experiment

Could Hot Springs Be the Future of Agriculture? Pagosa Springs Geodesic Greenhouses Powered by Geothermal Energy A Grand Experiment: Geothermal, Renewable, Sustainable Farming A small Colorado town Pagosa Springs is using its hot springs to grow food for the community year round.  It's a 5 year experiment by the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership, a non-profit, volunteer organization that's pushing innovation with great potential. Geothermal Energy 24/7/365 The group is turning the world's largest and deepest geothermal hot spring into a lot more than a tourist destination.  They're using the renewable energy source that's available 24/7/365 to grow food year round for the community. Geothermal Farming Geothermal energy is energy harnessed from the earth's heat.  Geothermal farming is something new,  different and very promising.  The reason is geothermal energy is abundant in the US and could provide a renewable energy source for farming.  The Color
