Hey i know the world needs food but what have we become to allow such practices, how sustainable is our system, is there another way?... yes but lets remember corporations rule the day and for any poor person organic produce is to expensive, please watch both video's, the second one shows what can be achieved sustainably in a relativity small amount of space, considering we live in city's the food can be produced in the citys, to say we are underusing our resources is an understatement, grow space is everywhere




Milwaukee's Growing Power, a community-based urban food center, is using plants as natural water filters for raising yellow perch. Fred Binkowski, an aquaculture specialist with the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute, provides technical advice on the experimental effort.

City food sustainability



Edible City is a fun, fast-paced journey through the Local Good Food movement that's taking root in the San Francisco Bay Area, across the nation and around the world.

Introducing a diverse cast of extraordinary and eccentric characters who are challenging the paradigm of our broken food system, Edible City digs into their unique perspectives and transformative work, finding hopeful solutions to monumental problems.

Inspirational, down-to-earth and a little bit quirky, Edible City captures the spirit of a movement that's making real change and doing something truly revolutionary: growing the model for a healthy, sustainable local food system.
