Can you imagine producing 1 million pounds of food on just 3 acres of land? Well it is possible and the man behind this outstanding project is Will Allen of Growing Power. He has designed an aquaponics growing system covering a 3 acre farm that produces a massive amount of food.
Growing Power has clearly found a perfect way to produce this huge amount of food. Those 3 acres of land are all presented as green houses and they wisely use all the vertical space. They have 10,000 fish, 300-500 yards of worm compost and they grow food all year using heat from compost piles.
It is a shame the whole world is not following this man’s dream to provide equal access to healthy, high-quality, safe and affordable food for people in all communities. All that is needed is to build sustainable food systems that are equitable and ecologically sound.
