THIS VIDEO: Samuel's Rooftop DIY Home Food Garden in Brooklyn — Showcasing a series of intensive modular food growing systems that maximize space and resources, while providing higher than average yields per square foot. This is possible through the fusion of vertical systems design with a permaculture-style approach to planting food and managing its growth. There is great potential to design and create such systems on just about any type of typology, on and off the ground at any scale.
The "micro food hub" project's mission is to support and coordinate the development of subsistence urban food systems for underserved communities.
Residents in underserved communities lack access to healthy and high quality foods due to systemic issues leading to poor health and reduced quality of life. At the "micro food hub" project, we bridge social and food justice with community economic development to realize urban well-being. Food insecurity is only a symptom of many systemic issues affecting underserved communities, with issues such as poverty and historically unfavorable policies and disinvestment driving the cycle. We believe in breaking the cycle though building access to natural resources, cultivating non-exploitative cooperative community enterprises, promoting healthy food and nutrition, healing through nature and gardening, COMMUNITY economic development and opportunities.
Humanity has the potential to create climate positive sustainable communities: hyperlocal, community-managed supply chains utilizing community resources, and citizen-powered networks. In the face of COVID-19 and climate change, the need for cities and policy to rethink the conventional food system, the lack of food growing (sustainability) education in schools, and how humans could live more in balance with nature, is more vital than ever.
