FOOD PRODUCTION IN THE FUTURE: how Aquaponics and small scale gardening can help to insure sustainable supply

In the future, Aquaponics systems to grow food, as well as new Gardening practices, new Farming or Homesteading techniques will have to be used to take the pressure of the environment. As more and more people will inhabit the planet, food production will have to increase. Commercial, large scale Farming, will stretch the resources of the planet to its limits. However, by using Aquaponics, or other small scale production methods, this could be avoided. If a large section of the population is growing their own plants, we will not only ease the strain on the environment, but at the same time life a organic, healthier lifestyle. If you love gardening, farming, planting trees, or care for the environment in general, take a look at what you can do right now, to help the planet. You only need a small space in your kitchen, patio, or garage, to grow your own Herbs. Try it and bring nature into your home. As always, enjoy the post, and don't forget to share it before you leave (share buttons below). Thank you.


Chinampas Imagine growing vegetables on rafts in a backyard pond. You won’t need to water, weed, or fertilize plants when water is your growing medium. Because a pond will stay cooler than soil, you can harvest cool-weather crops, such as lettuce, for a much longer period.

Elevate your gardens to waist high level for convenience and easy access. Elevated gardens are easy on your back and knees and are perfect for the patio, balcony, deck or any area where a bit of planting space is desired.

ECO FRIENDLY, BIODIVERSITY, GARDENING, COMPOSTING, FARMING ... Fighting Climate Change With Food Scraps: Why Composting Is Easier Than Ever - Vogue ... https://www.scientificamerican.com

CLIMATE CHANGE has become the top threat to our planet and its BIODIVERSITY. We all know, that biodiversity is the cornerstone, that keeps ecosystems balanced and healthy. At the same time, diversity alone can only keep the balance, and it needs help to do so. By keeping our soils fertilized with natural composts, we can do our part to help.

Composting nowadays is easier than ever. We don't need to rely on any chemicals at all. Humans produce enough organic food waste, to produce all the fertilizers we need. The future of Gardening, farming and agriculture, will depend on the wise use of natural food composting, to keep our soils healthy. In places were the soil is hopelessly contaminated, AQUACULTURE/ AQUAPONICS, is the right solution to produce food without having to plant into contaminated soil.

This two articles take a closer look at those problems. If you want some more information on AQUAPONICS, please feel free to look around the site. You will find all the resources you need. As always, please share this post before you leave. Thank you very much for your support. Enjoy.



Fighting Climate Change With Food Scraps: Why Composting Is Easier Than Ever - Vogue



In the ongoing quest towards living more sustainably, we often end up building individual pyramids towards a more harmonious-with-nature lifestyle. For some, the pinnacle might mean launching an informational campaign about the environmental hazards of plastic straws. For others, it could sprout as a set of community gardens, or installing solar panels to capture that straight-from-the-sun energy. 



CLIMATE CHANGE IS BECOMING A TOP THREAT


Climate Change Is Becoming a Top Threat to Biodiversity

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/climate-change-is-becoming-a-top-threat-to-biodiversity/

Climate change, alongside factors like land degradation and habitat loss, is emerging as a top threat to wildlife around the globe, the reports suggest. In Africa, it could cause some animals to decline by as much as 50 percent by the end of the century, and up to 90 percent of coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean may bleach or degrade by the year 2050.





Modern aquaponics is technologically advanced and is an efficient and effective way of producing natural food. Fishes are reared in large tanks, and the plants are nurtured hydroponically. They are implanted in beds with a little gravel or clay, and their roots hang down into the water.

AQUAPONICS, GARDENING, FARMING, BIODIVERSITY a global conflict: agricultural production vs. biodiversity -- Sources: ScienceDaily ... www.nrdc.org/onearth

If you are a gardener, farmer, love fish and trees, anything about nature, and also care for the environment, this articles are for you. Biodiversity is the key to hold eco systems together. Check at the bottom of the article, you can bring all of it into your home and have nature living with you. And as always, please share this post. Enjoy. Thank you for your support.




A global conflict: agricultural production vs. biodiversity -- ScienceDaily



increasing agricultural production usually leads to various negative side effects in agricultural landscapes, such as local decline in wildlife and loss of ecosystem functions. But what would happen if agricultural growth would be focused on areas of the world where only a few animal species would be affected?


https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/new-study-first-demonstrate-biodiversity-inoculates-against-extinction

Biodiversity has long been touted as important for staving off extinction. The more kinds of critters you have, in other words, the less likely any one of them—or a whole bunch of them—will disappear forever.

BIODIVERSITY, GARDENING, FARMING, ENVIRONMENT ... Losing Biodiversity Could Lead to "Extinction Cascades" , Big future for urban farming... sources: www.wired.com, https://futurism.com

Everything in nature is connected. If you are into GARDENING, FARMING, TREES, FLOWERS or the environment in general, Biodiversity is what makes eco systems work. Those are two very interesting articles, touching on two very important issues. As always, enjoy, and don't forget to share this post (share buttons below) before you leave. Thank you for your support.



Losing Biodiversity Could Lead to "Extinction Cascades"



New research shows that a loss of biodiversity puts the entire ecosystem at risk of a domino effect, where a single extinction could cause countless others.


BIG DATA SUGGESTS BIG POTENTIAL FOR URBAN FARMING



Grown in hydroponic greenhouses on the rooftops of buildings in New York and Chicago, the greens are shipped to nearby stores and restaurants within hours of being harvested.
