When we think of farms and fresh vegetables we think of the huge plots in the outskirts of the cities. However, Farm One in New York City has revolutionized the concept of farming completely through scientific research and innovation. They made it possible for passionate chefs and restaurants across the city to get access to healthy and fresh farm produce without any delay by creating a 1500 square feet farm set up in the basement of a building within the city itself.

They grow around 500 different types of plants, keeping in mind the special demands of the chefs. Since the set up is made by them, they have full control over the optimum environment the plants need to grow properly and also the nutrients they need. They handle all the parameters in way that would give them the right plants with the exact features like size, colour and shape which are demanded by the customers.

The seeds are planted in recycled coconut husks that allows them to derive nutrients as well as space to grow roots. Also, these plants are placed in raft like structures over water which helps the roots to suck in the moisture and grow correctly.

Moreover vertical farms like these use a lot less water compared to traditional ones since the system is created to recycle the water. They don’t use pesticides and instead allow beneficial insects like ladybugs to feed on the plants. Lack of pesticide also allows people to eat the plants directly with no need of cleaning them.

Rob Laing, the creator of Farm.One, got the inspiration for a farm like this in 2015. He was a culinary student and during those days he came across several exotic plants and vegetables that are difficult to find and so it motivated him to create a healthy set up like this to make these ingredients available to all. The products are sold on the day of their harvest, which are then delivered through subway or bikes as fast as possible. Most of their customers are half an hour away from the outlet.

All these ingredients are grown based on the criteria sent in by the chefs like the leaf shape and size which Farm.One produces in batches for them. These chefs are very impressed with this system as it allows them to create the best dish with the healthiest ingredients. Earlier these chefs had to order stuff from California or Mexico which needed to be packaged carefully to keep them fresh. These extra packaging measures created more waste. Farm.One’s unique technique of production has reduced expenses on both sides.

Having witnessed such a great success of his venture, Laing wishes to expand this business to several other major cities and is of the opinion that their resourceful and technologically advanced system can be utilised in different ways. Although they produce unique plants, the system makes them less expensive and he hopes his innovation will lead to more farming ventures in cities in the future.

March Against Monsanto 2018 Global Protests – Be There This Weekend (May 19th) – May 17, 2018

March Against Monsanto 2018 Global Protests – Be There This Weekend

WORLDWIDE– Hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens will hit the streets May 19th, 2018 for the 7th international March Against Monsanto grassroots Campaign.

The global events will take place in hundreds of cities on six continents with the objective to further educate and raise awareness about Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds and the increasingly toxic food supply, as well as its merger with the German pesticide, GMO and pharmaceutical giant Bayer.

One of the focal points of this year’s March will be the Bayer merger, which was recently approved by U.S. antitrust regulators despite widespread concerns from civil organizations, family farmers, and environmental scientists. The merger is expected to create a new company that will control more than a quarter of the world’s seeds and pesticides, consolidating unprecedented power over our food system into the hands of one foreign-based multi-national corporation.

 

A recent poll conducted by two former attorneys from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Divison found that over 93% of farmers are concerned about the Monsanto-Bayer merger, and over 82% are “very concerned.” Their top three concerns are increased market dominance to push additional products, excessive control over farmers’ data, and increased pressure to become reliant on chemical based farming practices.

Another focus of this year’s March will be on glyphosate, the controversial active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup that was declared a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015. After months of legal battles, the state of California recently won the right to force Monsanto to place a cancer warning label on its products, in accordance with the IARC’s previous ruling. Yet this herbicide is still being sprayed in massive amounts and has been detected in air and rain samples, the breast milk of nursing mothers, childhood vaccines, prenatal vitamins, and baby formula, even as over 2,400 cancer related lawsuits have been filed against the St. Louis, Missouri based company.

Glyphosate use has increased 16-fold since the mid-1990s according to U.S. Geological Survey Data.

“Monsanto’s glyphosate has contaminated every facet of our lives. The cancer-causing herbicide has been detected in the air we breathe and many of the organic foods we eat. Our children are directly targeted as is evidenced by the discovery of glyphosate in vaccines, breast milk, and baby formulas. We must rise up and stop this toxic nightmare or we will see generations of overwhelming sickness and premature death like never before,” said Tami Canal, the founder of March Against Monsanto.

In addition to pesticides and the Bayer merger, the March will also focus on Monsanto’s recent $125 million investment in CRISPR, the controversial genetic modification technique that allows scientists to “play God” by editing our favorite food crops quicker and easier in the lab than ever before.

Because of this new technology, several novel foods are being created including a genetically engineered apple that doesn’t turn brown, genetically engineered potatoes, and more. Some worry that CRISPR GMO foods may become the new standard on grocery store shelves.

In keeping with past protocol, these foods won’t be labeled, and haven’t been independently studied for their long-term health effects on humans.

March Against Monsanto rallies will occur May 19th with the first protests happening in New Zealand and Australia to kick off the global events. Extensive protesting will happen across the world and related online coverage can be found on social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram by using the hashtags #marchMay19 and #MarchAgainstMonsanto (#MAM).
