    Watch the next episode about San Francisco becoming a zero waste city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3OA1s8-SI&list=UUJsSEDFFnMFvW9JWU6XUn0Q As urban populations continue to rise, innovators are looking beyond traditional farming as a way to feed everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources.

  • Grain for the People | Mexico's Timeless Maize

    In Michoacán, you are never far from maize. It's in the fields where men labor. It's in the meals women prepare for their families, and part of every celebration. It's in the history, the stories, the imagination. "This corn has had a natural evolution," says grower Miguel Uribe. "It has been guided and grown together with a tribe of people for as long as the river has flowed and the grass has grown green. And so the product that you have is not a product that's developed for the sake of money, it's a product that's been naturally developed, and that means nutrition and it also means flavor."

    Twenty years ago, Stefan Sobkowiak bought a commercial apple orchard with the intention of converting it to an organic orchard. He did just that, but eventually understood the limitations of the organic model originating from monoculture. He then decided to tear out most of the trees and replant in a way that would maximize biodiversity and yield while minimizing the amount of maintenance required. Inspired by permaculture principles, the orchard now counts over 100 cultivars of apples, plus several types of plums, pears, cherries, and countless other fruits and vegetables.

And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.

World’s Biggest Marijuana Plantation was found in Mexico in the Baja California desert.

Subscribe for more videos: https://goo.gl/8yXRqa Check out the “7 Banned Candies Around the World” video here: https://youtu.be/nTRv3AKLiWA Hidden under black screen-cloth netting in the middle of the remote areas of the Baja California desert, about 200 miles, or 320 km south of San Diego and the US border, near the town of San Quintin, was were Mexican soldiers discovered in 2011 the largest marijuana plantation in the country’s history, and possibly in the world. The plantation stretched over more than 300 acres or 120 hectares, which is more than 168 times larger than the soccer field in Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium. The army general Alfonso Duarte said “this is the biggest marijuana plantation we have found in the country” and told that the screening, which is often used by regular farmers to protect crops from too much sun or heat, made it difficult to smell what was growing underneath. Because it was only when soldiers on the ground reached the isolated desert area that they found thousands of pot plants as high as 2.5 meters tall or almost 8 feet, while the average height of the plants were about 1.5 meters or about 5.5 feet tall. General Durante said that there were approximately 60 people working on the farm, but that they all fled when they saw military personnel approaching. It’s estimated that the huge farm, that looks like a huge asphalt area from the air, could have harvested around 120 tons of marijuana that would be worth around 160 million dollars! Along with installed toilet facilities for the workers, some wooden outbuildings build for the people caring for the plants, which btw are dwarfed by the size of the crop, the plantation had a sophisticated water pipe and irrigation system that was fed by two wells in able to support the growth of the plants. It’s still unsure of who or which cartel stood behind this massive plantation, but it’s believed that it could have belonged to recently captured Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and his Sinaloa cartel, as they were known to operate territory in the area of where this plantation was found. Mexican military eventually destroyed the whole field by burning the plants, a process which took them a whole week.

SOUNDBITE (English) Orin Smith, President of Starbuck's Coffee Co.: "Our dependence upon those farmers who produce very high quality coffee because we made a pact with our customer that we will provide them with very high quality coffee but we will charge a very high price. This is important for us but it is equally important for the farmers, because that high price enables us to pay the farmers the highest price for their coffees of any buyer in the world." 7. Reporters 8. Close up of photographer 9. Wide of signing of pact 10. Mario Monroy looking at organic and fair trade coffees in shop 11.SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Mario Monroy, Mexican Fair Trade campaigner "There is a serious problem here. Starbucks says it buys its coffee for a fair price but it's a lie. Because while it might well pay more than the so-called fair price, it (Starbucks) doesn't actually know who the money is going to. And if you want to pay a fair price, it has to also mean that you are concerned about who the money goes to and making sure the money goes straight to the coffee-growers." 12. Various of Mexican organic coffee products 13. Wide of press conference STORYLINE: The coffee giant, Starbucks, is hoping a deal with Latin American coffee growers will give them a better price for their beans while giving latte lovers a better cup of coffee. Starbucks Coffee Co. is joining the US development agency, USAID and environmental conservationists, Conservation International in an alliance to help ensure the supply of high quality coffee from Latin America. They signed the deal in Mexico City on Monday. Under the agreement, Starbucks will pay higher prices to "preferred providers" - suppliers that can demonstrate that money gets to farmers without being diverted. They will also have to comply with environmental practices outlined by Conservation International, and meet humanitarian standards of the home country or international authorities. Starbucks President and CEO Orin Smith said the alliance is partly his company's effort to pass on the "high price" of a cup of coffee to farmers. Starbucks, which opened its first store in Mexico in 2002, has expressed concern about the supply of top-grade coffee as it moves forward with long-range plans to open 25,000 stores worldwide. The agreement reflects the growing power of the premium coffee market and efforts to exploit it for the benefit of small farmers. Many of those farmers had their livelihoods devastated by a crisis in overall coffee prices, which reached an inflation-adjusted 100-year low in 2002. Fair trade campaigners, however, say they are concerned that the money will not actually filter down to the small producers. Over-cultivation and stagnant demand set the conditions for the crisis, according to USAID, which is helping small and medium-sized producers better process, grade and market their coffee. Fair trade campaigners, however, have concerns about whether the small producers will actually end up getting the "fair price" that is promised. Mexico is the world's fifth-largest coffee producer, but premium coffee shops have only started to appear in the past decade, led by local chains. The new Starbucks have been wildly popular in Mexico City's chic neighbourhoods. USAID, which receives overall foreign policy guidance from US Secretary of State Colin Powell's office, has invested more than US 57 million dollars in coffee projects, including US 35 million dollars in Latin America.

A tour of Purple Pear Farm in New South Wales, Australia, a permaculture and biodynamic farm with rotating tractor domes over mandala garden beds, pigs, chooks and some great philosophy. Mark and Kate run a small CSA (community supported agriculture) offering vege boxes to their local community. They dream not of growing ever bigger and bigger and controlling the market for veggies in their region, but rather of staying small and supporting other vegetable growers to initiate similar projects, or even to join theirs, so that everyone in the community is eating well and living well. Now there’s a vision to be inspired by!
