  • Planting Trees to Help Protect Farming Communities in Mexico from a Changing Planet

    In the communities of Chiapas, Mexico, changes to our climate are causing longer dry seasons and shorter, more intense rainy seasons. This combination is causing pasture production to decline and more severe floods and landslides — as rainfall rushes across the dry landscape. To help fix the problem, The Nature Conservancy and partners are helping farmers plant carefully chosen trees in their pastures. The trees keep the grass from drying out as fast, and help ensure that more water can filter into the ground instead of rushing across dry earth. As a result, farmers are seeing better crop yields and are also helping make their communities more resilient to a changing climate.

Thousands of fireflies light up a magical spectacle at dusk in the mass of old-growth trees at the Piedra Canteada park, about 45 miles (75 kilometres) east of the city. For years, the vast forces of the world economy, low prices for farm products and logs, forced the farm community to cut down trees. It wasn't until 2011 that community members realised that the millions of fireflies that light up the forest between June and August could be the real draw. Visitors come from the nearby city where few have seen any significant number of fireflies. Since the sawmill opened, it has brought much needed jobs to locals that...

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.

It's the worst drought Mexico has experienced in 71 years and farming communities are being hit hard. Here in the state of Jalisco, there's been no significant rain for nearly 18 months and families are going hungry from lack of arable produce. But engineer, Sergio Rico Velasco is hopeful that his creation can save Mexican towns from extreme poverty by allowing them to minimise the effects of an increasingly unpredictable climate. It's called 'Solid Rain' and according to Velasco, it's already helping farmers across the region. Solid Rain is a polymer that comes in the form of a sugar like powder. It works by absorbing water in high quantities and retaining its humid properties for up to 40 days, so that when planted into the soil, crops can continue to grow with or without regular rainfall. Velasco says: "Solid Rain allows them (farmers) to start planting at least 3 or 4 weeks ahead of the rainy season. When the rains come, whatever humidity has been consumed is replenished. If the rains stop for some time, the Solid Rain that's in the root, allows for the plant's growth to continue without the plant suffering stress due to lack of water." He explains: "Generally, plants begin to grow, and if it doesn't rain in a short period of time, the plant dies because the humidity is too little for its level of resistance. With this technology, which provides a reserve of humidity to the root, the plant can not only deal with the drought, but it can even continue growing." Aguahedionda - a small farming village in the mountains of Autlan in Jalisco - has been experimenting with Solid Rain for several years and farmers here say the benefits are evident. Eusebio Martinez says: "We see the trees which were planted some six years ago using Solid Rain. Not too long ago there were some trees that died, and we were digging the ground to plant new ones and we could see the Solid Rain was still working." According to Velasco, traditional irrigation systems lose an estimated 80 percent of liquid due to filtering through the soil. Filtering is even more pronounced in soil that has been eroded due to poor farming practices - a common problem in Mexico where farmers traditionally burn their fields in order to prepare them for the season. The lack of absorption is particularly problematic during times of drought, when rainfall is sporadic at best. By preventing the water from filtering through the soil, Solid Rain ensures that the benefits of the water are maximised by maintaining a constant level of humidity on the plants' roots. In order for Solid Rain to be effective communities first need to develop methods to collect and store rain water. That reserve is then used to make Solid Rain. Roughly 1 kilo (2.2lbs) of the dry polymer is enough to solidify 500 litres (132 US gallons) of water. The Solid Rain is worked in its gelatinous solid form into the soil where the seeds are to be planted. The highly absorbent polymer can also be planted in its dry form where eventual rainfall will hydrate it. The area where it is planted is covered with organic material to prevent as much evaporation of the water as possible. Velasco says the humidity created by the product does not alter the PH of the water and therefore does not affect the chemical makeup of the crops.

On a prosperous path from Mexican fields to U.S. tables, a boom in farm exports has enriched growers and retailers and benefited consumers. But for thousands of agricultural workers south of the border, it is a life of exploitation and hardship.

Los Angeles Times reporter Richard Marosi and photojournalist Don Bartletti explain what it took to get access to places that have long escaped outside scrutiny. To report the "Product of Mexico" series, Marosi and Bartletti traveled across nine Mexican states, observing conditions and interviewing workers at some of the mega-farms that have powered the country's agricultural export boom. "The growing conditions are the best in the world for the food that’s exported to us," said Bartletti. "But the living conditions [of] the people who are picking it, growing it, planting it, watering it? Are like, the worst I’ve ever seen."

Mexican farmers use fireflies to save forest

(26 Jul 2016) In the Mexican village of Nanacamilpa, tiny fireflies are helping save the towering pine trees on the outskirts of the sprawling megalopolis of Mexico City. Thousands of fireflies light up a magical spectacle at dusk in the mass of old-growth trees at the Piedra Canteada park, about 45 miles (75 kilometres) east of the city. For years, the vast forces of the world economy, low prices for farm products and logs, forced the farm community to cut down trees. It wasn't until 2011 that community members realised that the millions of fireflies that light up the forest between June and August could be the real draw. Visitors come from the nearby city where few have seen any significant number of fireflies. Since the sawmill opened, it has brought much needed jobs to locals that would otherwise only have revenue for the short three-month period of firefly season. The sawmill allows them to continue to provide jobs for the community for the rest of the year while also using their own resources.

Watch and read more here about The Future of Farming: Hydroponic Tomatoes: bit.ly/1zGVxT5 Rows of healthy hydroponic tomatoes are nurtured and grown in a high-tech greenhouse facility in Camarillo, California. Houweling's Tomatoes is a family-owned operation dedicated to reducing its environmental footprint, one nutrient-rich tomato at a time. The tomatoes at this facility are fed nitrogen, potassium, and other elements like iron and zinc to give it that extra kick. Plants sink their roots in coconut fibers, aiding in the growth of vines that can reach approximately a foot a week. Since the facility is completely enclosed, there are no weeds, no fungus, or need for any pesticides or fungicides. Advanced computer technology controls the humidity and carbon dioxide levels, and solar panels provide the facility with total energy independence. Reporter Val Zavala chats with tomato growers for a rare look inside the one-of-a-kind greenhouse facility in Southern California.

Focusing on globalization and capitalism, sustainability, police brutality, protests, small farmers, GMOs, organic agriculture and food -- food justice -- this 80-minute, HD award-winning documentary was filmed in Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, Kenya, Zambia, India, Brazil and across the United States in Oakland, Iowa, Immokalee, Washington D.C., Pine Ridge reservation and White Earth reservation (including world music from Manu Chao, Immortal Technique and many more). "Greening the Revolution" features interviews with small farmers and revolutionaries, intellectuals such as Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and Vandana Shiva, as well as government and corporate officials such as the director of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and a vice president for GMO corporation Monsanto. (Yes, an interview with Monsanto! Though they have now merged with genetic engineering giant Bayer). Focusing on issues such as GMOs, government coruption, farmer suicides, diabetes, migrant farm workers and hunger, the film also looks at the resistance to harmful economic policies, amazing sustainable alternatives, organic agriculture practiced by brilliant small farmers, and the overall courage and hope found in the hearts of people refusing to accept a food system based on profits over human dignity. An official selection at the Newport Beach, Sonoma, Wild & Scenic, Milano and Oaxaca International Film Festivals. Final Cut 2016.
