Climate Independent Food: Survive and Thrive with Freedom from Weather, Water and Wasteby Mark R Edwards, Robert Henrikson (With)
Climate independent foods produce 20 to 30 times more food per acre every year, free of weather, water or waste. Growers use abundance methods to grow fossil-free foods that assure a sustainable food supply for many generations. Abundance methods offer an alternative for growing food and other forms of energy with plentiful resources that are cheap and will not run out - primarily solar energy, CO2 and waste stream nutrients. Abundance allows sustainable and affordable organic food production in any practically any climate, altitude, latitude or geography.
Growers use peace microfarms that avoid conflict over diminishing freshwater and other fossil resources. Microfarms can be sited practically anywhere. Organic growers recover low cost nutrients from waste streams and transform them into valuable freedom foods and other products.
