"When we stay at the values level (no child should suffer from hunger, animals should be treated humanely, and we shouldn’t waste tax-payer money on profitable operations if they can get by on their own when have other needs), the food movement is united. When we get in our issue silos, we find it harder to work together, harder to communicate, and so-forth."

Such is the audacity of man, that he hath learned to counterfeit nature, and is so bold as to challenge her in her own work.

nice presentation and sexy idea, but it makes me think:

  • Who has done this before? 
  • Who would have access to the produce?  
  • How would the building/business impact the area that it exists in? 
  • How resource intensive is it? (planning, building, operating) 
  • Does it empower the workers?

hydroponics is very interesting and it definitely has its place in an improved food system, but i can’t help feeling a bit turned off by the scale of this project and the mechanization of the process.

Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen’s imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.
