A discussion of how we can increase the security our local food supply at a time when rising fuel costs, climate change and political turmoil make it particularly vulnerable. As seen through the lens of the Imani Gardens, located at 1680 Pacific Street and 87-91 Schenectady Street.
Geoff Lawton has developed yet another timely video featuring a greenhouse in British Columbia that's using climate battery technology to heat a large greenhouse. Interestingly the greenhouse incorporates an insulated mass on the north wall to conserve heat. In the model we're developing at Imani, we propose to build just this sort of wall made out of earthbags. The ideas are tantalizing in a time when our reliance on fossil fuels is about to end, one way or another. Will the end be a horrible disaster because we haven't prepared for it, or a gradual transition based on a carefully thought through plan. The choice is ours, and yours.
