Lowering Food Costs Increasing Revenue (Advanced Greenhouse Project)
For a more sustainable future, we must prepare today. Is accessing Healthy Food important to you? Does eating healthy seem to cost more than necessary? I believe Healthy Food should be accessible and affordable for everyone. Access and Affordability is an obstacle that we can fix. Sustainably and cost-effectively we can do this.
How would we go about implementing this?
By promoting advanced agriculture and aquatic development within our city.
The city owns a large assortment of vacant lots, especially in economically disadvantaged areas that have significant issues with sourcing healthy Food. So, let's put this land to good use.
How to start?
Promote a new future-ready greenhouse program. This program will be different from existing local and urban farming programs that are already in place or that have existed in the past.
1. Aeroculture uses fewer resources than conventional farming and produces a far higher yield in a shorter period with minimal space and at lower operating costs.
2. Aquaculture will provide fish and seafood. Fresh and uncontaminated. There would be a tiny carbon footprint, for both, and they would be sustainable. The best part of both is year-long production.
Food Stuffs Created:
This project will feed our city, lower our food costs, and create a more sustainable environment with the bonus of generating more revenue for Our City.
We can sell any non-consumed or purchased produce to local stores and restaurants at a lower cost than what they are paying for most organic products.
Increases quality of life.
Also, it can be used to teach this critical emerging field of advanced agriculture.
Locally Sourced, With A Longer Self Life
Most people are unaware that a large part of the cost of produce is transportation from outside our state or country. Because of that, most crops have such a short shelf-life as well. This initiative will solve that.
