Here’s Samia from @changefoodforgood, sharing her story of entrepreneurship. 🙋🏽‍♀️
Reposted from @agroparrot - Castor (Ricinus communis L.) is cultivated around the world because of the commercial importance of its oil. India is said to be the world’s largest producer of castor seed and meets most of the global demand for castor oil.

Nigeria imports over N30 billion worth of castor oil every year despite having arable and fertile land, and climatic conditions suitable for its farming. It is crystal clear that only very few Nigerians are taking advantage of the present opportunities in the different agriculture value chains.

We are so excited to be jumping on the Juneau composting train! Sustainably is one of our core values at MRV, which usually translates into energy efficient building designs. Now we can also express our environmental values through our waste management practices! Composting our organic food and paper waste allows nutrients to be recaptured and incorporated into soil, which can then be used to produce food locally. Not to mention it reduces the amount of waste filling up our landfill! Thank you @juneaucomposts for providing this service. #sustainability #compost #wastemanagement #foodsecurity #juneaualaska
This composting #toilet pulls triple duty 1) as a latrine, 2) by providing garden fertilizer, and 3) as a commodity to sell, helping Flossy Juwani in #Malawi have #foodsecurity for her family.

According to the most recent data provided at www.feedingamerica.org, these are the numbers we face in the fight against food insecurity in Texas. One out of every four children in our great state are hungry. More specifically, approximately 19.2% of Smith County residents suffer from food insecurity. Almost one fifth of an entire county...that is a GREAT need!

Thankfully, SPCF as well as many other local organizations are fighting to combat the effects of food insecurity in our community. Even our very own Dr. Valerie Smith is leading the Smith County Food Security Council to fight on the front lines right here in our county! We are so grateful for the combined efforts of local organizations to alleviate, and eventually eliminate the adverse effects that food insecurity has on the residents of our great state.
As you know, we can't do this alone! We need your help. If you would like to join the fight against hunger, please give us a call at 903-595-5525 or visit our website at stpaulchildren.org to learn how you can support organizations like SPCF in the fight against food insecurity!

Shout out to the Chaska H.S. AP Environmental Science Students who learned about local food from a Lakewinds perspective and the unique ways cooperatives show up in the community and the economy.
Planted some seeds about Minnesota’s cooperative turnover, graduate programs in cooperative management, and social businesses across the landscape. If one of them becomes a cooperator, we’ll all be way ahead on so many important fronts.

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
.
.
The egg, of course! .
.
Eggs have been around a lot longer than chickens. So some type of chicken ancestor gave birth to subsequent species that had a genetic variant more similar to what we now know as chickens. Small incremental changes over vast periods of time. All vertebrates have eggs and the hard-shelled varieties started with reptiles. They are quite literally little feathery velociraptors! .
Did you know that there are over 25 billion chickens in the world? 
The most of any bird species.
.
Chicken eggs take 21 days to incubate before they hatch. With an ideal temperature of around 100 degrees.
.
Easiest way to know if your egg is fertilized is to hold a candle/flashlight up to the egg after awhile to see if there is a fetus in there!
.
Do you raise chickens? For eggs, for meat, for pets, entertainment? 
I love that they are living composters and can help reduce food waste and turn food scraps into food! .
.

How magical?!?

Did you know cauliflower scores as one of the highest on the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index, meaning it is a whole food with one of the highest amount of nutrients per calorie? Plus it’s high in potassium and vitamin c to promote skin health and boost our immune system and brain function. Not to mention it’s versatile texture means you can sub it for potatoes and rice...Who’s a cauliflower fan? 🤩

Female farmers leading the way to their demonstration fields. In Malawi - as in most countries around Africa - at least half of all farmers are women, but they often have less access to resources and less of a voice. But this is changing! Several of these women were lead farmers in their village and it was very inspiring to see the work they were doing! 👩🏻‍🌾 #malawi #agriculture #field #igafrica #igmalawi #nature #farms #rural #villagelife #endpoverty #foodsecurity #nutrition #travel #travelgram #growingafrica #fields #femalefarmers #femalefarmersrock #foodandtheworld #natgeotravelphoto #natgeoafrica #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #amazingtravelbeauty #passionpassport

Today our food travels miles before reaching our kitchen.

It makes difficult to trace the food across the supply chain and it may takes days, if not weeks, as
companies struggle to track a mix of digital and paper-based food data
documentation across a complex food supply chain.

Overwintering garlic.

I plant my garlic the second week in october, I like to start with high quality bulbs from @filareegarlicfarm @burpeeseedco or @bakercreekseeds I then plant each clove pointed end up, 2-4 inches deep, at 5-6 inches apart. I space rows about 14 inches apart. If there is no rain in the forcast I will water the garlic cloves for the next few days. I then cover them with about 2 to 4 inchs of straw or compost. After that I wait for the young shoots to come up and when they are about 4 to 6 inchs high I then add an additional few inches of finished compost or straw. The garlic then goes through the overwintering process, this process halts growth in the green stalk and puts that energy into forming a more substantial root system that allows the bulb to grow much larger come spring time. In the spring it is critical to the growth of the bulb that you cut the flower shoot that protrudes from the stalk, this flower shoot also called the "scape" can sap the energy from the growth of the bulb and leave you with very weak and small garlic bulbs, so make sure it is cut as soon as possible. Around the beginning of july the stalks start to yellow and wilt, this is a good sign that your garlic is ready to be harvested. To harvest take a digging fork and without hitting the bulb thrust it into the ground and lift up the dirt, this will lossen the roots and bulb allowing you to pull it out of the ground without dislodging the stem. After that the garlic is hung to dry in a shed for about 2 weeks. When 2 weeks time has passed your garlic will be ready for consumption.

#Repost @thedirtrevolution 🌱 Not enough space or time to grow food at home? Use pots! If you have space next to a sunny window, patio or door step you can grow food other than basil, rosemary and other herbs popular in kitchens. What about tomatoes? Yes, you can grow tomatoes in your kitchen. Look up some different approaches and get started!

Encouragement, education, and empowerment are our three pillars at Feed Communities; Encourage kids to learn about their local food system, educate them on how it works and how to grow their own food, and empower them to create tangible change in their personal and community food network!
It's nice when your hard work starts to pay off. Each event and donation helps Ben and I do more with OsNosh.

This week I have been working at the FAO Headquarters in Rome, covering the UN negotiations on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (CGRFA-17). These talks are extremely important and cover a wide range of related topics - food security, the Sustainable Development Goals, access benefit sharing agreements, digital sequence information, the state of the world’s biodiversity and agriculture, and so much more. These negotiations have global implications for biodiversity and agriculture, and they will define a lot of what our collective future looks like. This is one of my favorite pictures of the week - the 'expert group on micro-organisms and invertebrate genetic resources' meeting in one of the rooms at the FAO headquarters. It is always such a privilege to tell the story of these negotiations, and be sure to check out more of my photos as part of the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) team here in Rome: http://enb.iisd.org/biodiv/cgrfa17/

I started developing breadfruit ingredients and products two years ago. It's been an exciting journey using a new source material for skin care ingredients. For the first time ever, I am in Samoa, the country where I source my breadfruit flowers (locally called Fune) to make my skincare products.
_
For the first time in my life I am experiencing the beauty of breadfruit. Not only are the trees majestic in appearance, they play an important role in the culture, history and well-being of Samoan people.
_
The economy of Samoa is starting to really take off, and breadfruit has been responsible for some of this growth. I am excited to be here learning and working with my partners and farmers, who I source my breadfruit from, to understand how we can make this a successful and sustainable partnership.
_
Fune (pronounced foo-nae), or breadfruit flowers were previously not used and simply collected and composted. Now they are being collected and sold, adding value to the breadfruit tree in non-food uses.
_
I hope to share with you everything that I am learning on this exciting journey. Stay tuned and please ask me any questions you may have!

Many hands make light work! .
Thanks to friends popping in to help with packaging seeds, we are on track to get everything done for #seedysaturday in Picton. .
The whole process of growing different crops of veggies, flowers and herbs, and then saving the seeds is, to me, the writing of history. We are saving seed so we can control our food supply, and focus on varieties that perform and adapt best to our ecosystem, soil and climate. The quality is more consistent, we have greater biodiversity, and we preserve our heritage.
If you can't make it this Saturday we will partcipate at the Seedy Saturday March 16th in Cobourg and March 23rd in Trenton.

In the context of rapidly evolving climate conditions, a recent study published in #PNAS addresses the challenge of climate adaptation in a way that is both scalable and targeted.
@BioversityInternational scientists use #citizenscience to demonstrate how #farmers can make important contributions to #climatechange adaptation.
The researchers applied a novel citizen science approach recently developed by Bioversity International called tricot - triadic comparisons of technologies - by which each farmer plants seeds from a test package of three varieties randomly assigned from a larger pool of varieties. Watch the video to learn more about this approach, and find out more about the study on our website.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be attending the @unitednations Global Engagement Summit tomorrow where I’ll be joining UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and nearly 1,000 other international experts, world leaders, changemakers and advocates to discuss the most pressing global issues of our time ranging from United Nations-US relations, the Global Goals, nuclear proliferation, climate change, food security, human rights and advocacy.
While our world faces critical challenges, it falls on our shoulders more than ever, to rally key stakeholders in helping catalyze scalable solutions. There’s no time like the present. Fortune and outsized social impact favors the bold.
If you have any questions you’d like to learn more about the different issues of our day, please comment or DM me. And if you’re an entrepreneur building something scalable to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals, I’d love to hear from you.

This area was an overgrown black raspberry patch when we bought our house in January 2017. One of my first projects was to turn this 27’ diameter area into a spiral shape. It’s now a food producing walking meditation that’s incredible in so many ways! I look forward to watching it fill in and develop over time. ⠀

One lesson I learned is to not skimp on the trellis. We needed SO many stakes to build the trellis! We decided to go with 6’ wooden stakes. They seemed like they’d be sturdy enough to support the raspberries (and they didn’t break our budget). But, I’m sad to realized now that many of the stakes have broken off just above the ground. ⠀

We have some repair work to do in the spring - and a bunch more sheet mulching to do to try and control the abundant creeping Charlie in the spiral.⠀

What gardening lessons have you learned the hard way?⠀

Wilson Montessori School student volunteers lead the effort to build a field of opportunity for Gulfton Residents. Middle school students used local innovation from Farm Dirt to seed a potential in productive growing. By using all available space for composting the volunteers engineered capabilities to maximize capacity. With a eye on social enterprise students create several premium soil blends and different mulches. Transplanted rainbow chard and started seed trays building a local food economy. All in a days work. Access to food is best served in experience and acquired skillsets.

Are ✨you 💥ready??? ⚡️We can barely handle all of the energy coming from our awesomely designed veggie trailer by @theplaidpenguin !!!! Now, we can go in neighborhoods and just point to the trailer— ‘food for all!’ Food is a right not a privilege and we need to treat our bodies how they deserve no matter what situation we are in. How can someone in survival mode survive without proper nutrition to thrive?? Have no fear The Bulb is here coming to your neighborhood like never before! Come to @freerangebrew next Wednesday to see it in real life at our Volunteer Orientation. Starts at 630! Cmon folks! Let’s set the commUNITY table! .

#ThrowbackThursday : A reminder that 1/3rd of the talukas in Maharashtra have been declared drought-ridden. #SSP works with #women from marginal households to equip them as farmers & decision makers. SSP focuses on building resilience through promoting sustainable agricultural practices like shifting from cash crops like sugarcane to growing and eating organic, nutritious food from the farm! #communityresilience #climateadaptation #foodsecurity #womenleadchange #maharashtra #farmtotable #climatechange #organicfood #cleaneating SDGs #zerohunger
Providing food for Ethiopian families is a tough task including all family members! Furthermore, they have to fight against soil errosion, deforestation and drought on a daily basis! All my respect and admiration belongs to these farmers and their endless dedication!

Throwback Thursday to a perfect afternoon in January 2017, when Angus @gardeningwithangus came to take photos of my fledgling garden for his soon to be released book "Grow Your Own" how to be an urban farmer.
The now retired gardening rockstar of the popular show @gardeningaustralia was so full of encouragement of my work in building a productive urban edible garden and I will never forget his game-changing words if wisdom "Soil is everything"
You can see how over time my Balcony garden has flourished and expanded.
🙏
Thankyou Angus and thankyou Simon from @Vegepod for suggesting Up_On_The_Rooftop to him!
Find me on page 34 in Angus' book!

Who is truly a farmer?
I have questioned myself several times after defining who a farmer is because of the trend of Agriculture.
Traditionally, a farmer is anyone who cultivate the food we eat directly be it crop or animal. However, the dynamics has changed over the years as many people are involved in production of food, with huge investment and infrastructure. They have more workers working on the field to ensure production and marketing of food is done by a structured body. Can these farm owners also be referred to as farmers? Or are they only investors in this sector?
Or the farm hands who work round the clock to ensure that all production activities are carried out at the right time. He or she earns her wage or salary for all the effort. Are they the true farmers? Or they are only labourers?

Or the persons who use technology to control all production activities (IoT). Can she or he be referred to as a farmer too? Or....?? Or we should only see those who live in the rural areas and involve in production activities as farmers??? Looking at the different scenarios,
Who is truly a farmer?? #farmer #innovation #technology #zerohunger #foodsecurity

Practice First-In, First-Out (FIFO) If anyone knows about keeping a lid on food costs, it's restaurants. Follow their example by using older items first. An organized fridge makes this possible: put new purchases behind the food that needs to be eaten first.⠀
