  • Sustainable Living: Innovative Ways To Grow Your Own Food!

    Sustainable Living: Innovative Ways To Grow Your Own Food! The word, Hydroponic, comes from Latin and means working water. Simply put, it is the art of growing plants without soil. When most people think of hydroponics, they think of plants grown with their roots suspended directly into water with no growing medium. This is just one type of hydroponic gardening known as N.F.T. (nutrient film technique). There are several variations of N.F.T. used around the world and it is a very popular method of growing hydroponically. What most people don't realize is that there are countless methods and variations of hydroponic gardening. If you give a plant exactly what it needs, when it needs it, in the amount that it needs, the plant will be as healthy as is genetically possible. With hydroponics...

Sustainable Living: Innovative Ways To Grow Your Own Food! The word, Hydroponic, comes from Latin and means working water. Simply put, it is the art of growing plants without soil. When most people think of hydroponics, they think of plants grown with their roots suspended directly into water with no growing medium. This is just one type of hydroponic gardening known as N.F.T. (nutrient film technique). There are several variations of N.F.T. used around the world and it is a very popular method of growing hydroponically. What most people don't realize is that there are countless methods and variations of hydroponic gardening. If you give a plant exactly what it needs, when it needs it, in the amount that it needs, the plant will be as healthy as is genetically possible. With hydroponics this is an easy task; in soil it is far more difficult. With hydroponics the plants are grown in an inert growing medium and a perfectly balanced, pH adjusted nutrient solution is delivered to the roots in a highly soluble form. This allows the plant to uptake its food with very little effort as opposed to soil where the roots must search out the nutrients and extract them. This is true even when using rich, organic soil and top of the line nutrients. The energy expended by the roots in this process is energy better spent on vegetative growth and fruit and flower production. If you grow two genetically identical plants using soil for one and hydroponics for the other, you will almost immediately see the difference this factor makes. Faster, better growth and much greater yields are just some of the many reasons that hydroponics is being adapted around the world for commercial food production as well as a growing number of home, hobby gardeners. In the other hand, aquaponics is the marriage of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the growing plants and the plants provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in. The third participants are the microbes (nitrifying bacteria) and composting red worms that thrive in the growing media. They do the job of converting the ammonia from the fish waste first into nitrites, then into nitrates and the solids into vermicompost that that are food for the plants. In combining both systems aquaponics capitalizes on the benefits and eliminates the drawbacks of each.

The public is invited to a special gardening demonstration and harvesting event at 2 pm on Friday, Oct. 2, in the plaza area just outside the main entrance to City Hall, 333. W.

Urban gardening is ideal for people who live in apartments, condos, houses without a yard, or anyone who wants to experience the many benefits that gardening has to offer. Gardening has many benefits such as increasing physical and mental well being, developing fresh and healthy eating habits, and reducing your weekly grocery bill by growing your own vegetables. The Civic Center Edible Garden Project is an example of container gardening and is especially easy and practical because of the small amount of space the containers take up. "All you need is a container, potting soil, water, a little food, sunlight, and plants, and you are all set," says project manager April Sabucco. As part of the City of Long Beachs sustainability and green job efforts, 20 container boxes have been planted with vegetables, fruit, herbs, and edible flowers in order to show Long Beach residents how easy it is to grow their own food without having a piece of land. The surplus of food will be donated to Food Finders and will also be used to demonstrate healthy cooking and eating habits to the public. The partnership between the Office of Sustainability and the Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Networks Hire A Youth program has provided the project with four young adults who have helped set up, plant, and maintain the garden. They are gaining valuable knowledge about the importance of growing your own food and how it can benefit people who live in the city. People should try this in their own homes because its easy to maintain and it will give back by providing them with food, says Jasmine Howard, one of the Hire-A-Youth workers. Marlin Rogers, another Hire-A-Youth worker, also commented during this project I have learned what different types of vegetables can be planted in each season. The youth are learning how to start seeds, how to recognize beneficial insects, and how to harvest what has been grown, gaining valuable work experience, learning marketable skills, and working on this collaborative community project locally. The Civic Center Edible Garden Project is located to the left of City Halls east entrance, viewable from the main elevators and open for walkthroughs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. For more information on the project go to Sustainable Long Beach: www.sustainablelb.com or contact Project Manager April Sabucco at april.sabucco@longbeach.gov or 562.570.5927.

Believe it or not, ants started farming way before we did. How do they do it? What A Bug Scientist Says About 'Ant-Man' - https://youtu.be/-nUpY4M1dWA Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: Ants Mastered Sustainable Agriculture 30 Million Years Ago https://www.seeker.com/earth/ants-mastered-sustainable-agriculture-30-million-years-ago "Ants cultivated designer crops in controlled environments millions of years before humans figured out how to push seeds into the ground to grow food, scientists reported in a study Wednesday. It has long been known that dozens of ants species tend and harvest fungi in subterranean farms, mostly to feed a colony's larvae. A few species have taken that process to the next level, modifying fungi so thoroughly they can no longer survive in the wild, much in the way some genetically altered crops consumed by humans are not viable without pesticides or other inputs." Dry habitats were crucibles of domestication in the evolution of agriculture in ants http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/284/1852/20170095 "The evolution of ant agriculture, as practised by the fungus-farming 'attine' ants, is thought to have arisen in the wet rainforests of South America about 55-65 Ma. Most subsequent attine agricultural evolution, including the domestication event that produced the ancestor of higher attine cultivars, is likewise hypothesized to have occurred in South American rainforests." Symbiotic adaptations in the fungal cultivar of leaf-cutting ants https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms6675 "Centuries of artificial selection have dramatically improved the yield of human agriculture; however, strong directional selection also occurs in natural symbiotic interactions. Fungus-growing attine ants cultivate basidiomycete fungi for food. One cultivar lineage has evolved inflated hyphal tips (gongylidia) that grow in bundles called staphylae, to specifically feed the ants." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

Different types of containers can be used to grow vegetables and tree saplings at home. Even in the smallest yard a nice family kitchen garden can be set up. Trays, flower pots, cups, crates, storage cabinets, sacks, bottles, tetra pots, in different forms and sizes, it all can be used to grow fresh food in the most adverse conditions of drought and desertification, even in the desert. While saving a lot of irrigation water, one produces a maximum of food. Container gardening is one of the most efficient tools in the combat of hunger and malnutrition. It is rapidly conquering all the continents. ANYONE CAN GROW HIS OWN FOOD.

I’ve been “Growing and Raising my own food” since 2011, I actually haven’t bought food at the grocery store since August 2011. And before this I didn’t have a clue, I’ve Vlogged my whole journey and shared my ups and down on the channel for all to learn what I had to the hard way through trial and error. I only grow Heirloom Organic Vegetables during our summer months and share how I process them for winter storage. I raise free range happy ducks on my private lake, I almost eat nothing but duck meat once you’ve had free range organic duck meat it’s hard to eat anything else. We're going to have many adventures on my channel, it's going to be fun and informative.
