On the slopes of Mount Telaithrion on the island of Evia, a group of young Greeks have left the busy city and created a self-reliant rural community. Their goal is to eat only the organic produce they grow themselves, to free themselves from the national electricity grid, and to exchange what they grow or make instead of using money. The project, whose ultimate goal is to create a school for sustainable living, was the idea of four Athenians who met online back in 2008 and bonded over their dissatisfaction with the daily grind of city life. In their second year of living permanently on a forested patch of land next to the village of Aghios, 80 percent of the food they eat now comes from their two herb and vegetable gardens and the fruit they pick off the trees. The group, almost all o...

Two entrepreneurs Richard Ballard and Steven Dring have set up a 2.5 acre crop farm below the Northern Line, near Clapham North in London. The first test garden, which has been up and running for a few months as part of a commercial project called Growing Underground, backed by television chef Michel Roux junior. The "farm" itself consists of table-height beds of hemp in which salads and herbs are being grown hydroponically. That means nutrient-rich water floods the beds once a day before being slowly drained away, with no soil involved in the process. Above each bed are strips of special low energy LED lights. They use special low energy LED bulbs and an integrated hydroponics system to grow a range of micro-herbs, shoots, miniature vegetables and other delicacies to be sold to restaur...

In this five-minute video I walk through an organic food market in Union Square (NYC) and showcase the types of items that were up for sale! It was a wet, gloomy, overcast day so the crowd was much smaller than what it would be on a sunny day. * Date of recording: October 3rd, 2015 * Publicación en facebook: http://on.fb.me/1OS0gw3

In New York City, farming on a rooftop is not just an idea. Brooklyn Grange farms more than two and a half acres of rooftops in Brooklyn and Queens, and then sells what it produces to New Yorkers. A special soil mixture is used to minimize weight on the roofs and allow rapid drainage during heavy downpours. The farmed rooftops also house chickens and an apiary. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Real Food and Sustainable Tourism in Tuscany. We offer the unique experience to discover the real food and the real people at http://www.suziesyard.com/. A lot of activities at Mount Cetona is 750 miles from London, or the same distance as Dover to John O’Groats. Our journey began in 1999 when we swapped city life for rural Tuscany. Looking for clean air and a slower pace of life, we got bitten by the land bug and by what it means to grow real food. Suzie’s Yard started with these beautiful, old olive trees. Most families in the area have their own grove and we wanted to be part of that. And once you make your own oil, there’s no going back. Here we are in Le Cretaie, an olive grove that’s south facing and protected from the harsh winds. It has the perfect combination of cultivar...
