  • Young Greeks Create Self-reliant Island Society

    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.

He believes we we undervalue food as a society and blames this, to some extent, on urban living which has disconnected us from agriculture. To address this, he founded Open Farm Sunday - an event designed to reconnect urban society to agriculture and food which has grown to become bigger than the Glastonbury rock festival. In this talk, Ian explains why we should all give up a day a year to work on a farm. Not only might we learn to value food more, but it might even help us better tackle the future challenges of global food security.

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 of whom follow a strict vegetarian diet, sleep communally in yurts - portable, tent-like dwellings made of tarp often seen in Central Asia. Whatever is left over from their gardens, they exchange in the village for the supplies they cannot produce. 32-year-old co-founder Apostolos Sianos quit a well-paying job as a web site designer in Athens to help start the community, which is called 'Free and Real.' [Apostolos Sianos, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "The crisis or the austerity measures doesn't actually affect you because you create your life and your future everyday, it has nothing to do with the outside circle. It may (have) affected us, but only in a good way because more and more people are willing to be self-sufficient and sustainable, so they contact us, and more and more people after the crisis want to get involved." The group actively use social media, and last year over one hundred people from Greece and abroad asked about joining or collaborating in some way. Dionysis Papanikolaou, for example, gave up a lucrative academic career to be closer to nature and far from the heavy atmosphere of the financial crisis in Greece. [Dionysis Papanikolaou, Group Member]: "If you keep on reading news, watching TV and the crisis, the crisis, the crisis, even subconsciously you say the crisis! Here, there is no crisis. I mean, it makes no difference." The group take pride in being self-sufficient. [Panagiotis Kantas, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "The reality of life is just outside your door. When you have to warm yourself up you actually have to go out in the wood and gather wood, fire wood, and bring it home to actually warm yourself up." They currently organize seminars on organic farming and have drawn up the plans for a large school on sustainable living to be constructed later this summer, and for which they raised money on a crowdfunding site on the internet. [Panagiotis Kantas, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "I just try to be the change I want to be, instead of waiting for a government to make the change, or instead of voting for someone to make the change. I try to be the change." For more news and videos visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C

It's got a view to die for. Rooftop Farms atop a warehouse in Brooklyn grow more than 30 varieties of organic fruits and vegetables, including heirloom tomatoes, zucchini, aubergines and green onions. While green roofs are nothing new, the sheer scale of the farm in the heart of one of the world's most congested cities is impressive. Lisa Goode is the owner of Rooftop Farms. [Lisa Goode, Owner, Rooftop Farms]: "There's layers of drainage mat and separation fabric & mdash; it's all very technical stuff that the dirt actually just goes right on top of. And then you grow stuff in the dirt. But most importantly, a green roof has great environmental benefits such as storm-water reduction, which is a huge problem in New York City. There's cooling for the building and if we can amass enough green roofs, hopefully it will help the heat island issue in New York City too." The biggest problem with designing green roofs, Goode says, is convincing developers they are a good idea. She says there is a misguided perception that they can damage a building's roof. The reverse is true, she says. Greenery can protect a roof membrane from the damaging effects of the sun and cold weather. Andy Darrell, Regional Manager of the Environmental Defense Fund, says another benefit of Rooftop Farms is that it lowers the carbon footprint caused by trucks used to transport food into the city. [Andy Darrell, Regional Manager, Environmental Defense Fund]: "About 70 percent of the air cancer risk in the air that we breathe comes from cars and trucks on our streets. So anything we can do to get trucks out of our communities and off of our crowded streets is a good thing." Rooftop Farms is managed by a team of experienced farmers and volunteers. Neighbors often stop by and local restaurants get daily deliveries of fruits, vegetables and herbs. Ben Flanner, one of the farmers, is the delivery man. Marlow and Sons, a neighborhood eatery, particularly likes the farm's heirloom tomatoes and mesclun greens. Sean Rembold is its Executive Chef. [Sean Rembold, Executive Chef]: "It is pretty amazing, when even though we can't get the volume maybe from the rooftop farm, to know that we can get fresh excellent vegetables… I could call right now — call Ben & mdash; and he would bicycle over something within the hour. So it's pretty amazing." Rooftop Farms is a pilot project. It cost $60,000 to design and build. The project's goal is to bring down costs and to build more farms like it across New York City.

Organic products are growing in popularity in Switzerland, where organic farms and consumers of organic products are on the rise. (SRF/swissinfo.ch) On average, Swiss consumers spent CHF280 ($293) per person on organic products in 2015 – the highest per capita spending worldwide. According to Bio Suisse, the umbrella organisation for organic farmers, 46% of Swiss shoppers buy organic products on a weekly basis and 72% buy organic several times per month. The most popular organic products in Switzerland were eggs, fresh bread and vegetables. In the past year both the number of organic farms and the number of people buying organic products have increased, says Bio Suisse. In 2015, there were 6,031 organic producers in the country – 52 more than in the previous year. Sales increased by 5.2% to more than CHF2.3 billion (and a market share of 7.7% – the highest ever. Benefitting most from the trend are the wholesalers. Growth was largely driven by large retailers like Coop and Migros. But in small specialty organic food stores, sales stagnated. In contrast to other sectors, the organic market was only marginally affected by the strong Swiss franc and shopping tourism, where the Swiss go to neighbouring countries to shop. According to Bio Suisse, many consumers of organic products want to buy local products and to cut down on CO2 emissions. --- swissinfo.ch is the international branch of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SBC).

Ian Piggot is farming the same land as his ancestors of 600 years, and is trying and testing a range of regenerative agricultural methods on his farm. He believes we we undervalue food as a society and blames this, to some extent, on urban living which has disconnected us from agriculture. To address this, he founded Open Farm Sunday - an event designed to reconnect urban society to agriculture and food which has grown to become bigger than the Glastonbury rock festival. In this talk, Ian explains why we should all give up a day a year to work on a farm. Not only might we learn to value food more, but it might even help us better tackle the future challenges of global food security. Ian is an entrepreneur and farmer in the Harpenden area of Hertfordshire. UK. His family have been farming in the area for over 600 years. After a period of time working in the financial sector in the city of London, Ian returned to the farm and tried different ways of farming to do the best by has land whilst remaining profitable. He founded "Open Farm Sunday" which has attracted over a million visitors to farms around the UK and is now an international event. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
