Growing Power: Urban Aquaponics, Vermiculture and Sustainable Agriculture

When we reported on the proposed Urban Aquaculture Center (UAC) last week, commenter Luke informed us of a video featuring UAC affiliates Growing Power — a collective of urban community farms experimenting with aquaponics, vermiculture, greenhouse salad crops and good, sustainable food growing in general. Surprised that we hadn't come across these guys before, we did a little digging around — not only did we find the excellent, inspiring introductory video above, but we also came across a series produced by Outpost Natural Foods that provides a little more detail about the various aspects of Growing Power's operations. Click below the fold for videos on aquaponics, vermiculture and urban greenhouse growing. And check out our previous post on urban aquaponics while you're at it. As former professional basketball player and Growing Power founder Will Allen says, "food is at the basis, but really it's about life." Amen to that
