Although most of us are, at all times, peripherally aware of the food shortages around the world, there are those who are constantly addressing the needs of the hungry. Charities, governments, and individuals make concerted efforts to alleviate the challenge of feeding the globe’s inhabitants. Here are a few links to stimulate your thoughts on what you may be able to contribute through your own work…
Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system. —Bill Mollison
From The African Moringa and Permaculture project: Food Forests, an idea pioneered by permaculture, draw upon the examples provided by natural native forests and carefully incorporate non-aggressive exotic varieties.
We made a small video explaining what the project is and some screenshots of what the final outcome of the project will look like. The video also gives details about our approach and the use of crowd sourcing in building our custom data set.
More details about the current work going on and the challenges we faced will be posted soon!
