In one of the more remote areas of Odisha, eastern India live small communities of subsistence farmers, who, over the last few years have managed to return to a system of cooperative, zero-input agriculture. This was a system that was used by all agricultural communities not so long ago until the event of the ‘Green Revolution’ that changed everything.
Now, rather than surviving on an economically driven mono-crop system, the women of the community plant a variety of vegetables supplying them and their family with not only an income but also a diverse source of nutrition.
Chris is a creator, papa, urban grower of sunflower, pea, and buckwheat shoots which are then cut and pedaled to you within hours of harvest, bike-powered. Chris likes soil, compost, and microgreens. From 2001 to 2006 Chris operated Influence Organics – a small, certified organic farm, on Vancouver Island. “Too much work”, he thought, “I’m going back to school”. He now holds a BSc. in Agroecology from UBC where his studies focused on soils, urban farming, and plant breeding. Chris still works too much, but that’s ok.
Support your local urban farmers (and local rural farmers of course), and know where your food comes from.
