Gardening of the Future

There seems to be a perfect storm coming in terms of food prices. Rapidly rising oil prices, depleted oceans, food scares galore (contaminated buffalo mozzarella and cantaloupe just this week), and global warming will all likely make food significantly more expensive very soon. Without some major foresight and a change in attitudes, it's likely that good food will become a rare treat, even for those of us in wealthy nations. Hopefully plans to make better use of local produce like this one will catch on, and people will start making better food choices--to eat only sustainable fish species and less meat in general.
