Easily movable, self-sufficent- this container is a showcase to the urban usage of the container.

Reinventing the Shipping Container Part 17

Podponics have already built a shipping container food grow system, but now you can help these ninjas build their initial unit. Freight Farms claim that this is a container for really any environment. Replacing food miles and creating local commerce for the urban citizen- 20k to go…

Freight Farms are easy to use systems that increase local fresh food access, create a local food economy, keep money in the community and decrease the carbon footprint of food production.  The system is designed to be largely self sustained with rainwater reclamation and a full filtration system to supply the necessary water. The electrical use is minimized by the system design and high efficiency components and will be powered by electricity from solar panels attached to the top of the freight container.  Solar energy will provide the majority of electricity that is needed while a traditional connection will allow the unit to be plugged in when/if necessary.

Informal Economics?

Could the informal economy be the route to deliver the big sustainable development ideals such as the Green Economy, Millennium Development Goals and Poverty Reduction Strategies, given that its share is rapidly increasing and that the poor mostly operate here? (Source)

It’s unclear whether or not organizing informal economies would boost developing nations or takeaway…

The Rise of the Food Truck

In a recent study performed by National Restaurant Association, 59 percent of customers said they would likely visit a food truck of their favorite restaurants:

The idea for the restaurant, Kimchi Grill, wasn’t just a case of the entrepreneurial spirit getting the best of him. Lee had the lease to the restaurant space before the first person lined up for a kimchi dish from the truck. The truck was a way for Lee to test out the recipes, build excitement, a beta test for the restaurant launch. (::Read more::)

Sustainable Sushi

Bamboo Sushi’s bona fides are overwhelming: Powered by wind energy, certified by the Marine Stewardship Council and legally constituted as a B Corp., Bamboo Sushi has partnerships with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Blue Ocean Institute and Salmon Nation. Then there’s the paper on which the 23-page menu is printed, the reusable chopsticks made of teal, the wood tables….

The Short Order Cook

Something I think a lot of cooks have had to ponder…

 I think it’s important not to end up being a short order cook and cooking for taste buds that aren’t your own. Then it’s like, "You said you wanted more of this. Does this taste right to you?" ‘Cause then you’re not tasting your own food and you’re cooking for someone else.

1000 dishes v. Hunger

This is a bit late, but better late than never.  If anyone has pics of this event from last week, please let us know! All proceeds go toward fighting worldwide hunger. Here’s a link.

It is an event whose aim is to sensitize the population’s awarness to the big problem of starvation on the occasion of the World Food Day on October 16th, 2011.

You, WHERE ARE YOU? is an initiative closely linked to the city of Bologna in Italy. It is exactly in the heart of the city, from Piazza Maggiore, where the challenge to hunger starts.

10,000 empty dishes will be placed on the ground in Piazza Maggiore, as a symbol of worldwide starvation.

You, WHERE ARE YOU? Will you join us to fill the empty dishes?
You, WHERE ARE YOU? With 5 euros, the equivalent of a pasta, the dishes will turn from white toblue.
You, WHERE ARE YOU? on the streets, on the web, with us.

Thanks to your help, the blue dishes will shape a tractor.
