Aquaponics is a water based plant growing system that utilizes fish 🐟poop💩 as fertilizer. Want good fish poop? Feed the fish good food! Here is duckweed🍃 a cover crop that grows well over the surface of water. We didnt actually introduce it to the system, it just started growing. Like others things that randomly start growing it probably fell into the water via bird. Which is typical because we use an outside system. All types of plants have randomly grown in this system; different shrubs and even a palm tree 🌴have started from the water. We use this duckweed to feed the fish in conjunction with regular fish food, alternating every other day. Everyone needs to eat their greens for optimum health. 💪🌿
Sign of our time. Cattle at Large= Free to roam!
Feelin' that on my moto (horse;) Whether you ride a motorbike, horse, or anything else that makes ya feel free, so to, is it important for the wild to stay wild and graze freely. I'm talking about the beautiful bovine.
They are prairie-bred & grass-fed. ✌🏻️🐂💓 Keep grazing and riding the open range!
At the end of the day, it's important to me as a maker of a meat product, to the know the "how" of the cow, the origin. Sourcing the best stewarded agricultural practices and being supported by conscious consumers who recognize the value of good healthy meat, is amazing and much much appreciated on this journey! Much love and happy long weekend!
I’m at a Food Sustainability Media Award event this evening - @tomsfeast will be talking to @thomsonreutersfoundation climate editor Laurie Goering, as well as sharing an amazing menu inspired by our planet’s major food paradoxes - the plates are called ‘Food vs Fuel’, ‘Waste vs Starvation’ and ‘Hunger vs Obesity’. I was fortunate enough to have a brief chat with Tom before the event starts - hence the empty chairs - which I will share in due course! #goodfoodmedia
Yesterday’s team equity practice after our weekly staff meeting: unpacking our #goodfoodethic “integrity” as it relates to “intentional adaptation” in #emergentstrategy by @adriennemareebrown 🌱 what are the ways we practice self awareness and self inquiry as it relates to identity, privilege, and power - honestly and mindfully? How do we hold ourselves accountable? How do we/can we practice intentional adaptation?✨ Share with us! How do you practice integrity in your work and/or adapt to honor true impact?
Bij de visafslag in Urk worden de vissen van de MDV-1 (zie vorige posts) geveild. Dat gebeurd met een soort klok waar de prijs op staat die naar beneden loopt. Als iemand akkoord gaat dan wordt de partij vis voor die prijs verkocht 🐟

America deserves a food system that we can be proud of. That’s why we’ve signed onto this list of businesses, nonprofits, and leaders who oppose the House #FarmBill . Read more about our opposition to the King Amendment in profile link and how if passed, it would undo decades of hard-fought victories for farmed animals. http://bit.ly/FarmBillList
We collaborate with our friends at @earthwalkerco to minimise waste as much as possible. They are experts at utilising every bit of the vegetables we grow (including fennel fronds and carrot tops), and turning them into delicious meals. Even the transport can be considered having a negligible impact since we're piggy-backing off the best local dairy around, @country_valley deliveries who are very happy to return our reusable tubs back to base. Collaboration is imperative to localise our food system and we are so happy to be working with these champions to make that happen.
We wanted to give a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to the people that have supported us on this endeavor of making urban farming a reality. We wouldn’t be here without the love and support of our friends, family, and the stores that offer online shopping. For those that have given us your creativity energy, a kind comment, or a purchase from our plant sale, we thank you! .

How do we #HELP#maui at this time of transition? What can we do to ensure a #brighterfuture when we are a resident that does not have access to or ownership of agricultural lands?✨?✨?
WE CAN VOLUNTEER FOR SCHOOL GARDENS!
Empowering #gardenbased#learning experiences for our #futuregeneration means they will #grow with the #innerstanding that #caring for the #earth is an important part of our #foodsystem and #livelihood .
Most schools on Maui have a school Garden and they host workdays for community members to get involved...
<——👆 SWIPE LEFT for a clip of the Māla / Garden Work Day at Pā`ia Elementary School on (( FEBRUARY 10 | 2017 )) hosted by @mauischoolgardennetwork. Founder of Maui School Garden Network, Lehn Huff explains how the Industrial Art students of King Kekaulike High School came down to construct the garden shed for Pā`ia Elementary.
SWIPE LEFT again and again to see MSGN volunteers preparing starts for school gardens in the #greenhouse . We offered to transport #soil for plant starts in the first quarter and this is actually how we met one of our 10 local #artists .

Only one more day until the start of my summer CSA, and I’m so ready! I’ve been—gasp—going to the grocery store for the past few weeks, and it’s just felt wrong. The CSA that I’m a site host for goes year-round, but we’ve had a break for a few weeks. And this year I didn’t do a good job of preserving what I had as the year went along—no canning and not even much freezing. That was a mistake.⠀
It’s not just the superior taste of farm-fresh veggies that I’m craving, but the intangible things that have come from my CSA experience: feeling a connection to the source of my food, living in the rhythm of the seasons, and being nurtured by the earth. It’s a much more intimate and nourishing experience than a trip to the grocery. I feel such deep gratitude each time I open the CSA box.⠀
How about you? Has your CSA started? What’s in your share—or what are you harvesting--this week?⠀
Tacos are a staple in my diet because they are just so darn good…and they are really just a vehicle for avocados and smoked paprika LOL.⠀
I like to stay away from lectin based food because they can be irritating to my digestive system and can also cause brain fog and make you tired—especially if you’re digestive system has been compromised at all aka leaky gut. I will talk about lectins in a future post but if you want to know more about them and how avoiding them can improve how you feel, I recommend checking out The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Gundry (@drstevengundry) as a source of more information.⠀
All that said, I have learned how to make super yummy tacos without cheese (because I am dairy free), black beans and tomatoes (because they are high lectin foods) and raw veggies like lettuce and onions (because cooked food tends to be better for compromised digestive systems).⠀
How to Make Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free and Lectin-Free Tacos⠀
1) Cook up some of your favorite veggies. I like to use sweet potatoes, onions, broccoli and kale. I find it’s easiest to cook up a bunch of veggies in advance during a food prep session. For tips on this check out the Supawesome Cooking System in the Highlights over at @supawesomelife. ⠀
2)Throw veggies and your favorite protein into a sauce pan and warm them up. I use everything from grass fed beef sausage to salmon to chimichurri cod (cod recipe in my “food” highlight in profile).⠀
3) Once warm, remove from heat and add a healthy fat (like olive, coconut, walnut or avocado) and your favorite spices. I like to use Redmond sea salt, dill weed, cumin, smoked paprika and a touch of garlic powder. Season to taste.⠀
4) I assemble the tacos into @therealcoconut tortillas with cilantro, avocado and a squeeze of lemon.⠀
My tacos are my go to for dinner guests and so far I have a 100% “these are amazing” success rate so I hope you enjoy them as much as my friends do!⠀
Feel free to comment below with any questions!⠀
Do you CSA? SHARING THE HARVEST by Elizabeth Henderson with Robyn Van En (2007) is still *the* resource for all things Community Supported Agriculture, from starting one up to legalities to communications to harvest and distribution. The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and this expanded and revised edition continues to help lead the way toward a revitalized agriculture.
