This New Neighborhood Will Grow Its Own Food, Power Itself & Handle Its Own Waste

[Editor’s Note]

Thanks to G.L. for sharing this link.  Its vital information that shows what’s possible when individuals use their imagination to come up with solutions.

If you live inside one of the houses in a new neighborhood being built in an Amsterdam suburb, your dining room might be next to an indoor vegetable garden. Outside, you’ll have another seasonal garden. And down the street, almost everything you eat will be grown in high-tech vertical farms.

The neighborhood will be the first ReGen Village, a new type of community designed to be fully self-sufficient, growing its own food, making its own energy, and handling its own waste in a closed loop.

Any household waste that can be composted will feed livestock or soldier flies. The soldier flies will feed fish, and fish waste will fertilize an aquaculture system that produces fruit and vegetables for the homes. Seasonal gardens will be fertilized by waste from the livestock.

By using the most advanced methods for growing food—a combination of aeroponics, aquaponics, permaculture, food forests, and high-yield organic farming—the neighborhood will grow many times more food than a traditional farm of the same size, with fewer resources. Aquaponics, for example, can produce 10 times as much produce on the same amount of land, with 90% less water.

“We anticipate literally tons of abundant organic food every year—from vegetables, fruit, nuts, legumes, fish, eggs, chicken, small animal dairy and protein—that can continually grow and yield in the vertical garden systems all year long as supplement to the seasonal gardens and farming adjacent,” says James Ehrlich, CEO of ReGen Villages, the California-based developer, which will also manage the neighborhood-slash-farm. The company partnered with Effekt, a Danish architecture firm, on the design.

The community will also produce its own energy, using a mixture of geothermal, solar, solar thermal, wind, and biomass. “We’re looking at some very interesting technologies for small-footprint biomass that can take surrounding farm waste and turn that into a consistent energy source in a way that can power these communities in northern Europe even in the dead of winter,” Ehrlich says. A smart grid will distribute power efficiently, sending it to a carport to charge shared electric cars as needed.

A biogas plant will turn any non-compostable household waste into power and water. A water storage system will collect rainwater and graywater and redistribute it to seasonal gardens and the aquaponic system.

It’s the first of a network of similar communities that ReGen plans to build around the world.

Whole Foods to Install Solar Units at up to 200 of its Stores

It was just a week ago that the Internet exploded with confused-anger after a photograph of peeled oranges packaged in plastic on the shelves of a Whole Foods store was posted on Twitter. Whole Foods, which fancies itself a sustainable and environmentally friendly company, quickly pulled the fruit from its shelves after enduring thousands of complaints about the oranges’ “wasteful” packaging.

But the company’s foray into solar power may help redeem its reputation among those who were incensed by the orange fiasco.

Whole Foods announced last week that it had signed agreements with SolarCity (chaired by Elon Musk) and NRG Energy to install rooftop solar panels atop as many as 100 of its stores and distribution centers.

The units will be installed by New Jersey-based NRG Energy at 84 locations in 9 states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Texas. SolarCity, of California, will install the rest of the units.

SolarCity will also provide systems for the grocery chain, which could potentially expand the rooftop solar program as the installations are rolled out.

Whole Foods’ ultimate goal is to install solar at some 200 locations. A rooftop solar unit generates an estimated 5% to 20% of the annual electricity a store needs.
