From farm to table, food plays an important role in our everyday lives. Though our current agricultural system works for now, traditional farming methods that require large amounts of land may not be a viable solution for an ever-growing population. How do we build a sustainable food system for an exponentially-growing population?
In this episode, hosts Richard Banks and Stephen Powell discuss what sustainable food production would look like in a circular city. They explore alternative farming methods, such as hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. These soilless agricultural solutions would take up less space, provide higher yields, reduce runoff and water pollution, and create fresh, local food systems. But for every advantage, there are of course some disadvantages. Join Richard and Stephen as they weigh the costs and benefits of alternative farming methods, alternative meat, and more.
