"Not to hurt our humble brethren, the [other] animals, is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission: to be of service to them whenever they require it. If you have [humans] who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion... you will have [humans] who will deal likewise with other [humans]." -St. Francis of Assisi

True your sentiments here. It is estimated that half of world population live in Cities & Urban Areas. By 2050, this may go 75%.

And this shall put immense pressure on demand for Food in Urban Areas and cities.

Growing your own food has many socioeconomic, climatic and psychological benefits.

It's our wish to partner with Urban households and Urban communities to strengthen urban food systems as way of ending extreme hunger, malnutrition and extreme poverty.

Our business model promotes the adoption of simple Urban Farming Technologies but with high food productivity.

We shall prosper...

I watched your video, Nixon. This is really great work you're doing!

Pandemic or no pandemic, this is the way of the future, to help solve the problem of food insecurity all over the world, especially since the global human population still is growing exponentially (please see my page, and no "TLDR" allowed, lol). Anyway, I wish that whoever planted the trees in my yard, decades ago, had planted food-bearing trees instead of other types of trees. I have grown food in large pots on homemade caddies on my backyard patio, though, and also in the ground in my backyard. I used to do this every year, but it's become more challenging with the effects of climate change: unpredictable and sometimes very wildly fluctuating temperatures to extremes of both very hot and very cold, sometimes in only twenty-four hours or less, so I think a greenhouse probably would be helpful. Anyway, even some edible plants, such as herbs, can be grown in pots inside the house. Everything helps. :)

Thank you for doing the important work you're doing and also for teaching others, as well.

I just saw a reference to Isaiah 66:15-24 on another borrower's page tonight (morning where you are), so I looked it up: [Isaiah-6615-24-the-goal-of-life/].

Paraphrasing, the goal of life is for all of us to find our way back to God.

I would say that small-scale growing of food locally is one of the ways we do that. (Humans surely will be judged with terrible disappointment for the sin, among our many other sins, of our ungodly large-scale agribusiness that we as a species have been engaging in, never intended by God, causing terrible harm to the Earth and to our own health and to the health of other species, too, if we think about it.)

Thank you, again, for teaching others how to do small-scale vegetable farming.

Best wishes, Nixon, and please stay safe. :)
