“What’s Wrong With Our Food System? And How Can We Make A Difference?”
Recently, Birke was a speaker at a TED Conference. The annual TED conferences, in Long Beach/Palm Springs and Oxford, bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes). TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
Homa Farm: Devas’ Harvest
“Deva’s Harvest” is the name of a one acre HOMA farm on the outskirts of Jackson, Mississippi. There, many of the herbs and vegetables grow in raised beds arranged in energetic circular forms (Mandalas). Vermiculture, compost and other natural methods are also used to obtain abundant and tasty produce.
Two sisters, Cristina and Alejandra Mamud, use Homa Farming methods and they have experienced that biological controllers take care of damaging insects and diseases on their land. They also apply Homa Farming techniques in their two greenhouses.
