Tonight Bioponica was on public access with Atlanta’s People TV for a discussion with folks from Emory Healing Community Center and Charitable Connections regarding our collective vision to establish a greenhouse, grocery, clinic and recycling complex in NW Atlanta.
The neighborhood is severely deficient in nutritious food, jobs and industry. This complex, we believe, will invigorate the community, employ those within walking distance and establish a model for success around food, nutrition and sales in an economically distressed community.
After the filming, Bioponica was invited by State Representative Sharon Beasley Teague to share our ideas with congress folks and lobbyists who go in and out of the General Assembly Chamber that day. We’ll be there for three hours talking up a storm.
Wanna join us? We’ll be speaking next Friday the 9-noon on the 17th.
In particular, we’ll be sharing what we pland to discuss at the Georgia Organics Conference in Columbus later this month. There will be a full description of the Integrated Food Plant and how a small piece of urban property is all that is needed to stimulate a community and build a green cottage industry.
Slides will reflect our ideas of waste, energy, water, food/feed/medicinals, education, profitability and jobs as they pertain to the opportunities created with the construction of one or more small scale sustainable farming operations. Our solutions for each of the above will be addressed with the components of the Food Plant, including anaerobic digesters (55 gallon to multi ton), Incubators and Biogardens, rainwater harvest and integration, thermal mass storage, evaporative cooling, generator/boiler/biomass furnaces, PV panels, worms, education, mentoring, food processing and retail of juices, salads, and pick-your-own produce.
The presentation will take place at the State Legislature, Friday Feb 19th- on the south side of the Capital, outside the main hall.
