This AI food truck could bring fresh produce directly to you

It’s no secret that artificial intelligence is trending worldwide, which is why it is also a prominent component of CES 2019. But as interest in futuristic tech grows, so does consumer interest in fresh, local food. The farm-to-table concept continues to gain popularity, which is why Panasonic has proposed an innovative mash-up of these two seemingly polar opposites — an AI mobile delivery service that operates like an ice cream truck to bring local fruits, vegetables and other grocery items di...

Solar-Powered Indoor Urban Farm by Metropolis Farms

Some idealistic people I once chatted with objected to very notion of indoor farming because it went against their romantic visions of “farming the land.” Metropolis Farms of Philadelphia is actively rejecting this archaic notion with the world’s first completely solar-powered indoor urban farm. Located in Philadelphia, on the fourth floor of a large warehouse, Metropolis Farms wants to promote local food: “We are empowering a new generation of farmers to grow food for cities, in cities.” Th...

The free grocery store fighting food waste and hunger

The Free Store, a non-profit organization and grocery store based in Wellington, New Zealand, is serving food for free and aiding in the fight against food waste. Originally started as a two-week-long art project by artist Kim Paton in 2010, the store has now grown into a more permanent institution, stocking its shelves with surplus food from bakeries and supermarkets.

Does “buying local” help communities or conflict with basic economics?

As summer approaches, picturesque roadside stands, farmer’s markets, and fields growing Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) dot the horizon from the Golden Gate to the Garden State. Consumers go to their local Farmer’s Market to keep spending local and to hopefully create jobs in the community. They “buy local” to reduce environmental impacts. Perhaps they believe that locally-produced goods simply taste better and have health benefits non-locally produced food lacks. Some believe interacting ...

Getting Away From the Hordes in Europe With a Local Guide

If you want to see what’s special about a city and get away from the tour bus crowds at the same time, there’s one sure way to make it happen: hire a local guide who lives there. On my second visit  to Budapest, the city was bulging with tourists. It was summer this time and the river cruise ships were lined up four deep on the Danube. It was hard to find a spot to pose for a photo on the Fisherman’s Bastion without getting a stranger in the shot. The most expensive restaurants—the ones where th...

South Pacific islands introduce ban on western junk food

South Pacific islands are banning western junk food in favor of a more nutritious diet. As the islands can grow organic, local food themselves, leaders in Torba, a Vanuatu province, said they want to ban imported foreign food.

Around 10,000 people reside in the province; most are subsistence farmers. But Dini said the remote islands are e...

Farm 360 in Indianapolis grows veggies with 100% renewable energy and 90% less water

Farm 360's hydroponic growing system relies on an array of thousands of energy-efficient LED lights which bathe rows upon rows of vegetables with pink light. Nutrient rich water is pumped below the plants through large, plastic drums and is then channeled to each individual through small tubes. “We’re going to keep redesigning to become as efficient as possible,” said farm manager Jim Bloom. “We’re even looking into solar power. We really want to be as self-sufficient as we can.” There are cur...
