TedxTalk: Seeds of the Mind by Mohamed Hage

Hello! I have a great video for you all today – a TedxTalk about rooftop gardening! But this isn’t your ordinary rooftop garden – it’s a business! Lufa Farms in Montreal, Canada provides for its customers all kinds of fresh food, and its founder, Mohamed Hage, talks all about it.

Check it out!

I found this video to be very interesting and inspiring, and definitely something to be promoted and spread throughout communities and the world as a whole. Here is a truly amazing fact about the rooftop greenhouse that Lufa Farms built: it receives over half a million dollars in free energy each year simply from the sun. The sun provides free energy, and yet our food travels an average of 1500 miles to get to our plates! By growing local food, we can save energy and money, and enjoy food that has more nutrients and better tastes.

Thanks for reading, stay tuned for more cool things! :)
