Your Selected Place: what’s the name of the Place you’re developing a Vision for?
Lavender Hill/ Cape Flats,
What country is your selected Place located in?
Describe your relationship to the place you’ve selected.
Lavender hill is a place you don't go to, its one of South Africa's most notorious gang lands, I was contracted to assist an NGO set up a food garden at a school in lavender Hill, as the crow fly's I was born 35 km from lavender hill, my entire life I have avoided this area, driving in for the first time I felt ashamed.
Describe the People and Place: Provide information that would be helpful for an outsider who has never been there and may have no context about this Place to better understand the area.
Geographically, Lavender hill is a an invisible jail that holds 35 000 people in poverty and despair, despite its pretty name, it was place designed by the administrators of the apartheid Government to hold and control a fraction of the coloured community of cape town
Lavender Hill Village Growers, a group of men who are empowering themselves and the community by growing food
What is the estimated population (current 2020) in your Place?
Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.
2020-Gang violence arises out of the need to have economic survival, the circle does not close, can not react to violence with more violence, my vision is to address the economic survival of the people, and stamp out malnutrition, this will break the shackles of gangsterism - 2050- by stabilizing organic waste using the power of composting worms, primitive low cost methods, in conjunction with barley microgreens grown in soil , using free energy such as GaNs in the growing phase, with emphasis on micro nutrients, producing the cheapest organic egg in Africa, you can not educate a child on an empty stomach, which means the circle does not break, an organic farmed egg is the apex of nutrition for a child, making it affordable, will ensure its demand, the-by product is urban agriculture, making it labour intensive and producing premium organic products
Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.
"if shit was worth anything, the poor would be born without arsholes" people are born into poverty, gangsterism makes sure its a life sentence, by simply producing the cheapest egg in Africa on a formula of free and exponential energy opens up a new dimension of possibilities-we hold the proof of concept.
High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.
If you produce daily 10 000 organic raised hen eggs, and s.ell them for 1//4 of the normal retail rate, based on a business as unusual approach-a disruptive technology, it still remains profit driven, allowing for franchise and expansion, hence creating a new market price, and new system to produce an organic egg, based on waste stabilization and community involvement
Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?
Just like time does not stop, nor does waste, its a continuous stream, by stabilizing this energy into a high dense organic nutritional animal feed (microgreen barley grass grown in soil kissed by GaNs) seeking methods that have already been achieved, no need to reinvent the wheel, nature offers the solutions,
Barley micro Greens, 7 day growing time, sowed in living soil, besides increasing the nutritional power, 6 fold, 1 ton of seed can be converted to 5 tons of nutrient dense fodder for animals, feeding this to egg laying hens, using alternative protein, and recycling egg shells into the diet ensures an extremely low feed bill, yet an organic egg is achived
