It is quite amazing how much food goes to waste from either not being preserved or being mishandled. How long would the food be able to last in one of these units before going bad. Also someone else posted a design on better handling of food. I believe the title of their "challenge" was Propod. It would be great to see the combination of these two ideas as they are both discussing the amount of food waste! Look forward to seeing what comes of this!

Do you have any numbers to show how effective this design is compared to the traditional method? I would be curious to see the difference between the two methods! Also has this design been implemented into the farming industry anywhere and if so for how long?

Cj commented on NEIGHBOURHOOD FARMING

I like the idea of starting in a concentrated area and then hopefully spreading outwards, the only problem with the "neighborhood" concept is that everyone will have to get involved which is hard to do. Whenever trying to accomplish anything in an area it is difficult to get everyone on bored and on the same page, whether it be from lack of interest, time, or a busy work life. I wish more people had the mentality to start small and gradually grow larger.
