UPDATE 26th July 2011 -The response we have received from this short story is amazing, but created many questions from subscribers who needed further information. We have since looked into this and are happy to share with you detailed information on this amazing organisation called Growing Power. It would appear that there are many subscribers of Wake Up World who have been tasked with a similar project in their local community (though perhaps not on this scale) and we trust that the new article will be of use to those who required further details.
Click here for a detailed explanation of how the below is done, though we suggest watching the below movie first as it is not included in the new article.

Original Story
I came across this video of a man who has figured out a system to grow 1 million pounds of food on 3 acres each and every year. How are they doing this?
Aquaponics 4 You* By producing 10,000 fish
* Using 300 to 500 yards of worm compost
* By utilizing vertical space
* Having 3 acres of land in green houses
* Using 1 simple aquaponic pump
* Food is grown all year by using heat from the compost piles
A packed greenhouse produces a crop value of $5 Square Foot! ($200,000/acre).
Can you imagine if places like this started popping up all over the world? It would be one giant step towards self-reliance. Food self-sufficiency is a major step towards being sovereign. If you are not able to start your own garden, consider finding a community garden or hooking up with a small local farm.
