microbial life,

nutrient density,

carbon levels
Five farming principles

maintain constant ground cover, 

increase microbe populations, 

encourage biological diversity, 

reduce the use of agricultural

37 Monitoring the health of the land with Artificial Intelligence

(= Video simulation of every farm in China - i.e. this display, but green. Inset = map of High Nature Value farming in Ireland)

Source: Alibaba/Taobao Rural (via Lou)
Ireland leads in High Nature Value Farming - so we posed a challenge to Alibaba:
why not re-purpose their real-time online sales dashboard as a way to monitor

the ecological health of the land, field-by-field.
MAKING ZONE

Algae Platform
FEEDING ZONE

China's 230 million small-holder farmers are the backbone of the rural economy and
the country's food systems. Farmer live-streaming connects them directly with

urban citizens. Source: Alibaba/Taobao Rural

Microscopic organisms - our ancestors and allies -
transform food and extend its usefulness.
Fermentation is found throughout human cultures.
Hundreds of medical and scientific studies confirm
what folklore has always known: Fermented foods help
people stay healthy. Many of your favorite foods and
drinks are probably fermented. For instance: Bread,
Cheese, Wine, Beer, Mead, Cider, Chocolate, Coffee,
Tea, Pickles, Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Miso, Tempeh, Soy
Sauce, Vinegar, Yogurt, Kefir, Kombucha.

The back story of Urban-Rural is the transition “from oil age to soil age”. For a few decades,
unlimited energy enabled global flows of people and resources. The soil age, in contrast, will be
multi-local. Shown here, multi-local geography anticipated by Walter Christaller in 1930
Multi-local is not a retreat into isolation. New forms of global, open-source governance platforms are
emerging that enable diverse forms of peer-to-peer collaboration and sharing

 the ecological health of the land, field-by-field.

  • 40. Microscopic organisms - our ancestors and allies - transform food and extend its usefulness. Fermentation is found throughout human cultures. Hundreds of medical and scientific studies confirm what folklore has always known: Fermented foods help people stay healthy. Many of your favorite foods and drinks are probably fermented. For instance: Bread, Cheese, Wine, Beer, Mead, Cider, Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, Pickles, Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Miso, Tempeh, Soy Sauce, Vinegar, Yogurt, Kefir, Kombucha.

  • 43. Nick Fuentes The back story of Urban-Rural is the transition “from oil age to soil age”. For a few decades, unlimited energy enabled global flows of people and resources. The soil age, in contrast, will be multi-local. Shown here, multi-local geography anticipated by Walter Christaller in 1930
  • 44. Multi-local is not a retreat into isolation. New forms of global, open-source governance platforms are emerging that enable diverse forms of peer-to-peer collaboration and sharing
