VIDEO: The (Open-Source) Ecologist

News 21 from Berkeley, California visited Factor e Farm a few weeks back. They are currently producing The Ration, a food and health reporting project by UC Berkeley School of Journalism. Factor e Farm is the first feature in this series. This is an impressively well done 9 minute piece. Thanks, News 21.

    Awesome project and vision. I just became a true fan.

    As middle and working classes are hit with increasing costs of living, social problems, and environmental issues, OSE communities will naturally grow. The key to change is making old way of doing things obsolete. When localized self sufficiency provides an increased standard of living over the centralized/industrial 40 hour work week, people all over the world will flock to it.

    Looking forward to contributing more to this project!

    Hey! I didn’t know you got flooded in the literal sense and lost three laptops. Sounds pretty bad!

    The video was high quality, though somehow they didn’t manage to show much in those minutes. I guess it was the style, close and personal 😉
