Welcome On these pages you can find the reflections and working notes of the Resilients, people who imagine possible futures and prototype them as artistic experiments in living and working environments. We transform the concept of resilience into concrete practice by designing experimental social structures and situations and stress-testing them in real-life labs – our case studies in possible futures. Control of the Commons explores the culture of water use by travelling on vessels constructed from recycled and locally sourced materials. Augmented Urban Gardens are experimental grounds for cultivation of plants (and their ecosystems), on a fertile bed of arts and technology.The Pollinators re-imagine pilgrimage as an itinerant artistic laboratory, connecting people and places they travel through. resilients:start [the libarynth] resilients:start [the libarynth]

Experts predict what we’ll be eating in 2050 By Deborah Kotz, Globe Staff The second annual Food Day was held on Wednesday, and the theme centered around predicting what our plates will look like 38 years from now. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick celebrated Food Day by discussing sustainability -- the buzzword that’s about maintaining our food supply -- with local students and members of his cabinet at the Hayley House Café in Roxbury. In Washington, a gaggle of nutrition experts gathered at the US Capitol to look into their own crystal balls. “Will we be eating algae burgers produced in a giant sea farm or homemade soups with produce from small organic farms?” asked Michael Jacobson, executive director of the nonprofit nutrition activist group Center for Science in the Public Interest who organized Food Day.

Aquaponic Worms FAQ Q- How much time will it take for me to maintain my aquaponics system? A – Aquabundance Aquaponics Systems take very little time to maintain! On most days it will take less than five minutes to feed the fish and check that the pump and the siphons are operating properly. We then recommend that you test pH and Ammonia levels and refill the water levels in your tank weekly. This will probably take an additional ten minutes. Aquaponic Worms FAQ

The design of the beehive is unconventional, appealing, and respects the natural behavior of the bees. It consists of two parts: entry passage and flower pot outside, and glass vessel containing an array of honeycomb frames, inside. The glass shell filters light to let through the orange wavelength which bees use for sight. Design Probes - Urban beehive Design Probes - Urban beehive

Farming the Cities, Feeding an Urban Future WASHINGTON - June 16 - As people move from rural to urban settings in search of economic opportunities, urban agriculture is becoming an important provider of both food and employment, according to researchers with the Worldwatch Institute. "Urban agriculture is providing food, jobs, and hope in Nairobi, Kampala, Dakar, and other cities across sub-Saharan Africa," said Danielle Nierenberg, co-director of the Institute's Nourishing the Planet project. "In some cases, urban farmers are providing important inputs, such as seed, to rural farmers, dispelling the myth that urban agriculture helps feed the poor and hungry only in cities." The United Nations projects that up to 65 percent of the world's population will live in cities by 2050, up from around 50 percent today. The rate of urban migration is particularly high in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, where inadequate urban infrastructure struggles to keep up with the large influx of people.

NASA researcher checking hydroponic onions with Bibb lettuce to his left and radishes to the right Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, biochar, mineral wool, expanded clay pebbles or coconut husk. Researchers discovered in the 18th century that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. In natural conditions, soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir but the soil itself is not essential to plant growth.

A comparative study: Urban Agriculture in Vancouver, Dar es Salaam and Copenhagen Independent Study by Afton Halloran University of Copenhagen Faculty of Life Science Jan 21, 2011 Abstract Although generally thought of as a livelihood strategy for the urban poor in developing countries, urban agriculture is prevalent in both the global South and North. Urban agriculture has been heralded for its environmental, social and economic benefits. However, in some cities it is an unrecognized practice and some typologies of urban agriculture are even treated as illegal. Urban planning has an important influence in determining the structure of a city.
