Spirulina is a species of edible single-celled blue-green algae or cyanobacteria that is particularly known for its ability to convert sunlight into green concentrated sources of protein, fatty acids, antioxidants, like phycocyanin, as well as certain vitamins and minerals. Providing a source of complete plant-based protein, it has been utilized extensively as a nutritional supplement by NASA and for treating malnutrition in developing nations. Commonly available as a bulk powder or in tablet form, it makes an ideal superfood adjunct for modern-day living because of its energizing nutrients and detoxifying compounds, both of which promote heightened mental acuity and increased immune response. We'll also discuss how this microalgae is cultivated, the controversial spirulina toxins microcystin and BMAA, and how to ensure product purity.

Watch the next episode about San Francisco becoming a zero waste city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3OA1s8-SI&list=UUJsSEDFFnMFvW9JWU6XUn0Q As urban populations continue to rise, innovators are looking beyond traditional farming as a way to feed everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources. Vertical farming is one solution that's been implemented around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LED lights that expose plants to only certain types of spectrum. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system. And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.

http://www.sendacow.org.uk/africangardensuk Keyhole Gardens are a great garden to make - here is one being built in Uganda. This organic technique is part of Send a Cow's training in sustainable agriculture and is a great home garden idea too. Keyhole gardens survive floods and arid conditions well as the raised bed holds moisture and is 'fed' grey water and compost via a central basket. Help more African families learn how to make these gardens and buy the charity gift of a Keyhole Garden for a friend at http://www.sendacowgifts.org.uk/​build-a-keyhole-garden http://www.sendacow.org.uk

Shenandoah Growers is the largest retail producer of organic herbs in the United States. They recently transformed their cultivation facility with a hybrid vertical farm and greenhouse model powered by Fluence horticulture lighting solutions. Learn more: https://fluence.science/shenandoah-growers Shenandoah said the transformation has boosted crop yields and quality while reducing land, water and fertilizer resources: "Fluence became our partners in growth in discussing what would be the ideal light for supplemental greenhouse growing. One of the reasons we went to LEDs versus less expensive high pressure sodium was we're looking at the future. We know there's less maintenance costs involved in the long term, we also know that these particular lights we can use the same amount of electricity, but we're getting a much high micromole output." Shenandoah Growers is utilizing 612 VYPR lights in their new production facility, 120 VYPR lights in their new propagation area, and 56 VYPR lights in their microgreen production. Those VYPR lights are putting out an average of 160 micromoles, compared to their high pressure sodium lights, which have approximately 75 micromoles. Shenandoah also saw improvement due to the light spectrum of the new VYPR lights. The quality enhanced, the flavonoid content enhanced, the plants were more compact, didn't stretch, and they got a much fresher, more flavorful, and higher-antioxidant content product out to their customers. See more about VYPR grow lights: https://fluence.science/technology/vypr/ Our decision was to utilize the same amount of energy, but increase our intensity of light and our spectrum of light to enhance our production. So we gain higher productivity, which means faster turnovers, which means less energy use per pot. This cuts down on our carbon footprint, it's good for the environment, and good economically. Fluence Bioengineering is an LED grow light company located in Austin, TX. For more information, visit us online at https://fluence.science
