Why we need a North American Passport

CNN - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 12:57pm
The future of the United States lies in North America. This is not a geographic truism, but a strategic imperative. Generations of Americans, distracted by far-flung crises, have long taken our own region for granted. This must change if the 21st century is to be an American century. The United States, Canada and Mexico are bound by a shared economic, environmental, demographic and cultural destiny. How we move forward together is key to our success.

Garden Project Spreads Its Roots in Urban Areas

Lifestyles - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 11:41am
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - It's not easy being green -- especially when you share space with more than 3 million people. And yet, one Southern California business is making it easier.

BP Gardens, a subsidiary of GreenGro Technologies (OTC: GNRH), an Anaheim-based eco-friendly technology company, is taking local farming in a crowded urban environment to a whole new level by designing vertical gardens. Its hope, says GreenGro CEO James Haas, is to provide local communities, restaurants and grocers with locally grown, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables.

BP Gardens began as the seed of an idea from Haas. The thought, he says, was to use as little water and energy as possible, while still yielding fresh, locally grown produce and herbs for customers.

According to Haas, there will be two separate locations and growing methods. BP Gardens Buena Park currently sits on 4.5 acres in Anaheim, California, and features a 5,000-seat full hydroponic grow system, while its sister company, BP Lincoln Gardens in northern California, employs a zero-waste, 80 percent water-saving aquaponics solution with a 40,000-seat capacity.

"With California consistently facing severe droughts, these systems will help change the way we grow [food], modernizing its processes to become more sustainable for the future," says Haas.

Currently, Buena Park has completed its construction and has planted its first crops, which is ideal for leafy greens, while Lincoln is in the process of installing floating raceways and introducing fish in preparation for its first crops. This location will focus on the growth of heavy greens and Sacramento Perch for its customers. Between the two structures, Haas said he anticipates growing 45,000 heads of lettuce a month.

In addition to finding a way to combine technology and food production while reducing the company's own carbon footprint, Haas has also stumbled on a niche market in the medical marijuana industry. While GreenGro does not participate in the sale of medical marijuana, Haas said GreenGro's equipment and advanced hydroponic systems benefit that business as well.

Although Haas estimates that about 60 percent of his customers buy his gardening equipment to grow medical marijuana, he says he is focused on his BP Gardens projects, and isn't content to stop with the California market, but believes he can take his idea worldwide.

"BP Gardens wants to go big," says Haas. "We want to be the source for food and not have to have it travel, and save the Earth."
