Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary)
Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary) Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity's symbiotic relationship with the Earth's natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development. Lester R. Brown, a prominent environmentalist and founder of the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute, describes sustainable living in the twenty-first century as "shifting to a renewable energy–based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system." In addition to this philosophy, practical eco-village builders like Living Villages maintain that the shift to renewable technologies will only be successful if the resultant built environment is attractive to a local culture and can be maintained and adapted as necessary over the generations.

How Cuban agriculture went from industrial to sustainable
In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at the history of Cuban sustainable agriculture and farming. Specifically, I look at why sustainable and organic methods, such as urban farms and market gardens, proliferated in Cuban farming, and what that might mean for farmers markets and local food systems in countries like the United States. Some of the principles of Cuban agriculture could be used to build a system in opposition to our current industrial food and factory farm system.

Sustainable forestry and woodland management practices - sustainable agroforestry in uk agriculture
The sustainable forestry initiative and sustainable forest management as part of sustainable agriculture and woodland management system and end the current system of deforestation. Sustainable forestry is desirable for the environment not least because wood is captured carbon but sustainable timber production cannot compete with the deforestation of natural woodland. Please share, like and comment to support sustainable forestry. #SustainableForestry NOW! Sustainable forest management is the management of forests according to the principles of sustainable development. Sustainable forest management has to keep the balance between three main pillars: ecological, economic and socio-cultural. Successfully achieving sustainable forest management will provide integrated benefits to all, ranging from safeguarding local livelihoods to protecting the biodiversity and ecosystems provided by forests, reducing rural poverty and mitigating some of the effects of climate change. The "Forest Principles" adopted at The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 captured the general international understanding of sustainable forest management at that time. A number of sets of criteria and indicators have since been developed to evaluate the achievement of SFM at the global, regional, country and management unit level. These were all attempts to codify and provide for independent assessment of the degree to which the broader objectives of sustainable forest management are being achieved in practice. In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Non-Legally Binding Instrument on All Types of Forests. The instrument was the first of its kind, and reflected the strong international commitment to promote implementation of sustainable forest management through a new approach that brings all stakeholders together. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainable_forest_management Support the creation of more videos like this: https://www.patreon.com/sustainablehuman This video was created as a gift to humanity by Chris and Dawn Agnos Sign up to watch more videos created by us: http://sustainablehuman.com/videos/ Official Landing Page: Coming Soon Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/SustainableMan/ You are welcome to download, repost, and share any video on this channel freely on your website or in your presentations as long as you link back to the official landing page (or to our Facebook page if uploading the video to Facebook).

“The Real Martian” Jeff Raymond Discusses Sustainable Agriculture Systems for Cold Latitudes
Jeff Raymond is developing sustainable agriculture that can be employed anywhere on the planet, including Antarctica, so it had to be able to withstand extreme winds, snow loading, and the months of darkness that are found in extreme northern and southern latitudes we started looking at how we could produce energy locally and integrate it into this system by using a biogas digester, which takes organic matter and breaks it down, turning it into methane as well as a substance called digestate, which is a liquid fertilizer that can be cycled back into our aquaponics system. Raymond and his wife began constructing the massive habitat (it measures 80 feet long by 40 feet wide by 22 feet tall) last May and began initial operations in September. There is this really big population problem on the horizon, and some reports say that by the year 2050 there's going to be 9.5 billion people on the planet. In order to feed all those people, we're going to have to increase agricultural production by over 75 percent from today. The best we can do, based on current projections, is 33 percent. ‘Follow Jeff Raymond on his YouTube Channel “The Real Martian” and his website www.therealmartian.com Make Money Now Off Weather Predictions Here - https://tradegenius.co/go/ref/23 Rid Your Body of Unwanted Toxins Now! https://www.getthetea.com Don't get caught un-prepared stock up on survival food today! http://foodforliberty.com/adapt2030 Support ADAPT 2030 on PATREON http://www.patreon.com/adapt2030 ADAPT 2030 Mini Ice Age FB Page https://www.facebook.com/Miniiceage David's Website http://www.oilseedcrops.org You can also find this Mini Ice Age Conversations podcast on iTunes, Stitcher Radio and Soundcloud.

Understanding Climate-Smart Agriculture
www.fao.org/climatechange/micca/ This video explains the climate-smart agriculture approach including its objectives and why it is needed. Climate change will hit farmers, herders and fishers the hardest. The Climate-smart agriculture approach promotes the development of the technical, policy and investment conditions to achieve sustainable agricultural development for food security under a changing climate. It seeks to: increase sustainably agricultural productivity and incomes, help adapt and build resilience to climate change impacts and wherever possible, reduces and/or removes greenhouse gases. To make climate-smart agriculture a reality we need to: expand the evidence base; improve policies; empower local institutions; and combine new financing options. Let’s make sure our agriculture is productive and sustainable for generations to come. © FAO: http://www.fao.org

Consultation on the Food and Agriculture Business Principles, Brussels
The Consultation on the Food and Agriculture Business Principles (FAB Principles) was hosted by Paolo De Castro, Chair of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Parliament, in Brussels on 11 February 2014. To advance the positive impact that business can have on sustainable agriculture, the UN Global Compact is facilitating the development of voluntary FAB Principles in collaboration with the private sector, key civil society organizations and experts. The FAB Principles will articulate a common understanding on the resources, ecosystem services and socio-economic impacts needed to build resilience into agricultural supply systems and the markets that they serve. The Principles will support the objectives of relevant UN agencies by offering a basis for responsible businesses to align to the goals of the UN as articulated in the Rio+20 outcome document "The Future We Want", and provide a framework for furthering good practices, and for developing effective private and public sector policies and partnerships. The Principles, and knowledge arising from the process that generate them, will underpin the UN Global Compact's submission on the theme of 'Food Security and Nutrition' in the post-2015 development agenda.

Learn how to become an organic farmer - Sustainable Farming at Fickle Creek Farm North Carolina
Learn how to become an organic farmer - Sustainable Farming at Fickle Creek Farm North Carolina Learn how to make $100,000 a year farming land you don't own in Curtis Stones "The Urban Farmer" http://amzn.to/1TpwsEA Fickle Creek Farm is a diversified, small-scale farm in the Piedmont of North Carolina. It utilizea approximately half of the farm’s 215 acres to provide farm-fresh, healthy food to our community through careful environmental stewardship, sustainable practices, and humane animal treatment. Vegetables and fruit are naturally grown without synthetic chemical inputs. Livestock is raised without use of antibiotics or hormones. Chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs range freely on pesticide-free pastures and in woods and are fed locally-milled, vegetarian feed. Cows and sheep are raised on pesticide-free pastures. They share the farm with others through farm tours and a farm-stay accommodation. Nutrient Cycling is vital to the health of our farm and is used to minimize external nutrient inputs to the farm and avoid nutrient loss into surface and ground water. Pictured is one of our steers grazing a rye-crimson clover cover crop on the market garden area. Biodiversity and natural ecosystem processes are conserved through Agroforestry. The farm benefits through enhanced beauty and by maintaining trees that are good for honey production, shading our chickens and livestock, eliminating erosion, and minimizing our need for grid power to heat or cool our home. Pictured is sourwood - a favorite tree of bees. We use Rotational Grazing for all of our animals; Our chickens and livestock are frequently moved to clean and nutritious paddocks on our farm. This picture shows how steers are followed by sheep which are followed by laying hens. Adhering to Permaculture principles means that each part of our diverse farm benefits from and is a benefit to several other pieces of our overall operation. Pictured is our pigs benefiting from the output from our market garden. For more information visit www.ficklecreekfarm.com There are twenty million acres of lawns in North America. In their current form, these unproductive expanses of grass represent a significant financial and environmental cost. However, viewed through a different lens, they can also be seen as a tremendous source of opportunity. Access to land is a major barrier for many people who want to enter the agricultural sector, and urban and suburban yards have huge potential for would-be farmers wanting to become part of this growing movement. This video will to help you learn the techniques and business strategies you need to make a good living growing high-yield, high-value crops right in your own backyard (or someone else's). Major benefits include: Low capital investment and overhead costs Reduced need for expensive infrastructure Easy access to markets Growing food in the city means that fresh crops may travel only a few blocks from field to table, making this innovative approach the next logical step in the local food movement. Based on a scalable, easily reproduced business model, becoming an Urban Farmer is your opportunity to minimizing risk and maximizing profit by using intensive production in small leased or borrowed spaces.

Living Mulch Sustainable Farming near Missoula
http://www.permies.com Helen Atthowe, Missoula County Horticulturist (1995-2010) http://www.veganicpermaculture.com speaks about a variety of experiments with living mulch. She covers minimum till, no till and full till. Helen talks about creating beneficial insect habitats: bees, parasitic wasps, (in april she was experiencing a 1-to-1 ratio of parasitized aphids to non parasitized aphids), spiders, ground beetles ... Broccoli, brussel sprouts and cabbage yields are explored. Using three foot wide raised beds. The minimum till was done with a single shank chisel plow followed by a light tilling with a tiller/rotovator. Living mulches experimented with include clover which contributes nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, but also competes with the production crop. The trick is to find the balance and get the best of all worlds. Podcast with Helen talking about soil http://www.permies.com/t/19840/podcast-soil-science Music by Jimmy Pardo

Natuurboerdery: Sustainable Production
The magnificent sustainability of ecosystem-cycles is rooted in two principles. The principle of cycling which requires that everything that is taken out, is put back; and the principle of balance, which allows nothing to proliferate out of control. To ZZ2 this means that the Natuurboerdery farming philosophy is followed to produce environmentally sensitive and sustainable food without harmful chemical residues.

Cows, Carbon and Climate | Joel Salatin | TEDxCharlottesville
Joel Salatin, an organic farmer located in the Shanendoah Valley in Virginia, loves his grass - and so do his cows. In this talk Salatin outlines the role that this often unsung hero of the plant world plays in sustainable farming, and the effects that its efficient utilization can have on the world around us. Joel Salatin is a third generation beyond organic farmer and author whose family owns and operates Polyface Farm in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The farm produces salad bar beef, pigaerator pork, pastured poultry, forage-based rabbits and direct markets everything to 5,000 families, 50 restaurants, and 10 retail outlets. A prolific author, Salatin's nine books to date include both how-to and big picture themes. The farm features prominently in Michael Pollan's NYT bestseller Omnivore's Dilemma and the award-winning documentary, Food Inc. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

How I use Permaculture Principals to Grow More Food my Small Garden
I have used some of the concepts and principles in permaculture to build my garden and the practices I use. Central to my gardening methods are the principals of permanent agriculture through the use of perennials [2] and sustainable methods of food production [3]. Many of the principles I use in my garden are inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka the author of The One-Straw Revolution and his do-nothing farming where by one grows food with the least amount of effort while avoiding the use of manufactured inputs. Many of you have already heard this already on my good friend Patrick’s channel in fact the method and book inspired his channel’s name One Yard Revolution. [4] Today I am going to go through how I have implemented some of these principals in my garden and working to research and test the methods and practices to see if science supports their use. I started in gardening much like many of you. I wanted to garden organically so I purchased organic products and followed methods similar to conventional large scale farming. Following a number of conversations with my parents, grandparents and finally the YouTube community I was inspired to investigate the principals of sustainable gardening and was interested to see if it could be done in my northern growing zone. As I began investigating these principles I liked the idea that this method of food production was more environmentally friendly while producing more food than I was able to previously. I did find abandoning practices I had used for years tough. When abandoning a practice I was worried the new method would lead to a failure and I would lose the crop for the year. In order to help the transition I started by testing the new method on a small patch to see what happened. I started adding perennials to the garden. This took a few years and some planning to maximize the use of the space I have dedicated to this. I took roughly equal shares between annual beds, trial beds and perennial beds. The central beds are dedicated to annuals with the trial beds immediately adjacent and the perennial beds on the perimeter. To date I have added 33 varieties of 12 different crops and continue to look for other crops to add in including this rhubarb plant that my parents took from their patch to bring to me. In order to produce as much food as possible in a sustainable method I have organized my plants by size and nutritional requirements. I have chosen to plant larger trees and shrubs outside of the garden directly in my native soil. Their extensive root networks often extending 1.5 – 2x larger than the diameter of the tree are able to seek out and find the nutrients they require. This allows me to plant them in areas Check us out on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/stephenlegaree14 Webpage: www.albertaurbangarden.ca Google +: google.com/+StephenLegaree Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AlbertaUrbanGarden Twitter: https://twitter.com/northern1485 Pintrest: http://www.pinterest.com/ABurbanGarden/

Sustainable Farming Practices Through Nutricert | Amway
The Nutrilite sustainable farming practices Carl Rehnborg developed in the early 1940’s continues to set the standards for Nutricert™ suppliers today. “At Nutrilite growing our own plant materials using sustainable and organic farming methods really speaks to our commitment to quality.” – Audra Davis, Vice-President of Nutrition Product Development, Nutrilite. “As Nutrilite’s product portfolio was expanding, we recognized that we couldn’t grow every plant material that we were intending to use in our Nutrilite products around the world. We needed a certification program that we could work with growers around the world to ensure that they were growing materials to the same quality standards that we use on Nutrilite farms. So we implemented a formal inspection and certification process that we call Nutricert.” The Nutricert™ program ensures that all Nutrilite suppliers are guided by organic, sustainable principles. “It typically takes about 3 years for one of our growers to attain that Nutricert status. Once a grower achieves that status, we work with them regularly with audits and facility visits throughout the year to ensure that they are at the same standard that we use for Nutrilite grown products.” Nutrilite strives to source the best of nature from around the world through the Nutricert™ program. Nutrilite is the #1 selling brand of vitamins and dietary supplements.

Farm Data Train - FAIR data principles in agriculture
The Farm Data Train, a short video explaining the importance of connecting data and data sources, to make them more usable for improved farm management and research aimed at further improvement. Making the data into FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. This animation video is produced with Dutch Techcentre for Lifesciences (DTL), CABI, Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) and Wageningen University and Research and was launched during the GODAN High Level Forum at GFIA Europe. The Farm Data Train’s main goal is connecting farm data to make them more useable. Modern farm management requires ever increasing amounts of farm data. But today, this information can not easily be used because the data are produced and managed by various manufacturers of machines, authorities, and more and more by farmers themselves. These stakeholders collect and manage their data in different ways, making the data hard to find and use. Furthermore, specific farm information is often very business critical. As a consequence farm data cannot be used easily by farmers themselves, nor by agronomists and researchers. The Farm Data Train goes to the root of this problem by building FAIR Data Stations. FAIR protocols ensure that data are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. These Data Stations are connected by tracks, which are strictly secured and protected. FAIR Data Trains are constantly monitored and only trains with the appropriate validation may enter a particular station. To secure privacy, every Data Station has rules. Each data owner has access to his or her secured Station and can easily request and control one’s farm information. In addition, the owner can set rules for who can access the data and how it may be used. Communities with common interests, like farm cooperatives, can choose to connect and organize their information through Umbrella Stations. With this access a researcher can learn, for example, which crop variety will grow best under certain crop management at different locations. Or a crop breeder who wants to breed a climate resilient/robust variety will be automatically alerted when new research results, insights or possible risks become available. In this approach the information is accessible for management, research and education without the data ever ‘leaving the station’. The Farm Data Train takes farm specific crop management to a whole new level with the farmer in full control of his or her data!

The Pros and Cons of Organic Farming | Biology  for All | FuseSchool
In this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhOrIUlrnPo) we looked at the key principles of organic farming - the use of more natural alternatives instead of chemical fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides or feed additives for livestock. This all sounds great, but there is more to the story. Organic farming isn’t all good. The yields are lower because more produce is damaged by pests, and carefully selected chemical pesticides cannot be used. With an ever-growing world population, we have limited land to feed everyone from. So should we therefore just focus on maximising yields? Or to get the same yields, more land would need to be farmed. Where would this surplus land come from - cutting down our remaining forests and rainforests? This would be far worse for the environment both in terms of climate change and biodiversity. A study in the UK found that a litre of organic milk requires 80% more land than conventional milk to produce. That’s a lot more land, and makes you wonder whether organic foods are a luxury the world just cannot afford to provide. Interestingly, it has been found that some organic farming methods require more water than non-organic alternatives; a huge problem as droughts become more regular and water more scarce. Organic is not necessarily better for the environment either. Organic dairy farms do actually produce more methane per cow than conventional farms because of the diet of the cattle: organic cows apparently burp twice as much as conventional cows!! As methane is a greenhouse gas, this does not bode well for global warming. You also need to consider the airmiles of your produce… in the UK most of the organic food is imported, so if there is a conventionally farmed alternative from a local source then it may be better for the environment to opt for that product. Scientists are still fiercely debating whether conventional or organic farming has a larger environmental footprint; so I am not expecting you to have a clear opinion either! It is actually a big misconception that organic farms cannot use any pesticides; they can because without them, the crop yields would be much too low for the farm to be sustained. Organic farmers can use both synthetic and natural kinds of pesticides, but some of the regular pesticide chemicals are banned on organic farms. As fewer chemicals are used, there is less risk of chemicals remaining on the food, which can only be a good thing for consumers. Scientists are still debating the pros and cons of organic farming in comparison to conventional farming, and there is plenty of information you can read online. The tricky part is that most articles are very biased so don’t be swayed by the first article you read. The principles of organic farming are obviously very good for the environment, but in reality yields matter. There is a balance to be found between looking after our soils and environment, and so employing organic strategies such as crop rotations, but having a limited amount of agricultural land and an ever-growing population. Many conventional farmers employ organic strategies to do their best for the soil structure and local biodiversity, but make use of chemicals in the lowest levels possible whilst still maintaining yields.
