I love the impact of tech on food production and figure we haven’t seen anything yet.
Saw this on kickstarter today :: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/451425606/sproutsio-smart-microgarden
I look forward to the days I could buy some unit and put it in my closet and grow fresh veggies using less water and power than growing them normally does.
It reminded me of a tour I had the other day of Sustenir :: http://www.susteniragriculture.com/ . Was killer to see what these guys are doing, see the process and taste some of the goodies. I won’t say much more than that but this type of stuff is the beginning of changing our food chain, reduce the need for imports and it will grow stuff without a lot of chemicals, plus it uses much less water.
That kale was damn tasty.
The world is a troublesome place and I don’t think tech is the saviour but I do feel that tech can help keep us on earth without totally destroying it. It’s also super awesome as a VC to get to explore this stuff while I learn about how capital can help fuel the positive tech changes in our lives.
