In this episode of The Trip for Life, I continue my exploration of the methods that Growing Power, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, uses to grow enough food to feed many thousands of people in a couple of acres. In the last episode, I showed you how they produce the high quality soils that they need for their plants; in this episode, I will explain how they manage water, in both the fish ponds and the aquaponics beds, and how they grow their massive crop of food plants. I will also be talking about some of their experiments in integrating more traditional animal husbandry into the Growing Power system. And, you will get to see their bee yard, and future plans. An info-packed episode of The Trip for Life, a must see for anyone who wants to build a high intensity urban farm for themselves!
