Irvine, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
Terra Tech Corp. (OTCBB: TRTC), a leader in sustainable urban agricultural products is pleased to announce the launch of their blog focused on Urban Ag solutions and feeding our global population.
Our nation’s current agricultural system is oftentimes at odds with the health of the planet and our population. Through innovation we have the power and technology to redevelop the way the world feeds it’s population. In the early 1900’s our country was a nation of farmers, all produce and livestock were grown and processed locally out of necessity. Fast forward to today, agribusiness has completely industrialized our food system. Food production is done thousands of miles from the consumer, and often imported from outside of our country’s borders. Hydroponic and aeroponic technologies, like those manufactured by Terra Tech, can be utilized to grow on rooftops in urban settings drastically cutting emissions that result from transportation.
“The locally grown initiative is sprouting up around the globe,” says Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech. “One of the best ways to utilize urban industrial space is through hydroponic and aeroponic technologies and we intend on educating and discussing these very issues in our blog.”
Indoor agriculture reduces risk of food borne illness, eliminates the dangers of cross-pollination with GMO’s, and maximizes efficiency thus producing a safer product with a small carbon footprint. Limiting “food miles” also ensures our produce retains the nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals essential to good health.
“The purpose of our blog is to inform the public about the benefits of locally grown produce and how our current agricultural system is broken and harming our planet,” suggest Eddie Piatt, LEED certified Architect and Director at Terra Tech.
Small decisions have a huge impact when embraced globally. Terra Tech hopes their blog will help you stay informed about current events in urban Ag as well as contributing to the health of planet. Make every day Earth Day!!!!
