Back To The Future !!!

Posted on October 28, 2013 at 8:21am 0 Comments

 As you will note, our earliest entries regarding Aquaponic growing of food and protein go back to the founding days of Development Crossing.   It has been five years since we began this journey.  It has NOT been easy as we pose an innovative and disruptive solution to food security.  This is not an accepted, or popular effort as the status quo would not like to see such people centric solutions implemented.

However, finally, after five years of struggle we are on the verge of…


Aquaponics - The Future of Food

Growfish is now ...The Family Fish Farms Network, Inc  

As the food crisis increases and the demand for fresh local food increases, we have decided to move from the  ranks of the non profit to a fully functional stock corporation.  Last week we formed FFFN as a "C" Corporation under the laws of the State of Delaware.  We are now free to raise funds and compete in the market for ideas and opportunity.   FFFN plans to change the way food is grown, distributed,…

Sustainable Food Security

As a technical consultant to the MicroFinance sector, I found this company doing research for a client.

GrowFish is a techno solution to the impending food crisis in Africa and elsewhere. There are 36 countries on the "danger" list from the UN. 24 of these are in Africa. Growfish enables a village or small group in urban, peri urban, or rural communities to grow both high quality protein and a bumper crop of organic healthy vegetables. The system can be build locally from a set of… Continue

Your words "I am dedicated to the goal of economic and social justice, to the right of productive work fairly compensated, and to the right of all people to participate fully in the economic and social life of their communities" strike a responsive chord in my psyche. I would request you to find time to go through the discussion I initiated on the role of government servants in developing countries.You may find in it my perception of government service. That orientation should be relevant for the people working in NGOs as well. It is another matter that your and my experience has been rather disappointing though dedicated NGOs have achieved spectacular results.
Looking forward to regular ineractions.

Good morning from Manila! I just got a note from Neil that you're interested in partnering w/ devt experts here, who may be interested in aquaponics intervention for small fishers. I shld want to invite you to my circle of friends, but the network says "You have reached the limit of 100 outstanding invitations" phrase. My involvement w/ the food sectors goes back to the early 80s yet, and I already uploaded dozens of materials about my devt experiences in the field, though agri isnt my only devt concern. I'm more into public policy and reform of institutions at the national level today, my latest output being the book FAIR TRADE AND FOOD SECURITY: FRAMEWORK AND POLICY ARCHITECTURE (see websites of KAISAMPALAD and MODE Philippines). Okey, will email you later, good day!
