A prototype of the IFEWS has been built in Germany and currently produces fish and vegetables with zero energy inputs. An amazing piece of riverfront property has been secured in the St. John's region of North Portland. It's time to scale the prototype up, to put together the all of the technological elements, and to run the system in a real world scenario. It's time to remove thirty Portland residents from the modern industrial farming and food production machine. Maybe thirty people doesn't sound like much. But it's a huge step in the right direction. A step that has not yet been taken. Our goal: all nutritional needs for thirty people, a small community, produced within the community- fresh food twelve months a year AND all power needed to operate the system produced by the system itself. This is a distinct evolution in food production with an enormous reduction of negative impacts for the environment. When we build the system, when we set it in motion and it starts to hum, then the next IFEWS can come to your community.
