Biologist Dr. Daniel Botkin has traveled the world to learn more about nature in balance and nature in adaptation. From moose in the far North, elephants in Africa, bowhead whales in northern oceans to the forest in North and Central America, he’s examined nature undisturbed. He also studies human interaction with nature and our impact on the environment.

Thursday August 27, 2009 | Agriburbia

August 26, 2009 at 8:41 am | Posted in Coming Up | 12 Comments

Much of Charlotte’s recent housing projects are focused uptown and along the light rail line but an entirely different type of development called “Agriburbia” is sprouting up here and in other places in America. Agriburbia represents neighborhoods built in the suburbs with a large central farm and small farm plots in the yards of each home. The inventor of Agriburbia joins us to describe this growing movement to create a nation of small farms.
