Relying on Ourselves
This Britta Riley Keynote Illustrates the Benefits of Window Farming

By: Andrew Robertson (Star) May 6, 12

Relying on other people to solve the situations that we encounter on a daily basis is at the core of this Britta Riley keynote. The artist and technologist behind Windowfarms.org combines open-sourced inspiration with the process of growing one’s own food in order to address the necessary shift from depending on others to depending on one’s self in order to exact the change that one wants to see in the world.

According to Riley, “growing our own food is the best thing for the environment.” Rather than depending on specialists to solve the rising crisis in the food system, people can use window farms in order to produce organic fruits and vegetables. The process provides an optimal nutritional yield and drastically reduces one’s carbon footprint.

Supporting open-sourced projects and getting behind the people who are actively improving our well-being is necessary if we want to see positive social changes.
