Are We There Yet?

If on 9-11-2001, had terrorists flown airplanes into the petroleum tank farm located in west Greensboro, another in New Jersey and perhaps a refinery or two instead of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a rural area in western Pennsylvania we would have experienced a food disruption that would have starved millions of people to death and completely destroyed the World economy. Every truck in the nation would have been out of fuel and every grocery store empty in 3 days tops. Instead they chose to make a political statement rather than win the war outright. It's time we prepared ourselves so that the next strike isn't their final blow. After all, even the Preppers won't be able to fight off hordes of starving and desperate people. And with a little common sense and local investment that day will never come.

I won't name names but I'm currently in conversations with several well known Greensboro business and community leaders who are interested in investing in a new type of Aquaponics that I have come up with on my own. I'm doing this not for myself but to bring economic development to Greensboro as a whole, starting in Greensboro's poorest neighborhoods inside our city where jobs are needed the most while providing an infrastructure that will allow Aquaponics operations from the small backyard hobbyist to the large scale Aquaponics farmer to set up operations anywhere in the Piedmont Triad and become successful.

Imagine your favorite fish, crayfish and even some seafoods grown locally, year 'round right here in Greensboro, served fresh the same day they're pulled from the pond or tank. Imagine Greensboro becoming an exporter of food, fish and vegetables, instead of an importer. Imaging knowing your food is safe and where it comes from and knowing Greensboro's food is the best in the world bar none.

So what's it going to take to get these business leaders and community leaders to reach into their wallets and walk out on political limbs to make this happen? They have to believe there is enough support and enthusiasm in Greensboro to make this venture profitable. They are, after all, business people. If you'd like to become involved, invest, show your enthusiasm or learn more then subscribe to my newsletter. I'm doing Aquaponics in tanks in my back yard but on my own I'll never be able to feed all of you.
