Click here to view the embedded video. Renaissance Farms is the brainchild of two friends who share a common goal: to help eliminate hunger in the USA. They’ve created an Indiegogo campaign with the hope of building a sustainable, closed-loop aquaponics farm in upcycled shipping container buildings. Fresh, healthy food, from vegetables to fish , will be produced in this complex, and for every pound of food sold to consumers, one pound will be donated to local food banks and outreach programs. These guys need our help to bring this project to life, as they aim to build the first year-round prototype farm in Texas. Right now, they’ve reached only 6 percent of their $250,000 goal, and they only have 34 days left in their campaign. If you’d like to support them, please consider donating ! + Renaissance Farm Indiegogo Campaign >   Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
