Farm of the Future:
Wildlife film maker Rebecca Hosking investigates how to transform her family's farm in Devon into a low energy farm for the future
Cute film highlighting the impossibility of continuing to base food production on petrochemicals, and looking at some of the green technologies that may help address the problem.
Mucuna pruriens
Annual bean.
I'm not sure how annual it is, my plants seem to be sprouting from the roots again, after harvesting the beans (that is only a 3 or 4 month season, so maybe there are a few months to go).
Basis of the green revolution in South America, grown with sweet corn producing a deep no dig leaf mulch, into which sweetcorn can be directly sown, seeds for eating, "Nescafe" for drinking and roots add nitrogen to the soil. Another plant that is saving the world. The problem with this plant is the annoyingly urticating hairs
Mucuna pruriens v utilis
Mucuna pruriens "CowItch" without the itch.
Psophocarpus tetragonolobus
"Winged Bean", probably the best nitrogen fixing plant - all parts edible, easy to grow, decorative - temperate or tropical.
