Mission Transition Podcast Interview: Matthias Zapatal
When thinking about moving to a clean energy economy, we often think in terms of replacing what we have now with a cleaner version of energy.
For example, many people believe the best solution to huge gas guzzling trucks is to make huge electricity guzzling trucks.
In Episode 5: Who Owns Our Power? we talk about ways to change our thinking so we consume less electricity overall. One strategy is to eat food grown close to home, in order to avoid trucking fresh produce from the south to the north.
In this bonus interview, Susan Elrington visits Matthias Zapatal at Northern Bioponics in Prince George. Matthias is using aquaponics to grow lettuce all year around and explains how his system could work to feed Prince George through the long cold winter months.
