The game plan to Sustain the Universe of 9 billion people on Earth. / Published October 28, 2014 by Alan Joshua Greenspan

The game plan to Sustain the Universe of 9 billion people on Earth.

Multiple tier business model:
Business model: Our first target market is NPOs and schools, because they would require the least amount of convincing to allow us to use their unused wall/courtyard/roof space. We also can get in touch with first movers, or people already in the community of organic and home gardening.

After this, we can contact warehouse owners and real estate agencies, and offer them a small % revenue on the location they sponsor.

Finally, once a nice network is set up, we can enter the main stream and target restaurants, condos, whole foods stores, and launch a nice social media campaign with rewards system.

Physical model:
Tier 1: DIY, for schools or owners themselves to create and manage, requires just water bottles and a simple water pump

Tier 2: The basic UVAF system made of PVC pipe and garbage cans, and perhaps a trellis.

Tier 3: Advanced system for business owners, includes using a nice aquarium and a beautiful planter for the plants or vegetables, maybe even a trellis.

All tiers may use solar panels (and wind turbines) with a battery storage device, whether it be recycling old car batteries or new efficient ones.
People who wish to grow algae 24/7 could add super efficient LED lights.

Next: We make a website/App system where people sign up and choose whether or not they want to 'rent' us their wasted space, and we provide them a kickback on any revenue generated, and whether they want to be included in an open community initiative.
If they want to join the community, they can opt in to allow others to tend the garden for them, such as people in need, and can even join the super club, where when the garden is ready for harvesting, the App shows their location on a map and anyone can come when they 'light up their location' to show they are available, and can exchange 'points' for food.
Each partner can also choose which vegetables, fruits, and fish they want to grow, and will be mentored in which can ideally work with the location and temperature.
With a decentralized growing system, we can maximize the variety of produce and include full algae growing systems as well to provide sustainable food and fertilizer.
Even simple compost locations can be set up for discarding wasted food.

Of course we would also partner with local experts in aquaponics and permaculture, even algae companies, to not only create a better community, but to spread the knowledge, and eventually offer more jobs to people.

Our Mission

vertical aquaponic systems in urban areas, including algae, creating a network accessible like Uber, for the exchange of food produce, and donating to people in need. We aren't just any average urban vertical farm promoter, we are utilizing the wasted space in society today. We are maximizing the opportunity of leveraging walls, courtyards, and rooftops to not only sustainably grow fruits, vegetables, and algae, but by doing so can also reduce the energy required to heat and cool homes. Since we want to be completely sustainable, solar panels can be used to not only power the aquaponic system and provide shade for the fauna, but can also offer more energy savings for the home. The best part of this system? Slowly teaching people about the exponential benefits of algae!

Our Background

Alan Greenspan studied sustainability in university, and has been interested in helping the world since a wee little boy, and he knows not why but how. Everyone else are just super amazing people looking to make the world a better place.
