The Green Friendship Bridge Part 8

If we built a Green Friendship Bridge composed of 8,600 algae microfarms given to Mexican and Central American farmers in lieu of 1%, (13 miles) of additional border wall, what environmental benefits would accrue? NAFTA and U.S. farm subsidies artificially reduced crop prices lower than Mexican farmers could produce…

The Green Friendship Bridge Part 6

The Green Friendship Bridge project proposes to shift the money required to construct 13 miles of additional border wall (only 0.7% of the unfinished wall) and instead build 8,600 algae microfarms. These high-value, low cost microfarms will be given to Mexican and Central American farmers. The microfarms…

The Green Friendship Bridge Series Part 5

The Green Friendship Bridge project proposes building algae microfarms that will be sprinkled across Mexico and Central America. The microfarms will enable farmers and families to grow algae-based food, feed, biofertilizers and healthy nutritional products locally on tiny land footprints so they can stay in their homes and…

What foods can algae microfarms grow?

The Green Friendship Bridge project focuses on enabling microfarmers throughout Mexico and Central America to grow food locally so they do not have to migrate north. The initial training will use spirulina because it is easy to grow, harvest, and make into a wide variety of foods. The next question is: “What is the range…

The Green Friendship Bridge Series

The Green Friendship Bridge series examines a simple question: “What makes better sense, extending the border wall with Mexico 1,300 miles or taking 13 miles of fence investment to build 8,600 algae microfarms and sprinkle them throughout Mexico and Central America?”…
