Food has to be a sustainable solution that all nations face as a critical need.  The way we produce food will undoubtedly be the difference between health and the lack of health.  Those who are seeking new grow methods for food are important to the health and life continuum.  The work of  “New Houweling’s greenhouse demonstrates sustainable technology partnership” with private and public concerns may repurpose the tomato.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and Houweling’s Tomatoes announced that the company will build a new, environmentally friendly greenhouse tomato farm in Juab County that will create more than 280 new jobs. The Utah facility will employ state of the art climate control and sustainability technology. It will be heated with waste heat from a nearby natural gas fired electrical generation facility, enabling Houweling to operate with a very low carbon footprint. Additionally, the facility will utilize waste CO2 off the generators stack to provide CO2 fertilization to tomato crops. PacifiCorp Energy is the owner/operator of the Currant Creek Power Plant, and Rocky Mountain Power will be supplying the electricity for Houweling’s operations,” reports Fresh Plaza.

As we consider the importance of food grow, development and harvest it has to be a sustainable solution. The demand for healthy foods to meet growing population demands will have to engage in a tipping point where there will be a demand or surplus for food based on environment or population.

The emphasis on collaboration and partnerships to solve world problems may be one step to solving hunger and health concerns.  Further, innovation and collaboration can produce the needed jobs in developing sciences.  The work of Casey can be a win in agriculture.
