Continental Organics

Continental Organics

Continental Organics, an expanding business bringing new meaning to the concept of local food by raising tilapia and coho salmon in an “aquaponics” system that also generates year-round greens, tomatoes and rich compost.

I shot this video on Monday to show during a lecture at a University of Illinois conference exploring how to feed 9 billion people by 2050 or so with the fewest environmental regrets.

I noted the need for variegated approaches to agriculture, including a mix of technology and tradition. I’ll post on my talk soon.

Disclosure note | Mike Finnegan, our guide and a co-founder of Continental Organics, is a longtime acquaintance and neighbor.
