Here at the Center for Ecolonomic Excellence and Development (CEED) and Nourish the Planet (NTP) we are excited to be doing daytime “Huddles” for our staff, interns, alumni and guests every FIRST and THIRD Wednesday of every month.
Our next live webinar will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, at 01:00 PM MST. It will be live for our audience at the NTT/CEED headquarters and also over the web.
We will be joined by our webinar guest Robert Zimdahl, a retired Professor of Weed Science (37 years at CSU), Dept. of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management, and the author of 14 books including Agriculture’s Ethical Horizon (2012). Robert is presently a peasant farmer. He earned his BS and MS from Cornell University and his PhD from Oregon State University. He has lived in three foreign countries and traveled in 40+ other countries.

Introduction to CEED/NTP
Chances are if you’ve found Nourish the Planet, it’s because you’re asking some big questions. Questions like: How do we feed 8 billion people by 2030? How can we heal a broken economic system? How can we live sustainably on a planet with fewer and fewer resources? What can I do about it?
We think there’s a fundamental and elegant answer to these questions – sustainable agriculture. Or more simply put, food. At Nourish the Planet, we are pioneering low-tech, replicable, sustainable methods for all types of food production. Our team is constantly developing new and exciting innovations in the realm of sustainable agriculture. Our two campuses have greenhouses, converted warehouses, pastures, farm fields, urban lots, and other infrastructure that are used to test these new innovations and to improve methods. Our focus is in aquaponics, aquaculture, vermiculture and sustainable ranching; but our larger vision is to produce food in a way that is environmentally nurturing and economically sound.
If we are going to enable ecopreneurs to Teach the World to Feed Itself, we have to provide opportunities to teach. One dollar out of every four that is generated by NTP’s Programs will go to our HOPE (Helping Other People Ecolonomically) for the Hopeless program where we help local community groups and distant hungry people groups to learn how to feed themselves.

Nourish the Planet is launching a business accelerator that will change the face of education and ecopreneurship. We call it The Best of the BEST (Best Ecolonomic Student Training) Entrepreneurial Program (BOTB). These fellows will embark on an intensive one year program with the goal of having a cash flowing, low-tech green business upon completion. Read more…
