New farmer goes green

Why wouldn’t farmers grow soil enriching legumes instead of using energy consuming fertilizers? Why wouldn’t we — all! — buy ecological local beans and other legumes to help farmers go green? Professor Kristina Lindström’s Helsinki Challenge team “Ground and Growth” aims at co-creation of knowledge, visions and future directions for sustainable agriculture in an interactive innovation platform process.
