Come learn about innovative ways that people grow food in urban areas. We shall view several videos about unconventional ways of growing food, that not only make efficient use of resources and reduce waste, but also deliver fresh, high-quality produce to urban consumers.

We shall learn about the role of aquaponics in the future of our food supply from Charlie Price, of the social enterprise Aquaponics UK, and take a virtual tour of Ouroborosfarms in Half Moon Bay.

Then Pui-Kwan Chu will talk of how she got started with urban gardening projects in Hong Kong, a city of 7 million people, so that people can get some real food.

Stuart Oda, Co-Founder of Alesca Life, will tell us how he hopes to revolutionize the agricultural industry by means of urban farming inside of shipping containers, bringing food security and food safety to the masses, and also ending the environmental degradation incurred by today’s industrial agriculture.

Healing Light

A Presentation and Video By Mei-Ling Shek

Vielight Neuro Transcranial Photobiomodulation HelmetLow-level visible or near infrared light has therapeutic uses. It can improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Called photo-biomodulation, it has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain. Over 300 randomized clinical trials have been published, half of which are on pain.

First we shall watch an overview of photo-biomodulation and low level light therapy presented by James of Thor LLLT at the United Nations Global Health Impact Forum. Then he will give an introduction to the treatment for Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD).

Next will be a groundbreaking webinar on photo-biomodulation that aired during the World Summit of Integrative Medicine 2015.  Dr Lew Lim and leading scientists from Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Medicine, share their insights about the positive effects of low level light therapy (photo-biomodulation) on the body and brain at the cellular level.

Join us for this very interesting session!
