Growing greens in the Arctic | DW Documentary SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : In Spitsbergen, one of the northern-most populated areas inside the Arctic Circle, American Benjamin Vidmar is attempting the unthinkable.
On an island that is dark for three months of the year, he’s growing fresh vegetables for the local community. enjamin Vidmar has worked all over the world as a chef. It was something of a coincidence that he ended up on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, in the Arctic Circle. Because he wanted to have fresh vegetables, he built a special domed-shaped greenhouse and developed his own composting system. His aim is to provide fresh, locally sourced food for the community along with a sustainable waste disposal system – developing global solutions for food production in the process. Now he wants to open his own restaurant which is to operate without producing any waste. A report by Axel Rowohlt. ——————————————————————–
