Throughout the year he grows some 80 different types of fruits and vegetables along with rice and wheat. His produce is popular with consumers who worry about the use of chemicals in agriculture. Mr. Kaneko feeds his livestock with weeds and vegetable scraps. The animals provide eggs and milk for the dinner table, and manure which plays a vital role as compost. The manure from his cows even provides methane gas, which he uses as cooking fuel in his home. It's placed in a fermentation vat underground.

Micro-organisms are added to break it down and create gas. In winter, when the micro-organisms are less active, a solar heater warms the vat to encourage decomposition. The methane gas is then piped from the vat to the farmhouse kitchen. The gas is similar in quality to that found in the city. After all the methane gas has been released, the liquid by-product from the decomposed manure is spread on the fields as fertilizer. Mr Kaneko enjoys a lifestyle that provides a comfortable relationship with nature. He is frequently visited by students coming to learn about organic farming. He also uses solar generated electricity and wind energy to power water pumps on his farm. And he re-cycles cooking oil as fuel for diesel engines.

As soon as you put down soil and vegetation on the roof top, you will have evaporation. And that evaporation can absorb heat from the atmosphere and therefore cool down the air.

And the most effective way to tackle it in our compact city is to green it. But then at the ground level, we have very limited spaces for greening, and therefore, we should make the best use of the roof tops."

Wide of street, bus passing LEADIN: In a city as densely populated as Hong Kong, living space is hard to come by, let alone space to grow plants and vegetables. But those keen to see a bit more green in this concrete jungle are now setting their sights high by creating roof top farms. STORYLINE: People living and working in Hong Kong are becoming more and more aware of the environment around them. To help turn the city a little more green, elements of traditional farms are being brought to the roof tops of buildings. This kind of farming is not only seen as being beneficial to the environment, but also a way to relieve stress and gain satisfaction from harvesting crops. "It is good for the whole city," says Lam.

The farm cannot solely depend on the mass production of organic vegetables, which are sold to supermarkets, vegetable stores and customers' homes. Besides selling vegetables, it also prepares activities for students and visitors. There are about 18,000 young visitors learning about farming last year -- getting their hands dirty, planting, harvesting and finding out about organic produce. The aim is to promote the link between healthy living and the environment. Wong Tin Sang, HKFYG manager, said his farm generates incomes from educational tour and mass production. However, he added it is difficult to make profit regularly.

Close, lettuce in basket LEAD IN A series of food scares on mainland China have boosted sales of organic foods in Hong Kong. Organic production only began in 1988 but farmers are now breaking even. STORYLINE Cheung Din-hung and his colleague are picking organic vegetables in their field at Happy Organic Farm. Din-hung used to have an office job, but he wanted to do his bit for the environment. He rents around five thousand square feet of land in Hong Kong's Tuen Mun district, where he produces organic fruits and vegetables. Mainland China has a very cheap vegetable production and products reach Hong Kong customers at a fraction of Din-hung's prices. But quality issues and recent health scandals have encouraged organic farming. Organic farming has its own tricks and methods.

Watch the next episode about San Francisco becoming a zero waste city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3OA1s8-SI&list=UUJsSEDFFnMFvW9JWU6XUn0Q As urban populations continue to rise, innovators are looking beyond traditional farming as a way to feed everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources. Vertical farming is one solution that's been implemented around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LED lights that expose plants to only certain types of spectrum. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system. And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.
