MESA NONPROFIT GARDEN POOL TO PARTICIPATE IN GODAN SUMMIT

Local federally recognized 501c(3) international public charity, Garden Pool, will be sharing their mission of sustainable food system education, research, and innovation at the upcoming Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) Initiative Summit 2016 in New York, Sept. 15th & 16th. Garden Pool will be joining the ranks of Heads of State, world leaders, researchers, active campaigners, and farmers unified around the goal of open data for agriculture and nutrition.

As quoted by Natasha Mudhar, Media Spokesperson for GODAN: “Open data is key to innovation in agriculture and nutrition – and hence, in promoting food security – by improving farming methods, enhancing food production and providing better information and advice on nutritional methods.”

Garden Pool has been dedicated to improving, and sharing, low-impact farming methods since 2009. At GODAN, Garden Pool will demonstrate its low-input farming system, which uses 98% less water than a conventional farm, uses no chemical pesticides or fertilizers, and yields highly nutritious food on a small footprint.

From the Garden Pool website: “Our mission as an international non-profit is to develop better ways to grow food and help others do the same.”

GODAN believes that the key to Zero Hunger lies in existing but inaccessible nutritional and agricultural data. For the first time, public and private sector will join together in the largest open data summit of its kind.

GODAN Summit 2016 will offer the public the opportunity to join over 330 GODAN partners, including Garden Pool, Government of Kenya, the U.K., and the USA, ONE Campaign, and Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH).
