As part of the recent website overhaul, a new section "News from Elsewhere" has been added to the site.  This is a curated collection of RSS links covering topics of interest to 500 Foods and its current and future stakeholders and community members.  These are largely focused on container growing, vertical farming, and generally alternative methods of commercial growing, along with the related labour and packaging considerations.  All topics of interest here.

Entries are added typically on a daily basis, culled from a much larger list of feeds coming from places like the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, HortiDaily, FreshPlaza and many other sources. Some sources post full stories in their feeds, others just include a brief summary.  Whatever is readily available is included here, but in either case a link to the complete story is provided.  The content stored here is indexed (and searchable) and an assortment of tags have been added as well, making it easy to find similar stories or to help research a particular topic with just a click.
