Part 2, ‘the Present’, shows us how to grow Azolla and the numerous ways in which it can provide local renewable food and energy globally, as well as its variety of other uses. This part of the book then describes how all of these processes, which form the ‘Azolla Biosystem’, are housed in Azolla Hubs that can be tailored precisely to local needs.
‘The Present’ is separated into twelve chapters and we have included samples from each for you to read. Many of the chapters begin with a short story that is designed to transport you back to another time and place, so that you can visualize the events as they occurred.
