28 Countries...The Global Appeal of Raising Fields
December 7, 2014
Since the Raising Fields Project made its first Internet appearance on October 30, there has been growing national and even international interest.
This website has been accessed in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Russia, Bermuda, Canada, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Taiwan, the Bahamas, Spain, Croatia, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Sri Lanka, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Seychelles, Sweden, Tajikistan, Turkey, Venezuela and Vietnam.
Within the U.S. the Project has been viewed in 34 states. Only one coastal state, New Hampshire, is missing from the domestic list.
Other than posting information about the site on social media, there has been no advertising campaign for the Project.
These results are verified through the use of Google Analytics as of December 7, 2014. They can be interpreted as evidence of widespread and multi-cultural interest in the challenges posed by rising seas to sustainable agriculture and a strong desire to secure workable and low-tech solutions.
The Raising Fields Project has global appeal because it is based upon common sense. If we elevate our growing fields in exposed regions, we sustain valuable locations to grow food. Through the use of elevated landscaptes, Southeastern Florida can lead the way towards helping our planet prepare for sea level rise.
