Emma Marris: Rambunctious Garden

While I fully expect Emma Marris would deem the use of robots to create her Rambunctious Garden a distraction, and my contention that robotics is necessary to the achievement of sustainability non-obvious, at best, I still must consider her an ally, for preaching the gospel of making the best of what we have left.

 

My hope is that the goal of rewilding can be interwoven with that of producing food, fiber, and fuel, on a grand scale, through the creation and application of robotic systems of land management capable of nurturing crop plants through their entire life cycles while leaving neighboring plants undisturbed.
