The Great Green Wall is an African-led project with an epic ambition: to grow an 8,000km line of plants and trees across the entire African continent. Its goal is to provide food, jobs and a future for the millions of people who live in a region on the frontline of climate change.

But each of these species has a story to tell…” This Biosphere 2 mini-documentary highlights the natural history and cultural uses of a few of the plant species growing in the tropical forest biome. The stories reference research in the Biosphere 2 laboratory, cultural practices of Amazonian indigenous people, and I show a couple of clips from my work in the Amazon forest.

    Hemp and bamboo should be in the plan. The bamboo can be harvested for building materials such as flooring, furniture, and complete home building. The hemp seeds can be made into flour, coffee, and many other foods. It is also very healthy. I also believe it can replenish the nutrients to the soil. They don't require very much water to sustain either crops. The hemp seed alone can help tackle food insecurities on the entire continent.
