A team from the Ceres Regional Center for Fruit and Vegetable Innovation in Chile has won the first-ever $100,000 Ray C. Anderson Foundation Ray of Hope Prize™ in the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge. Approximately 25 percent of the world’s soil is degraded, and the winning concept provides a new way to protect seedlings and restore soils back to health. The prize was announced at the National Bioneers Conference today. The second place winner was the Oasis Aquaponic System from Central America and third place was Jube from Thailand.
