.IO = input/output.
.Io is associated with open-source technology standing for Input, Output, binary in it’s essence, and allowing for transparent participation and emergent contributions. It is also a great way to look at SkyFarms Sustainable Energy Equation. To promote SDG to achive the sustainable development goals, #2 Zero Hunger. If it takes an input of 500 Calories to grow an apple with an output of 50 Calories, then it is easy to see that creates energy debt and is unsustainable.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT SKYFARMS
I really feel like I'm connected to a purpose, I wish to cause an impact for the world. I saw your project, I felt really hopeful that I could contribute to it positively.
This project stood out to me because I recently spent time reading up on hydroponics and CSA for a side project a few friends were working on. I was impressed with the many potential merits of the idea—food available year-round, putting unused spaces to work, greener delivery options, and so forth.
It's wonderful that the initiative has attracted so many willing volunteers, it really shows how eager people are to work towards a globally transformative goal.
As soon as we read the project we realised that it was just what we were looking for.
Your project looks amazing and I really feel like I need to learn more from you and help as much as I can!
We think your project is fantastic. It is important for us to learn how to grow and care for plants in an organic way but also learn about AgTech, sustainable principles, collaborative economy.
I read a few weeks ago what you offer and a little your description and I will not fool you when I tell you that I loved it. It makes me happy that there are people like you who contribute to creating a culture and a different economy in the face of fierce capitalism that oppresses us.
Such a breath of fresh air to see a projects like yours.
I came across your profile and the Agrihub initiative you've got going on sounds right up my street! I like your approach to sustainability and starting local, and I would really like to contribute to the project.
In my opinion you do a fascinating and incredible job which I’d really like to join! The way we’re producing and growing our food is one of the most important topics in a time of global warming and fast growth of population.
Simply put, I think what you're doing is really cool! I feel it would give me some valuable perspective on this type of inter-community development that could be applied to my planning studies and possibly even planning career down the road.
Your Agrihub Farm-To-Fork initative has several goals and values that I find very innovative and helpful to address several social and environmental issues in our world. The open-Source and collaborative approach of your initiative along with an economic development strategy is very powerful.
In your proejct I am impressed by the fact that I can become a part of innovation community.
