Britta Riley’s Windowfarms project, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, offers those short on space a way of growing fruit and vegetables at home. The vertical food gardens take advantage of the natural light and climate controlled environment, with the roots placed in nutrients from the sea instead of soil.
The Windowfarms can be hung or placed in your home and there is a wide variety of herbs, greens, fruits, vegetables and medicinals available to grow. The system is made from environmentally-friendly plastic and wire, and takes around ten minutes to assemble.
There are over 22,000 global community members at our.Windowfarms.org, where people share their experiences, post questions, meet and engage with other Windowfarmers. The classic one-column Windowfarms are available from Kickstarter if you pledge $99 to the project.
