Urban Farming

urban farming gardening

As a conceptual idea to feed yourself  I am really impressed. Let's take a flat roof on a private house or block of apartments and feed ourselves.

No garden, no space - no problem!

Utilise the space you do have to create a sustainable source of food.

So how does this all work?  Sometimes diagrams speak volumes over words.

Only thing I would say is that the fish are also a source of nutrition.

So, no, not a tank of goldfish.

In reality in your own home this is what it could look like. A never ending stream of fresh fish and fresh vegetables.

There is also hydroponics,  essentially without the fish and nutrients travelling from soil through water and pumped back into plants.
At some point this concept will become an everyday green reality.

I am totally in support.

Go see and support a totally dedicated architect that I have great admiration for .
