47 days to go…

WindowFarm

Well the time is here… the count down to the next Envirolution begins.  Its 47 days until the fun continues in Platt Fields Park on 18th June 2011.

I thought I would start by having a look back at some of the highlights from last years event.We were lucky enough to have a demonstration of a WindowFarm.  Maya Chowdhry set up a two column farm in the window of the cafe of The Contact.

The WindowFarms are an ingenious way of growing food in an urban environment by utilising the little space people have by adopting vertical growing.

The design was developed using a open-source community and it is now a community of over 18,000 people around the world.

Check out this short video for a demonstration of how the system works
