We received an email this morning from our friends Britta and Rebecca in NYC saying that WindowFarms now has a new web site and how-to pdfs of window farm plans:
Window Farms are suspended, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible food gardens built using low-impact or recycled local materials. This site is the online community of window farmers, where we share our development processes and design innovations.
These vertical gardens, located in windows throughout the cityscape, are intended to inspire others to design and implement their own window farms, creating a network of urban food production. Signs in the windowfarms will challenge people to create their own and direct them to a website where we can all share photos, plans, designs, and information. Together, we can derive viable methods for growing food under the local conditions of our own homes.
To learn more about Window Farms, see windowfarms.org.
To learn how to build your own, get started with How-To instructions, or start reading posts from other window farmers throughout this site.
Please share your design process with the other farmers by joining the site and sharing your design and development process.
If you would like to join the site, email us at email@example.com. Tell us a little about yourself and your planned window farm.
You can also participate by commenting on other people’s projects, answering questions, and sharing resources.
