Window Farming

Most of us who live in cities live in apartments, which don’t tend to lend themselves well to farming. But as Britta Riley explains in this video, it is possible to build simple hydroponics systems out of readily available (and mostly free) items that are suitable for food production in compact urban settings.

There’s a whole online community dedicated to further refining the concepts of window farming, based on the open-source software model. You can find the instructions for building your own window farming units and their discussion forums here: http://our.windowfarms.org/
