I’m new to this and have yet to make my own windowfarm; born, bred and living in Reykjavik, Iceland. The idea of using my time and resources to grow my own vegetables, greens and fruit is very exciting to me.
But after researching the articles here a little, there is one BIG thing bugging me about the whole thing. Why use all those synthetic materials to grow food? Why not try to design a system that uses natural materials like glass, wood etc. as much as possible? Best would be to use only natural materials, of course! Don’t know if that is practical though.
What are your suggestions and ideas on this issue? I would love to get some feedback on the use of natural materials only.
