I don’t really know how this site works yet,
but the windowfarms project made my day today and so I had to share it. (And I have some questions)
I’m from Belgium, Europe and I live in Antwerp.
Trying to help the environment, I spend a lot of time in our garden, growing vegetables etc.
In the winter, I have always been improvising in ways to bring as much garden as possible inside the house.
I hung up bottles with plants in it, but never came up with the idea of doing it hydropincally. Until I saw the video on TED.
And so -like a lot of you, I suppose- I printed the instructions and started to build my first windowfarm….but I still haven’t finished it.
Now comes the great part: This year is my last year in highschool. It’s just a normal school, but, according to me, it surpasses a lot of other schools by giving every student a chance to improve the schools organisation. I’ve been waiting for the bimonthly forum, where we can give our opinions, for a while now, but yesterday I finally went there.
It took me until the end before I pushed my self to tell them my idea. We have these huge windows at school, through wich a large ammount of light falls in, and they would be simply perfect for windowfarms.
I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to convince them, because in Belgium, there are berely any signs of windowfarms yet.
But I might have changed that today, because my school was really enthousiastic, in a way I couldn’t have hoped for better. They basically said ’we have no other choice but to build one’
Is there any advice I can get before I tell my entire school about this?
And what type of farm will probably best suit my plan?
This made my day.
