|Are you planning to build a windowfarm?||
Yes, in my dorm as a floor project. I want to educate the rest of the girls about GMO’s, and that agriculture doesn’t have to be hard. I’m looking for easy replicable and cheap ideas that won’t intimidate them into replicating this in the future where ever they are. Living on an island that imports all of its food where in case something catastrophic happens we only have a food reserve of 3 days for the whole island (and it’s not common knowledge) it’s important to make them conscious of the fact and give them the tools to become self suficient and lower our footprint.
|Did you buy a Windowfarms Kit?||

|I'm an unabashed . . .||
do-it-yourself-er-er, sustainability enthusiast
|What are you most excited about in joining the community?||
Learning how to educate through doing and through community work and getting others involved. I want to understand how hydroponics work in a tropical island where the season change isn’t as obvious as in the US. My other worry are mosquitoes. I’m worried hydroponics might create a breeding grown.
