      This was a valve I purchased at Loews and used I believe a 1/8″ tube to allow the water to be dispensed at the top of the system

    I originally ran wire down through the center of the bottles but this didn’t work. I decided it would keep the water running straight but the problem was it was hard to get the plants around it without forcing the plants in so I took it down and used another method

    Thumbnail Because I was working with a window that was extremely tall I had to get a water pump that was more pricey then the air pumps.  This one may have been a bit overkill but they really jump in size and I didn’t have a lot of time to order online so this was purchased [...]

    This is a close-up of the PVC and top of the frame.  I had the water collect into this pipe and then trickle down the 2 columns

    In Savannah a majority of buildings are historic so I was unable to screw, glue, or do anything of the sort to support my window farm.  What I had to do was build a frame to support it.

    Very Hot here and so far my transplanted window farm from inside to outside is 50/50. I unfortunately had to move my project out of school where I had %100 production from everything planted to my home where I do not have big windows. I started setting everything up on my porch not in direct sunlight to brace for the shock and lost my cucumbers pretty fast. I have since lost a basil plant but I have 2 more that are still doing well and my bell pepper that was almost at supermarket size broke in a moving session which I am still very bent about. Obviously this isnt a window farm anymore but I am trying to keep it hydroponic and see what happens next

    Hello Everyone
    I am a Architecture grad student finishing up at SCAD(Savannah College of Art and design) and the past 2 quarters I was working on my Thesis for vertical farming in urban areas. I discovered this website sometime ago and decided to use the idea of window farming in a larger scale as part of my project. I built my own window farm in my studio space and had great success from it. Unfortunately the quarter ended and I was forced to take it down however I would love to share photos with everyone and talk about my steps. I apologize as I don’t have easy access to the internet at the moment so bare with me as I attempt to get all of my project up for viewing. Thanks and hope to have everything up soon and also thanks to Britta Riley who actually just happened to be at my school to see it in person and put together this great site.
