How to make a hydro window farm

1 Comment

 

The Hydro system has a container of water on the bottom that uses an air pump to take water up to the top of the column through tubes. The water drips from one planter down through the next two and recycles the water through the system. Depending on what I’m growing, I use liquid nutrients mixed in the water.

The plans for the original system can be found here: http://www.windowfarms.org/

I love getting my hands dirty working on greening projects around NYC. With a background in program management and environmental education, I work with others to create learning opportunities for our youth. I advocate for holistic living through consumer awareness and community activism.
