This toolkit is developed in collaboration with its Originator with the purpose to enable as many people as possible to take action for sustainable agriculture.
About the project
This hydroponics food system is originally from Glocal Impact network in Italy. This project is a simplified solar hydroponic system to grow vegetables without soil. Using the same amount of water you can grow 10x more fresh produce with this system than with traditional agriculture methods.

More about the project
The system can utilize local materials and low-tech equipment with solar to reduce water, material, and energy waste. The system is also scalable in a way that makes it possible for a farmer, grower, or a family to expand quickly and increase production in a short period of time. The hydroponic system works well with more than 15 kinds of vegetables (lettuces, tomatoes, and peppers for example) which makes it adaptable to various climates around the world.
