Home-made, low-cost, low-tech hydroponic system, designed to empowering local communities to produce healthy food in locations affected by drought.
About the project
This model is developed by Bloom Project and it’s a low-cost system to produce healthy food in vulnerable communities or developing countries, in particular in locations affected by drought or lack of fertile land.
This system uses about 1/10 of the water and increases 10 times the production per square metre if compared to traditional farming for the same products.
Impact and Main Outcomes
Bloom Project is a solar energy hydroponic system also designed to favourite the employment of women and people with disabilities, thanks to their adjustable infrastructure
This model enables local communities to produce food to consume directly and sell on local markets, and it works for 10+ types of vegetables, making it highly adjustable to different local contexts and markets.
