If you’ve been trying – or even thinking about trying – to lead a more sustainable existence, here’s something you might consider: the Hydroponic Garden. Kettal and Tectum Garden, led by a team of environmentalists, agronomists, architects, designers, engineers, and scientists, have designed a hydroponic vegetable garden. Based on edible renaturalization, the overarching goal is to incorporate more eco-design into yet to be built spaces and offices. Through this channel, climate change can be further addressed and quality of life improved in cities. Hydroponic Garden can also create a link with the natural world by bringing agri-productive areas into work environments, which will in turn foster a more sustainable future through the circular green economy. The bonus is that you get to enjoy the proverbial fruits of your labor along with the added greenery as it grows.
Hydroponic Garden, like others, is designed to grow without soil. In its place is a lightweight substrate that’s watered by drip. This not only reduces water consumption, it also contains water-soluble fertilizers. The nutrient-filled H2O is then reused again and again. The lighting used can be either artificial LED or natural, depending upon the crop being grown. Last but not least, Hydroponic Garden’s boxy structures are manufactured with 75% recycled materials that are 100% recyclable at the end of life.
