Urban agriculture is now possible!

FabLab Solidaire MakerLab CRI   -  France

Orgatec - an urban agriculture project is a connected system that uses local resources to grow food in towns. The FabLab tools made it possible to produce pots, growth lamps, and a modular bed made from recycled palettes in which the seedlings will grow. This project combines elements of design, electronics and biology.

In our Solidarity FabLabs, we offer free training to young people facing difficulties in their lives. They learn about digital production, team-work and maybe even lay the foundations of a future career. Our international challenge is aimed at them.
