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.
