“Fruit and vegetables produced at home”

FabLab Solidaire Jeunes Sciences de Tunisie  -  Tunisia

Several boxes designed and produced at the FabLab are connected to make a small, intelligent farm which can be kept at home: Blockly Farm. The composting and growing blocks can be placed inside or outside. They are all connected to control the humidity and temperature of each block. This results in the best growing conditions for the plants... from recycled domestic waste.
