Toolu Kër Smart Urban Agriculture - Solidarity FabLab Lab-S

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

Toolu Kër Smart Urban Agriculture

Solidarity FabLab Lab-S   

“A field in the home” - that is how this vegetable micro-gardening project for terraces or balconies describes itself. With sensors for humidity, temperature, and light, the system automatically initiates watering when needed. It is solar-powered. All the data appear on a dashboard that makes it possible to manage the system remotely or to switch to totally automatic, clean, and autonomous mode. On this project, four young people not in employment, between the ages of 20 and 29, received training in 2D drawing, using a digital milling machine, 3D printing, electronics, and Arduino automation to make the prototype.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

We have provided free training to young people seeking to enter the world of work since 2014 in our Solidarity FabLabs. There they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps even a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, the challenge is to create digital objects that address new agricultural and food issues. A theme that directly addresses one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals: "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture."
