3 Aug 2016|Hydroponics|

When I started learning about hydroponics it soon became clear its extraordinary transformative potential. Growing everywhere, adapting to different conditions, water saving… If used wisely, it can improve many people’s lives. It should be more widely deployed yet it is so unknown. Maybe it is because the technology was not up to the task, or [...]

A possible future

27 Jul 2016|Hydroponics|

Imagine being in a future city. The air is clean, the streets are full of life, with trees, birds, happy people and ubiquitous robots doing their chores. People move around in driverless electric buses enjoying their free time because artificial intelligences and robots do much of the work. How is your food produced? Most of [...]

Hydroponics to the people

18 Jul 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

When we see how urban farming is being developed and becoming part of our cities, one question that comes up is: who is going to own and operate the production systems? Big corporations or individuals and local companies? Which one do you prefer? I personally wouldn’t like big companies to be the sole owners of [...]

Growing my indoors tomatoes. Harvest!

15 Jun 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

The previous post on these series I did a great leap forward. The truth is that mid-culture, things do not develop as quickly as at the beginning, or maybe it felt slower to me. Anyway, we left it a 17th of april with the first pollinated flower starting to develop; time for another fast forward. [...]

7 Jun 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

He fought for years to keep alive the research on soilless techniques when nobody believed in them; he was ridiculed for his ideas. In the early sixties he [...]
