Building your own window farm


I saw an article on Lifehacker, which talked about a project called

Window Farms focuses on helping households create their own “Micro farms” by utilising window space. The hydroponic system can churn out a salad per week.

The tutorials take you through the process of measuring your window, calculating how many ‘pods’ to chain together, how to create the hydroponic solution, selecting pumps, etc.

A good place to start learning is with a basic reservoir system window farm, this article has a PDF explaining the entire process (, but I recommend exploring all of to see what other ideas are there.

If you have spare space and some free time, why not try constructing one yourself, not having a backyard isn’t an excuse any more!
