This vertical tower can fit ~25 plants in a single 1m² of space. The hydroponic system enables rapid plant growth, higher yields and reduced water usage due to its closed-loop system.
This rotating, cylindrical system ensures plants receive optimum exposure to their light source. The Omega is self-watering and soiless, and is catered to those with a larger budget.
The wicking bed is ideal for those with smaller budgets and a larger gardening area. A reservoir below the soil feeds the plants via capillary action, allowing them to go unwatered for weeks at a time.
“Conventional” agriculture requires ever-increasing inputs and energy into the system to maintain production. This approach is inherently unsustainable, working against nature to the detriment of people and the planet.
Permaculture is about harmonizing with nature so that the system mainatins itself in a energizing feedback loop. In agriculture, this approach results in enormous yields with minimal energy input.
