Aeroponics



So I was looking at the website for my local organic produce co-op recently  and saw this- Aeroponics.  Funny I haven't heard much about this idea since it has existed since the 80's, but now I'm kinda obsessed. The concept is that you can grow organic veggies in the most urban of environments with minimal usage of space or  water and produce much less waste than traditional soil based gardening methods. The roots are misted with nutrient rich water that allows the plants to grow faster and produce a larger crop during a single growing season. The picture above is of a restaurant's rooftop garden, imagine if each of our homes or neighborhoods and local restaurants had one of these. We wouldn't have to rely on produce shipped from across the world and we would know our food was clean and safe....It would be awesome! 
Great Idea Right!
