The future of our homes: gardening ideas
- by admin
Gardeners will be happy to hear that it is getting a lot easier to grow fresh food, thanks to a new technology that can help to turn the garden into a hub of fresh produce.
It could help to boost the economy and make food more affordable.
The technology is called a ‘farm to table’ and is being developed by Australian startup Gardena.
The company has already shown its technology at a demonstration event in Australia, where it used it to transform a typical backyard into a full-scale greenhouse for a couple of weeks.
It then gave the garden an overhaul to create a variety of plants and trees, including avocado trees, cucumber trees and bramble bushes.
The aim is to make fresh food more accessible for consumers, and could even help boost the Australian economy by helping to offset the impact of food prices on farmers’ margins.
The idea behind the technology is that it could allow farmers to grow enough fresh produce to meet their own personal needs.
While the idea is not new, the idea of a greenhouse that is not just a home to grow food but also a hub for fresh produce is something that has been a long-standing dream of many gardeners.
However, the technology itself is still in its infancy, with a number of different issues, including the need for a growing environment, a number more trees, and some plants having to be cut down.
The main advantage of the technology over traditional greenhouse technology is its ability to provide an environment that is as close to a ‘greenhouse’ as possible.
“We have tried to get as much organic matter as possible in the system and then we also have a little bit of a ‘garden to table’, which is what we want to be able to do,” said Gardena co-founder, Rob Tufte.
“And so we’ve been able to get really good at that.”
The startup has been using the technology to grow a variety.
The first is the Bt Crop, which grows organic crops that are grown using a technology called Bt, which is a genetically modified version of the corn that is used to make ethanol.
“It is basically a kind of organic plant that has grown inside of a container that’s sealed in an airtight container,” Mr Tuft said.
“You’ve got a seed that’s grown inside that has a certain nutritional value, and then you’ve got the container itself that is sealed and the carbon dioxide is in that container, which has an air seal.
And that’s how it works.”
The second technology is the Farm to Table, which uses a technology known as ‘delta-yield’ to grow the same types of crops that can be grown in a traditional greenhouse.
“Basically, what we do is we have the plant, the seed, the fertilizer and the CO2 that is in the container, but we also need to have the time, the space, and the right amount of water for the plant to grow,” Mr Woll said.
A greenhouse in a nutshell: The farm to table technology allows gardeners to grow their own food in the garden The plant grows a variety that is grown in the greenhouse, where the CO 2 is captured and then used to grow other crops The CO 2 captures the nutrients that are needed to produce the nutrients The CO2 is then stored in a storage tank to be harvested in the spring The nutrients are used to build a crop The CO3 is released to grow crops in the autumn The CO4 is released back into the atmosphere as part of the process The greenhouse also helps to cool the environment and can provide a nice home to plants that are growing under the shade of trees.
“So that’s basically how we grow the crops and we also help in that process, so that’s why we’ve really been working on the farm to tesuretron,” Mr Lacey said.
The system also helps farmers to get the most out of their garden.
“If you’re growing the same type of crops in a greenhouse, then the greenhouse is actually really good for you because you don’t need a lot of water or a lot or a little space to grow your own food,” Mr Erskine said.
There are some challenges with the technology, however.
It requires the garden to be close to the house, which can be a challenge when people are away from home.
The garden also needs a lot more space to be as big as possible, and that can take a while.
Mr Eyskine and Mr Tuffte said they wanted to create the ultimate ‘farm’ in the future, but the challenges were not insurmountable.
“That’s just the nature of the system,” Mr Hargrove said.
“[It]’s just a different way to grow things that’s actually quite interesting and very useful.”
“I think the key is that you’re trying to make sure that the environment is nice and nice and clean, and you’re just trying to get it to be where it’s supposed to be.
