Cool garden idea

This slammin' thing is called a Growroom, or rather a collection of Growrooms. It was designed by Space 10 as part of the Ikea Lab development program.

Growrooms are 2.8 x 2.5 meters in size. Light and water reach theplants and there is shade anad shelter for visitors.

The design is open-source--available from Space 10 (http://www.space10.io).

The goal is to create space-conserving sustainability in inner cities, perhaps, and developing countries. The whole thing is made of plywood.

This sustainability thing is spreading...in the Netherlands, a big supermarket has a growing herb garden--customers pick what they need.

There is also a whole "farm" in a shipping container.

Keeping thinking, people!
