DIY

Britta Riley will be leading a workshop on the Waterpod' Brooklyn Bridge Park pier for anyone who wants to learn how to build a windowfarm.

Windowfarms let you grow your own food in your apartment window year-round by means of hydroponics.

Bring your window dimensions (height, width, sill depth) and you will walk away with a customized design just for your apartment window.

Sunday, Aug 16 3-4 p

 

Window Farms Introduction

Window Farms is a project that helps people grow food in urban windows through crowdsourced research and development of DIY hydroponic vertical gardening. Learn more about the project at windowfarms.org.

The Urine to Fertilizer Kits were on display at the Museum of Modern art as part of their exhibition for Earth Day. Other works in the show included Isabella Rossellini's fabulous Green Porno series, Superflex's Flooded McDonald's, and Michel de Broin's Pedal-powered Buick.

 

On Monday, April 6th, at 7:00 we've got a show at Terence Koh's gallery space (Asia Song Society or ASS) as the first installment in their new programming series, Expel.

You drink beer. Then, pee in a cup. We'll turn it into fertilizer while you dance and socialize. At the end of the evening, we will scoop some fertilizer back into your cup and you can take it home to fertilize your plants.

45 Canal St, between Orchard and Ludlow.

Monday, April 6th, 7-9pm.

This is part of the Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee project, along with the installation and Urine to Fertilizer DIY Kit we created here at Eyebeam in March of 2008.

Greens growing in a suspended hydroponic Window Farm

We are creating several different designs for suspended, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield light-augmented window farms using low-impact or recycled local materials. These prototype window farms, to be located in high-profile windows throughout the city, are intended to inspire other New Yorkers to design and implement their own window farms. Signs in the windowfarms will challenge New Yorker to create their own and direct them to a website where we can all share photos, plans, designs, and information. Together, we will derive viable methods for growing food under the local conditions of our own homes in a way that is efficient enough for New Yorkers' lives.
