GROW FOOD IN YOUR APARTMENT YEAR-ROUND!

RSVP by sending the number in your party to info@windowfarms.org (limit 30 people).

Windowfarms are vertical hydroponic, veggie-producing curtains made primarily of recycled materials or parts available at local hardware stores. New Yorkers can grow a portion of their own organic food year-round in their apartments and offices by building windowfarms from open source designs that keep evolving through mass collaboration at our.windowfarms.org. At the workshop, participants will:

 

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.

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.
