Windowfarms promotes environmental stewardship and improves quality of life by reimagining and rebuilding urban indoor spaces. WindowfarmsTM are high-yield hydroponic gardens for growing fresh local vegetables indoors. But why have more than 18,000 community members joined the research and develop it yourself (R&D-I-Y) movement?
Join us to learn more about Windowfarms and the R&D-I-Y movement! This is our first discussion on a theme we will be exploring together over the coming months: Changing the World though Food. The evening will include time for networking, presentation, and dialogue among participants.
