“Britta Riley wanted to grow her own food (in her tiny apartment). So she and her friends developed a system for growing plants in discarded plastic bottles — researching, testing and tweaking the system using social media, trying many variations at once and quickly arriving at the optimal system. Call it distributed DIY. And the results? Delicious.” –http://www.ted.com
A a great TED Talk on how you can grow your own food, regardless of your living situation.

Just watched the video. This is pure awesomeness! I love how Britta Riley didn’t try to do something solely for herself but instead embraced the value of many minds working together toward a greater good. This inspired me to see how I may can set up something similar in my backyard greenhouse to increase yields… 🙂
I think it’s a marketing scam. I signed up for the instructions for this hydroponic garden. Gave it my email address. Clicked the link they sent me. It comes up, “file not found” rather than the instructions for the system promised. I’d get rid of this dead link before you make people mad.
