Now that rooftops have been discovered to be a potential area for urban farming, many people believe this this is the solution for providing healthier and locally grown produce. They believe in this place despite its over average air pollution, lack of natural symbiotic opponents, high costs for water, poorly nutrient retaining soils, high labor costs and no machinery.
However and completely disconnected from all the above mentioned disadvantages food can also grow in the inside of any building. Modern green roof technology implemented in old yogurt containers to act like a modular system and can easily find a place close to a light source. Depending on the system, they require less than once a week watering. The water could even be recycled cold coffee (no sugar), tea or flat sparkling water before it is dumped into the sink. Instead of sieving out of the tea leaves or coffee grounds these waste products can be supplements to regular plant fertilizer. The run-off of these simple systems is zero since nobody wants water puddles in the living room, office or conference room. The results can be remarkable and some additional vegetables for lunch are always good.
The systems work without high tech, with fully recycled and recyclable materials, comes without an App, no power outlet and any other gimmicks.
The fresh green of the plants creates a nice living and working atmosphere, keeps the humidity in the comfort zone and additionally cleans the – already filtered – air. In our office peppers and pineapple are the favorites.
