Or can they? I had some fun testing out different ways of growing lettuce. I set up two wicking beds and two kratky totes. One of the hydroponic setups and one of the soil beds had Super Greensand added to them as a source of organic silica. Buy Super Greensand on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Greensand-Micronized-Minerals-Elements-including/dp/B077S3NS2T/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1523392997&sr=8-1&keywords=super+greensand. Check out their website at https://www.supergreensand.com/ for more info. I was monetarily compensated for including their product in this video. The wicking beds had an unintended design flaw that gave the plants insufficient water. However, germination and seedling growth was better in the bed with Super Greensand. I think this is likely due to improved moisture retention from the silica. Music is "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff.

Self confessed “crazy plant lady” Summer Rayne Oakes decided to turn her Brooklyn apartment into a forest after her roommate moved out six years ago. Since then she has expanded the collection in her 1,200 square foot apartment and now has more than 150 plant species including a full forest wall, pineapple plants and even a banana tree.

How to Make an Indoor Aquaponics System Hi there, just wanted to show you a simple indoor system that we put together for a professor at a university in Japan. He wanted to use it to show students and other teachers how aquaponics works, and so we wanted it to look nice. This could be put together relatively simply by anyone really and so we thought that you might like to take a look. Main unit is from IKEA. We used a stainless steel kitchen sink fine mesh strainer fitted inside some 60mm PVC pipe as a rudimentary solids waste filter. Hope you like it, and it helps you with some ideas for your own systems. Read up on aquaponics for more details. : http://bit.ly/aquaponics-Organic-Gardening

How do you make salad from the fish in your aquarium at home? To find out more about how Evergreen is connecting nature to the city visit - http://www.evergreen.ca/ By combining techniques of aquaculture – the farming of aquatic life for food – and hydroponics - the growing of plants indoors using water in place of soil. The symbiotic outcome of these two practises is called Aquaponics. Steven Looi and Joan of Up Stream Aquaponics demonstrate how to build a system in your home that converts the ammonia from fish waste into nitrates for plants keeping the water clean, and allowing the plants to grow. The Mainstay Healthy Choices project aims to engage Mainstay’s tenant members in breaking the chain of “no money, bad food, no exercise, no information” – find more information at http://ow.ly/JfYnA In 2014, Mainstay Housing engaged Evergreen to adapt our existing Healthy Choices curriculum into a food literacy and community kitchen project. The project equips tenant members with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to make healthy food choices that are inexpensive and culturally relevant. It’s the first step in taking control of their own - and their community’s - food security and nutritional health.
