There are so many reasons to garden in your apartment. The nutrition alone gives good rationale but other benefits include a low carbon footprint in transportation of your vegetables, the miracle of seeing children WANT to eat the vegetables they grow, the centeredness that comes with starting your day near a garden compared to a full email inbox, and more.
Here at Botanical Instinct, we dream of a world where every child grows their own produce. What if each teen had a Bucket Farm in their room? What would happen if children constantly cared for and through about the needs of something outside of themselves like plants? What if we could rely on ourselves instead of a grocery store for veggies?
Come learn how to grow a food independence. We will teach you how to make a low cost, high producing, low footprint (space), movable, module, easy, and versatile Bucket Farm. We want everyone to benefit from our design. We want to spur the movement of bringing botany back to our homes and revitalize urban agriculture plant domestication.
Bucket Farm is designed to make experimenting with growing indoors from seeds easy, fun and productive. While other units offer high-cost plugs, inserts, and trays, all you need for Bucket Farm is seeds! Imagine that, a hydroponic unit that only needs seeds without high-cost up-sells. Come check it out, build your own or have us build one for you, and start botanizing.
Come to Parc Maisonneuve on Sunday June 23 at 10:30 am to learn how to build your own Bucket Farm. If you cannot make it in person, email us and we will let you know when we have the next online workshop.
