Food for Life Global welcomes Windowfarms as one of our affiliates. Windowfarms are vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window gardens built using low-impact or recycled local materials.
A Windowfarm makes it easier for anyone to get started growing hydroponically even in the limited space of an apartment, during fall, winter, and spring months.
Newly released school kits allow K-12 and University teachers and students to grow and study hydroponically-grown food in a scholastic environment during the winter.
Almost anything can be grown in a Windowfarm including, Arugula, Basil, Calendula, Chamomile, Cilantro, Collards, Cress, Dianthus, Dill, Kale, Lemon Balm, Lettuces, Lollo Rossa, Marigolds, Mesculan, Mint, Mustard, Nasturtiums, Pansy, Parsley, Safflower, Sage, Salvia, Snapdragons, Snow Peas, Sorrel, Squash, Stevia, Sugar Pea, Swiss Chard, Thyme, Tomatoe, and Violas.
Researchers have argued that to grow your own food is one of the most effective actions an individual can take for the environment and personal health.
