Description

We want to create our version of this project: http://www.ted.com/talks/britta_riley_a_garden_in_my_apartment.html in order to grow vegetables in apartments and sharing experiences with other member of this community.

The spirit is however not to restrict ourselves to hydroponic gardens, but to cooperate on any idea that enables growing vegetables inside an apartment, and for which one is motivated for. Growing and sharing! Ecris dans ta langue natale si tu préfères, of in het Nederlands als je wil...
