first draw and project concept


this is the first draw of the refarm. the initial idea was to make two systems of growing plants: one, in hydroponic and the other in the classic system with soil. the hydroponic is interesting because you can save water and barcelona is one of these cities that have huge water problems, but soon I left the idea because monitoring this system remotely it’s very expensive. So I stuck with the classical organic/substract system. In the picture you can see what I propose to control: automatic watering system, humidity measure, temperature measure and articial light all controlled by arduino. let’s see where this is going to. deadline: spring/summer 2009
