    That's an awesome video. I live in Puerto Rico and I have a small space to grow because of my disability. I grow in my balcony and in my raised bed and I'm planning spread more people can grow in limited space and with small amount of money.

    I can see these popping up in the apartment complexes where I live. In their unused parking spaces.

    Cool idea for the rain catchment! This is exactly what we talk about in our recent article on the immediate future of food. (https://www.brightagrotech.com/the-immediate-future-of-food/) If you guys ever need help with simple Green Wall systems, feel free to reach out!

    Not economical. You need 100 times more compact design. Or own land. In city the equipment cost more than what you save on food. Good for hobby but not for growing food in real terms.

    I am sorry that you have abandoned the hydroponics. It is not wasteful on water in fact it is quite miserly. Plants need water to grow, if you expect them to grow you must be willing to supply the water they need. A tomato plant in a hot area will use over 1 gallon of water per day, (in a hydroponic system) especially if it loaded with tomatoes. Not a drop is wasted. Also, Plants "eat" chemicals, whether it comes from chemicals dissolved in the ground or chemicals that are suspended in the nutrient/water solution. I think the reason people are down on chemical fertilizers is that they have been misused and allowed to leaches into the ground water in large scale agribiz. When I have used up my nutrient solution, I feed it to my other plants and trees in my yard. Nothing is wasted. I would urge you to look into hydroponics a little more. It produces great foods in a very compact area and is well adapted to growing awesome greens. I suggest you search youtube for "Off grid hydroponics" or the Kratky Method for growing leafy greens. It is cheap, easy to implement, and can be used anywhere. I have been using the Kratky Method to grow Swiss Chard, Butter Lettuce, Spinach, Asian Greens, Collards, chili peppers and more with great results. I prefer to grow my greens in my basement under standard daylight fluorescent lights and get great results all year long. I urge you to reconsider. Thank you.
