http://www.ted.com Britta Riley wanted to grow her own food (in her tiny apartment). So she and her friends developed a system for growing plants in discarded plastic bottles — researching, testing and tweaking the system using social media, trying many variations at once and quickly arriving at the optimal system. Call it distributed DIY. And the results? Delicious. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Featured speakers have included Al Gore on climate change, Philippe Starck on design, Jill Bolte Taylor on observing her own stroke, Nicholas Negroponte on One Laptop per Child, Jane Goodall on chimpanzees, Bill Gates on malaria and mosquitoes, Pattie Maes on the “Sixth Sense” wearable tech, and “Lost” producer JJ Abrams on the allure of mystery. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and TEDTalks cover these topics as well as science, business, development and the arts. Closed captions and translated subtitles in a variety of languages are now available on TED.com, at http://www.ted.com/translate.

    patents? really?
    these principles have been around since the egyptians. nothing remotely new here. i like the fact that your promoting what is a wonderful form of agriculture but its poor to call it pioneering when theres such a long history with these methods and frankly quite ignorant.?

    Building various hydroponic systems – both off and on grid – is very easy, fun and affordable. If any of you out there are on the fence, go for it!?

    I teach people How To Grow Food in Small Spaces and my goal has always been to reach as many as I can. Microgreens are one of the fastest nutrient dense crops that anyone can grow at home, actually they grow awesome in windows, apartments, indoors and lots places.
    Check it out over at Marty's Garden now to learn from me!?

    anyone who wants to become a company like monsanto, is not helping anything, only trying to profit. this is a bunch of b.s. people should grow there own food and learn to be self sufficient but not by supporting any corporations.?
