For those of you who didn’t know, we’ve been running our little tiny student farm from out of our home. We moved to a new home this month where we have room to properly grow indoor and outdoors. We have been busy getting everything organized and setup. We expanded to 16 towers instead of only 2. There are some logistics we are still working with the space but there is a ton of excitement. We obtained some German Thyme, Chocolate Mint, and Strawberry plants and have them planted in planters and towers. Next week’s project is getting the frame work setup for the new towers and working out the light situation. Seeds are being started as well. Pictures will come soon!
I am looking to bring vertical aquaponic farming to the great concrete jungle of Chicago. I've been doing hobby growing for the last several years and decided after some health issues that it was time for a change of careers and to do something I enjoy doing. I started exploring the possibilities of going commercial with my growing and found that I am not the only person out there trying to improve and change what's growing. I found growing to be very satisfying and fulfilling. I'm excited about the prospect of bringing the absolute freshest herbs and greens to my neighbors and community and am working through the planning stages with a lot of planning and thought and networking to make sure that my dream is a success.
