window farms


I stumbled across this fantastic project while on the FoodCycles website . The Window Farms project is the brain child of tech-artists Britta Riley and Rebecca Bray and demonstrates how DIY urban food farming can be take advantage of all year round.





Their website is fantastic and there are tons of great process photos and images from their exhibition at Eyebeam in NYC. They’ve also posted a very comprehensive design for window farms that you can build yourself at home. To learn how to build one yourself, step step-by-step, visit and download the How To instruction guide. Seeing as I have two large windows, six months of winter weather approaching, and a love for fresh arugula, I may just be taking this project on myself very soon.
