The DIY Windowfarm Brings Agriculture Inside The House

As the world economy is transformed by disastrous financial convulsions and uncertainty, many aspects of our consumer driven lives come to question. Phrasing this sentiment in simpler terms, sometimes just buying our food doesn’t cut it anymore. Prices are too unstable; the attendant guilt and health concerns prove burdensome, so maybe it’s better to grow it independently.
