Sustainable farming in your kitchen

biosphere

Check out the Biosphere Farm, which allows you to grow your own veggies and fish in your kitchen:

But perhaps most dramatic is the self-contained biosphere farm, created by Philips, to provide fish and fresh produce 52 weeks a year.

It will also deliver fresh hydrogen, which can be used to power a car, and run on food waste from the kitchen.

The plants produce oxygen, which is fed into the fish tank to keep the occupants happy.

The tank is kept clean by shrimps, which can also be eaten.

I had a similar contraption back in the '70s to grow, um, herbs. But it didn't include a fish habitat.
