…as we were the other day…what do you people think about window farming? Worthwhile? Silly? Is this a lot of effort for a salad or a few strawberries? Or is it revolutionary?
Walking around the lake near my house I’ve noticed the preponderance of snags – dead trees left standing, most of them without their tops....

It may only yield a few strawberries and tomatoes but as long as its an enjoyable process for the individual then that’s what matters. As a bonus it may even add character and life into the building as well increasing oxygen. A great idea and quite possibly revolutionary to those in urban areas who want to exercise their green thumbs.

It’s certainly revolutionary and heartening!
Go R & D.I.Y.ers!!!
Gardener’s gotta do what a gardener’s gotta do, right? And I agree with other commenters that the spirit of the movement is what counts.
Global collaboration with the intention of improving quality of life–good. Open source development of useful technology–good. Finally, passionate young people actively involved in gardening, no matter how little space they have–good. Who cares if they each only get one strawberry? They’re learning! And, my guess is, eventually they will teach us a thing or two. What’s not to like?
The main point of this talk seemed to be the collaboration process, not the final product (window farms). Would I grow this way if it were my only choice? Yes. Do I like the way the product evolved? YES!!
Awesome. I have half an acre and do not have to “do windows”. But I am enthralled by people growing their own, cutting down on consumerism, adding oxygen to their apartment, etc.
A little late to the game here on window farming. This is not a new thing. Great idea launched a few years back………….
