The mini-farm grow box is a total new soil-free, non electric food growing system for at home. It was developed by eMike Adams of the non profit organization Food Raising. Deeboc ensures that home gardeners can grow food without pulling weeds or need to worry about complex pumps, motors and other components. Moreover, this system works by about 1/20 th of the amount of water that is required in traditional agriculture and used in the most approximately half of the space.
The mini-farm grow box is based on constant feeding from the ground. The system ensures constant water, without additional circulation or air pumps.
The system works well in an area with much sunlight and a waist-high platform. This kind of convenience, is exactly what is required when the home gardening will be used on a larger scale.
