Education and Research
Teachers and students studying sustainable horticulture and aquaculture will enjoy these waist high tables with parallel beds and dual tanks.
The Biogarden™ and Bio-Incubator™ can be operated indoors or outdoors. The different configuration of beds and tanks allow side by side studies to compare inputs and outputs. Leaf and fruit analysis plus plant growth rates can be correlated with a host of other factors that make use of bioolgical grow media and biomass derived nutrient source options.
With all of these Food Plant™ systems, nutrients and water are recirculated and maintain at a regulated concentration. As the organic fertilizers are uptaken by plant or microbe or as water is added biomass is also added in Tea Bags that release the nutrients by keep the solids out of the pumps.
Optimizing growth with almost no physical labor associated with in ground soil management makes the Food Plant worthy graduate level researchers, yet practical for K-12 students as well.
As a science lab, for graduate or elementary school studies, students can expect to gain much in the study of of ecology, biology, chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, horticulture, soil science, nutrient cycling, anaerobic digestion, and sustainable agriculture and aquaculture.
The best part about the Food Plant "science laboratory", is the frequency of success. It's always great.
