An Amazingly Simple Open-Source Food Grow System

Reposted from: Activist Post | by The Health Ranger

The Health Ranger, Mike Adams, reveals the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box at the Health Freedom Expo in Naples, FL. Adams is releasing this technology to the public for free as an open-source project to promote the decentralization of healthy food production.

Health Ranger unveils Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box grow system in new video

by Mike Adams (NaturalNews)

Yesterday I unveiled the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box in an exclusive video broadcast at the Health Freedom Expo in Naples, FL. You can now watch that full video here (see links below).

The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box breakthrough

The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box (www.FoodRising.org) is a non-electric, open-source food production system that can be easily constructed using common tools and parts.

The system is:
* 100% EMP-proof, using no circuit boards.
* 100% non-electric. Requires no electricity whatsoever.
* Key parts needed for the system can be easily scavenged almost anywhere (a paper clip, a pencil eraser, etc.).
* Eliminates weeding.
* Grows food in less than half the space of soil agriculture.
* Grows food at waist height; eliminating bending over.
* Uses about 1/20 the water of conventional soil agriculture.
* Produces highly nutritious food with higher mineral density.
* Can grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and even root vegetables (with an adaptation to be released later).

Credit for the teaching of “non-circulating hydroponics” belongs to Professor B. Kratky at the University of Hawaii, Hilo. His academic paper describing this technology is linked atthe home page of FoodRising.org.

Health Ranger invents 3D printable components that make the system work

The key component of the system is the self-watering float valve, and to make this sytem easy to make yourself, I designed a 3D printable automatic water-leveling float valve designed around common parts that can be easily scavenged or acquired:

* A pencil eraser
* A paper clip
* A garden hose washer
* A common vitamin bottle

Using almost any 3D printer (and the correct filament, which is called “t-glase”), any person can print their own self-watering float valve and use it to grow their own food with very little effort and at very little cost.

Official launch happens this Tuesday

The official launch of the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box happens this Tuesday at www.FoodRising.org

There, you’ll be able to start downloading 3D models to print them yourself. (All 3D models are released for FREE!)

DIY VIDEO: Also on Tuesday, my DIY video shows you how to build these systems yourself using common tools and parts you can find at any hardware store.

Funds acquired for over 200 donations to schools across America

We are currently raising funds to donate 250 of these grow systems to schools across America. Funds have so far been acquired for over 207 of these systems, and we have approved donation requests from over 100 schools, churches and community centers (with more donation requests arriving each day).

If your organization would like to receive a Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box donation, donation request instructions are found here.
