Green House Tables

After trying both aquaponics and a FarmBot and being disappointed with both from one reason or another, I decided to take matters into my own hands and design my own green house growing system.

​

A few of the more important design goals included: not having to bend over to care for the plants, a simple watering system, potentially a system to inject nutrients, the ability to sub-divide crops of various heights so that grow lights could be properly adjusted for each and the ability to adjust grow light timing for each area.  Finally, the materials had to be at least organic.

​

Interestingly on that last point, after doing a bunch of research I found that they tables needed to be constructed from wester red cedar.  Our native cedars create toxins that can enter the food supply and of course pressure treated lumber is out of the question.

​

Here are some photos of the tables being constructed and some plants starting to come in.
