    It is time to Grow Up! Observations and forecasts from leading publications point to the need to increase our ability to grow fresh food in urban areas – closer to the populations that will consume them.  This means shifting from traditional outdoor gardens to indoor systems for food production.  Electronic Engineers are uniquely suited to provide systems based on a technology infrastructure that can lessen required energy consumption in production and improve the output of a smaller space.


    To get you started on your challenge journey we have a base-kit that you can work with and from. How you put these into practice is entirely up to you. This is a good collection of equipment for you to sink your soldering iron into, feel free to hack away, apart or together any component as you see fit.
