FLOATING GARDEN

Floating Garden is a concept for inflatable garden plots that will withstand heavy rains in order to maintain food security in precarious situations. Floods destroy fields, homes, and natural habitats. We can safeguard agrarian land by creating floating raised beds. These raised beds can be covered in times of heavy rainfall in a contained environment. When the rainy season is over, these nutrient rich plots will have been saved from the contaminants brought to the surface by heavy rain and from being washed away. At the moment this is an open design prototype and am developing a fully covered version with a zip off roof. Please contact me for design specs to make your own!
