It is estimated 125 to 160 billion pounds of food is wasted every year in U.S. alone. This food is mostly perfectly edible and nutritious yet due to over production, bad weather, or over buying, it is wasted.
Sustainable Family Farm is an innovative project that takes advantage of food waste in a household. It’s a mini indoor garden that takes advantage of food waste to produce fertilizer and household waste of water to water the plants. This process can be done at the comfort of your own home, imagine how much food you can grow and consume from that wasted food.
Sustainable Family Farm is a project by Chaozhi Lin, Junjie Zhou, Yong Liu, Can Wang, Jiashun Lin. It is hoped that through this innovative mini garden, people don’t just throw away their food, they can use food waste to grow their food, experiencing the process themselves, and ultimately help reduce food waste. At the same time, it creates a green space in your home.
