FARM-N-VEST

An idea to move with

You grow your food on the outside of a wall in your house, they slide towards you to be plucked. A House and Farm at same time

Use Case

An Office goes has less free time, resides in a tropical region, opens the window to see fruits and veggies growing, decides which one to pluck and which to let grow more then slides the tray on to her side. If it is the last tray then she takes out all the previous tray until she reaches to the last tray. She keeps them on her window until done with the plucking. Now she may also plant the seedlings on the tray and feel excited as it will grow in less with least maintenance. At the back of her mind, she knows that if she faces any problem, FARM-N-VEST will provide her with the best solution.Plants above the window or balcony which are in a frame work can be descended through a pulley system.

Potential

This idea will radically change the concept of agriculture & living . Realization of this concept will give people more food, which are fresh and safe and home . Even busy office goers will grow their own food. Reducing dependency of the general mass on the market for food , reducing the price of the essential food items. This method won’t be a competitor in the increasing demand of water. Embracing this technique will turn the world green. City walls will be green, reducing the carbon footprints and global warming. Farm–n-Vest is an easy method , so from house wives and retired old peopleas to businessmen, may use these as farmlands to grow crops for commercial benefit, thus opening a big wing in the agri based economy

Business Case

URBAN:In urban area, Skyscrapers, Offices, Multiplex and Government buildings have enough available free space (outsides of the walls), which can be utilized by the private players. The building owner himself may do or rent out that space to others for practicing agriculture.The attempt is profitable as it is an aeroponic system yielding 200% more than traditional agri practice & that too in a large area.RURAL: Farm-n-Vest will produce very portable units of aeroponic system. Small piece of land – Mechanization of these lands does render losses. So aeroponic units will give better yield hence more profit. Arid land- Portable units of aeroponic system can be used due to 80% less water consumption than conventional farming. Barren Land- Aeroponics may be used as it don’t involve soil anyhow.

Objectives:

  1. Providing Fresh Fruits and veggies to every individual and reducing soil as well as water dependency.
  2. Address to the problem of low yield in conventional agriculture, arid, barren lands & small pieces of land.
  3. Increasing the green belt to decrease high pollution levels especially in urban areas

NOSTALGIC

As we were going through photos and videos to upload the repo, i became nostalgic. these 2 months have been so great and we got to learn so much. From the genesis till the end it was a wonderful time. we learnt so much, got the perspective of different people. This turned out to be a eye openerand eventually helped us to reach our goals. .

PROBLEM

We started to discuss problem and its just not one its many, we at least discovered this. But what is more essential element that we need to solve, everyone has different opinion. what to do ? how to proceed? after a heated argument things became clear that we needed a break, and there's nothing a sandwich can't solve.

THE FIRST WEEK DRAMA

So we begin the journey with all kind of drama, who will be our team mates,or are we capable enough to deal with this, or what will be the possible solution to the most important question we have faced till now "How to feed 9 Billion People?" Even as we discuss the problems my mind boggles to the number 9 billion! How did we end up in this turmoil? the answer is simple and is right in front of us but we just don't want to address them. Our discussions led me to believe that we live in harsh times and the future is bleak, but there's a hope "US".
