It’s been some time since I’ve revisited the Farm 2.0 idea around here. Trust me, the gears are still turning, but there’s a lot of other (higher priority) work to do around here for the time being.
For now, enjoy this video tour of an Arduino-automated Aquaponics setup in Oakland, California.
The best stuff is the indoor grow space: oodles of sensors all controlled by an arduino that tweets system updates out to the web!
Collecting solar power to light a grow lamp baffles me (leaves do it for free!) but it’s otherwise a really cool setup. Imagine that level of control in a full-sized hoop house.
