GIY – grow it yourself: fish and greens

April 8, 2008 at 1:43 am 1 comment

Become a Locavore and produce your own food at home with Local River. Conceived by Mathieu Lehanneur, Local River is a conceptual “aquarium-refrigerator” where one can breed his/her own fish and grow vegetables simultaneously.

Grow fish and plants

Vegetables in the floating pots help purify the water by removing nitrates and other minerals – which in turn nourishes the plants. In this way, the plants and fish become interdependent in this man-made eco-system.

For those in NYC, this concept will be presented at the Artists Space Gallery starting 25 April. Via MoCo Loco.
