Incredible New Hydroponic Food Growing System – Totally Sustainable No Electricity Needed!


Power failures have NO EFFECT on the Mini-Farm Grow Box, unlike with hydroponics or aquaponics which rely on electricity to keep your plants (and fish!) alive.
The entire system is EMP-proof because it contains no electronic components whatsoever, making it the ultimate “survival food grow system” for preppers.
Works everywhere there’s sunlight. Automatically practical almost everywhere.
Seeds are planted directly into the grow medium, so there’s no transplanting required. Grow Boxes can be easily transported so you can start them indoors, then move them outdoors when desired.

Grow lights are not part of the Grow Box system, but it is fully compatible with Hydrofarm brand grow light systems.
The Mini-Farm Grow Box was designed around easily-scavenged parts such as paper clips, pencil erasers, garden hose rubber washers and discarded vitamin bottles. Using 3D printable parts designed by the Health Ranger, these parts can be easily assembled into grow systems to produce food without electricity. This means the grow system works in third-world countries, post nuclear war scenarios, grid-down scenarios, off-grid living and more. This is the system that even Mad Max could use to grow nutritious food after a catastrophic collapse.
The 3D printable parts can be created using print filament made partially out of recycled water bottles and milk jugs. This means you can now transform landfill into food grow systems. Turning “trash” into “food” is truly revolutionary!

How I use Permaculture Principals to Grow More Food my Small Garden

How I use Permaculture Principals to Grow More Food my Small Garden
I have used some of the concepts and principles in permaculture to build my garden and the practices I use. Central to my gardening methods are the principals of permanent agriculture through the use of perennials [2] and sustainable methods of food production [3].
Many of the principles I use in my garden are inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka the author of The One-Straw Revolution and his do-nothing farming where by one grows food with the least amount of effort while avoiding the use of manufactured inputs.
Many of you have already heard this already on my good friend Patrick’s channel in fact the method and book inspired his channel’s name One Yard Revolution. [4]
Today I am going to go through how I have implemented some of these principals in my garden and working to research and test the methods and practices to see if science supports their use.
I started in gardening much like many of you. I wanted to garden organically so I purchased organic products and followed methods similar to conventional large scale farming.
Following a number of conversations with my parents, grandparents and finally the YouTube community I was inspired to investigate the principals of sustainable gardening and was interested to see if it could be done in my northern growing zone.
As I began investigating these principles I liked the idea that this method of food production was more environmentally friendly while producing more food than I was able to previously.
I did find abandoning practices I had used for years tough. When abandoning a practice I was worried the new method would lead to a failure and I would lose the crop for the year. In order to help the transition I started by testing the new method on a small patch to see what happened.
I started adding perennials to the garden. This took a few years and some planning to maximize the use of the space I have dedicated to this. I took roughly equal shares between annual beds, trial beds and perennial beds. The central beds are dedicated to annuals with the trial beds immediately adjacent and the perennial beds on the perimeter.
To date I have added 33 varieties of 12 different crops and continue to look for other crops to add in including this rhubarb plant that my parents took from their patch to bring to me.
In order to produce as much food as possible in a sustainable method I have organized my plants by size and nutritional requirements.
I have chosen to plant larger trees and shrubs outside of the garden directly in my native soil. Their extensive root networks often extending 1.5 – 2x larger than the diameter of the tree are able to seek out and find the nutrients they require. This allows me to plant them in areas
