What problem does your design idea solve?

My design idea proposes a sustainable domestic automatic watering system for small horticulture stations in apartments.

What are the potential benefits?

Using my sustainable domestic automatic watering system you can have a domestic horticulture station furnishing fresh ortages. The micro irrigation device delivers water onto the soil surface very near the plant or below the soil surface directly into the plant root zone optimizing water consumption.

City planners around the world have been urged to make horticulture an integral part of their development and planning strategies.

More than half the world's population now live in urban areas and according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization city dwellers could help to grow food. (Daniel Dickinson, United Nations)

FAO's Assistant Director General Modibo Traoré said that vegetables and fruit grown in pots, courtyards, tires and on marginal land are the most important source of vitamins and micronutrients for millions of people.
