2 large tabletop Deep Water Culture (DWC) growing system are being used as a showcase of high tech growing at the Roca gallery in London.

The installation

The growing systems were designed to be aesthetically appealing demonstrations of how hydroponic technology can be used on a larger scale. The self contained units use a mixture of full spectrum LEDs, nutrient rich water, and aeration to provide the perfect environment for high yield growing. The units are on display at the ‘Recipes for building a food capital event’ which is a showcase of creative visions, architectural schemes and live projects from around the world that explore the sustainable integration of food into the urban mix.
