What are Window Farms??

Window Farms are vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window gardens built using low-impact or recycled
local materials.

I saw this window farm site & I thought "What a cool idea!!" but how would it work here in Montana?? Our windows get cold in the winter & we get very little sun, could we make it work here?

See window farm website & more info HERE: http://www.windowfarms.org/

WE ARE GOING TO TRY IT THIS WINTER!! WE ARE LOOKING FOR OTHER HOUSE HOLDS TO JOIN US!

Most people make theses from plastic, we're thinking of using glass.

It is an experimental device that will make my mind that most powerful force on earth! More powerful than this tiny ad!
