WOW, what an opportunity to start a 'soil free' garden that will allow the light to be seen from top to bottom, by growing plants, any plants, in h20 clear trays layered on scaffolding (rotating if possible). the air won't hurt the plants or h20.
I'd do it by contacting a private and public unions, colleges, high or tech schools, and design a combined, in whole or part, a mentoring, training and credential educational program, in a local community. What an opportunity for business' that supply such a project w/the materials and bodies, to obtain a large part of the funding if not all of it, from local, private and public agencies and organizations.
Inclusive of the schools, I'd start by contacting each of the Federal and State Forrest, Marine. Port. Parks Educational divisions, then onto material suppliers of both current, standard and new products needed to build such a project, and develop a single or tiered funded or phase "trial study" to fund the project for free for those who want to participate, explore new gardening methods, uses of recycled h20, seedlings known to grow w/and w/out soil and h20.
Then establish an outdoor food market for the students/volunteers, that which will encourage others to do the same w/or w/out abandoned buildings, while teaching students/volunteers how to think out of the box and supply a secondary projects funding from the sale of the produce or in/outdoor plants.
The cool part is, when it rains it won't water log the plant trays, it'll just overflow from the h20 filled plant trays into the h20 catch basin, built underneath or within the base of the scaffolding, that would be used to continually recycle the start up supply of h20 for the plant trays. What a neat project. Good Luck. Joyce Anderson, Barberton, Ohio
