Web Feed: California Urban Farm Grows Produce Without All of That Pesky Dirt

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he builds a ridiculously complicated irrigation system using said fish to grow produce without the need for soil.

That’s just what an industrious farming aficionado in Oakland, California has done. It’s called Aquaponics, an innovative mix between hydroponic gardening and fish farming. This is not your grandfather’s urban farm. The farm’s creator, Eric Maundu, outfitted it with sensors and microprocessors aplenty. These gadgets and gizmos fix problems automatically and even send a warning Tweet if anything occurs that the system can’t handle. Wait, tweeting can be useful? Somebody better get Kutcher on the line.

Here is a video of the farm in action, along with a brief overview on how it was made. Soil, your days are numbered.
