A garden for those who have no garden! Balcony garden

TASPO Awards 2019 Finalist - our Blog

We are very pleased that our balcony garden project has been nominated for the TASPO Awards 2019 in the category "Best Digital Concept". This further motivates us to inspire others for the hydroponic cultivation of herbs, salads and vegetables on balconies or terraces.

Our herb- and vegetable garden without earth on the balcony thrives magnificently. In addition to herbs, which we always need, we now harvest summer fruits such as tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins.

29.07.2019 - Tomatoes on the balcony

Hydroponically grown tomatoes on the self-supplying balcony. This year we did a lot better. The harvest seems to be much better than last year. It doesn't just depend on the cultivation system - but also on the plant care. 

Harvesting better tomatoes

24.07.2019 - Water saving with hydroponic cultivation of approx. 70%.

Extreme weather, water shortages and droughts. Hydroponic cultivation saves resources. The hobby gardener can no longer keep up with watering at these high temperatures of 35-38 °C. The hydroponic cultivation of plants can help here.

22.07.2019 - Every day a different vegetable fresh on the table

The summer months bring a rich harvest. Some vegetables have become too big and have to be harvested, like our pointed cabbage. All kinds of herbs as well as kohlrabis, cucumbers, courgettes, tomatoes and soon aubergine are now freshly harvested on the table.

04.07.2019 - Intermediate result hydroponics balcony project

The first half year of our Blakongarten project is over. Time to give an interim result about the harvest and consumption.

Our menue is now determined by the ripe herbs, salads and vegetables and we are becoming more and more creative and varied in our cooking. Thanks to the freshly harvested processing we have many new taste experiences.

Target for our "Balkony Garden Project"

How much greens can be produced in a small space in an urban environment within a calendar year?
In our case, the areas used for growing food consist of two balconies on which vegetables and herbs are grown hydroponically, without soil, for our own needs. The cultivation from seeds will be indoor.

The target is to grow 200 kg of vegetables and herbs on approx. 6.5 m² of effective cultivation area over one year. Approximately the quantity that 2 persons need per year.

We will document everything from planning to execution over 1 year and provide it to interested parties. So please visit this project page from time to time.

A garden for those without a garden "Balkony Garden Projekt 2019"

We make the self-experiment to grow as much food as possible on our own, such as vegetables and herbs, locally and on site, i.e. "zero-mile-diet = zero-mile-nutrition" on two balconies, i.e. as "Zfarming = zero-mile-agriculture".

Urban Gardening - Urban Farming

Urban Gardening and Urban Farming are true alternatives to conventional agriculture. Vertical - local - ecological - fresh. Also see our post on Urban Gardening und Urban Farming.

Zfarming
zero-acreage-farming

If the cultivation of food doesn't take place on conventional agricultural areas or in the garden, but on roofs, balconies, terraces, in unused buildings or in apartments, then one calls this also Zfarming.

zero-mile-diet

A zero-mile diet stands for self-growing of food. Zero miles, because the cultivation takes place locally in the own garden or in the urban environment.

Here the reduction of the "carbon footprint = CO² footprint" and the self-determination of what and how is cultivated are the most important factors, e.g. pesticide-free and herbicide-free. It couldn't be fresher or more local!
