IKEA just released free plans for a sustainable garden that can feed a neighborhood – Nexus Newsfeed

Learn how to build a spherical garden in 17 steps with this open source design provided by IKEA.

There’s a lot to appreciate about the Swedish company IKEA. From its numerous projects which have helped raise awareness about the Syrian peoples’ plight to its commitment to the environment by using mushroom-based packaging that decomposes within weeks, the furniture business is progressive, to say the least.

Now, IKEA has released open source plans for The Growroom, which is a large, multi-tiered spherical garden that was designed to sustainably grow enough food to feed a neighborhood. The plans were made free on Thursday with the hope that members of the public will invest their time and resources to create one in each neighborhood, if not in every person’s backyard.

The tools required to create the spherical garden include plywood, rubber hammers, metal screws, and diligence to follow the instructions comprised of 17 steps. The Huffington Post reports that The Growroom isn’t shipped in a flat pack like most IKEA products. Instead, users are required to download the files needed to cut the plywood pieces to size and are encouraged to visit a local workshop where the wood can be professionally cut. The free instructions online walk the builder through the remaining steps.

According to a press release, there are already plans to build Growrooms in Taipei, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, and Helsinki. You can add your city to the list by jumping on the opportunity and crafting a Growroom in your neighborhood.

The project is the brainchild of Space10, based in Denmark. The company writes:

“Local food represents a serious alternative to the global food model. It reduces food miles, our pressure on the environment, and educates our children of where food actually comes from. … The challenge is that traditional farming takes up a lot of space and space is a scarce resource in our urban environments.

The Growroom …is designed to support our everyday sense of well being in the cities by creating a small oasis or ‘pause’ architecture in our high paced societal scenery, and enables people to connect with nature as we smell and taste the abundance of herbs and plants. The pavilion, built as a sphere, can stand freely in any context and points in a direction of expanding contemporary and shared architecture.”

Following are some photos of the open source design:

Radiation Over Parts Of US & Europe

 Monday, February 27, 2017

The reports of radiation over parts of the US and Europe are genuine and are the results of an explosion in a nuclear submarine.

The material is similar to radioactive iodine – short term exposure isn’t harmful however long term exposure is.

Trump Right Again: Sweden Deporting 80,000 Refugees | Opinion – Conservative

Trump stated the obvious. Sweden has a Muslim refugee problem. But the Leftist media avoids the main issue…again. At his Florida rally on Saturday, President Trump referred to rising crime due to Muslim refugees in Sweden. Somehow, the Left tried to conflate this as Trump spreading fake news about a non-existent terror attack. Despite the alleged gaffe, the damage done by Sweden’s open border refugee policy is real…
