Another fantastic video of pioneers working on window gardening, that is growing vegetables, year round, in low light condition in one's own apartment. The idea was developed by Britta Riley. As per the TED website, "Britta Riley wanted to grow her own food (in her tiny apartment). So she and her friends developed a system for growing plants in discarded plastic bottles -- researching, testing and tweaking the system using social media, trying many variations at once and quickly arriving at the optimal system. Call it distributed DIY. And the results? Delicious."
