What we have done:

As part of an urban farming experiment, we have tested different Aquaponic installations in the Pflanzenatelier of the Honigfabrik from January 2017 to December 2018. Due to time constraints, we have now stopped the project and dismantled all installations. For further information regarding this project, please visit our dedicated website.

In frame of this project, the following technologies have been used:

  • LED lighting for plants
  • 3D printed bell siphon (Copyright Rob Torcellini)
  • Raspberry Pi based water temperature / air humidity monitoring system

Status of the Installation in September 2018
