The Nemo’s garden

To grow crops on fields is too trivial and old-fashioned. A new method of growing food on the sea bed was invented in Italy in a Nemo’s garden. That is not a science-fiction movie or futuristic idea. The Nemo’s garden is a real project that has worked for about three years. The underwater farm was set in Noli, Italy.

In this sea, Nemo’s garden or farm people grow successfully strawberries, basil, beans, garlic and lettuce in underwater capsules. Now there are 5 sea capsules, where on the sea floor all these plants are growing for a test batch. Plants in the Nemo’s garden consume condensate water which is got by gradual sea water evaporation. That allows them to endure harsh temperature drops of daytime and nigh time. The temperature inside the capsule of the Nemo’s garden is 77 Fahrenheit which makes perfect conditions for this place to grow plants.

This project was started as an alternative source of growing food in those territories, where natural conditions do not allow people to grow food in a traditional way. Such conditions are lack of soft water, hearty ground and harsh temperatures drops. The Nemo’s garden hasn’t all these problems.

Biological envelopes, or sea capsules, differ from each other in sizes and they float in the 6 or 12 yards under the water. The control centre of the Nemo’s garden is on the land. It helps scientists to monitor the conditions of planting. They do not have to submerge in water in order to gather current information about the plants in capsules.

The biggest advantage of the Nemo’s garden is that it does not require much money for maintenance. The dream of the creators of this underwater farm is to make it a true option for the future. The authors of the Nemo’s garden are going to continue researching and experimenting in this sea construction in order to spread it around the world.
