With This Futuresque Garden, You Could Theoretically Grow All The Food You'll Ever Need

Get growing.

SPACE10, a "future-living lab and exhibition space," is on a mission to rectify the major challenges that come with urban living environments and create a more sustainable future. 

The company recently released The Greenroom, a spherical garden users can build to grow their own food in style. It is "an urban farm pavilion that looks into how cities can feed themselves through food producing architecture," according to an article published to Medium, and "this [means] most people — in theory — could produce almost anything themselves."

The article also explains the benefits of sourcing food locally: reducing food miles, pressure on the environment, and education, while the food itself is fresh, organic, and healthy.

The Greenroom, a 2.8 x 2.5-meter space (perfect for urban spaces), can be built in just 17 steps. The structure's overlapping slices allow water and light through to each of its levels. 

"It 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."

In fact, the University of Washington's Urban Forestry/Urban Greening Research department suggests that nature helps "alleviate mental fatigue by relaxing and restoring the mind," and urban nature, in particular, encourages "learning, inquisitiveness, and alertness." 

Sounds like it's time to get growing.
