Circa 2010, a group of friends including myself asked ourselves: “What are the most useful ways to invest in society in order to counter rapidly increasing unemployment?” Naturally, our reflection did not steer us towards the stock market, but instead towards a way of repositioning ourselves towards producing goods on a small scale. For myfood, this meant empowering people to grow food. From this point on, we started experimenting with anything that seemed to fit within the world of makers and tech developers.
We offer simple solutions that give individuals the key to producing their own food to feed their family and community. To create this little wonder, we took inspiration from the most effective permaculture techniques in order to regenerate the soil, and linked it with aquaponics (a symbiosis between fish and plants with vertical growing towers). Furthermore, to minimize our solution’s daily maintenance, we added Open-Source hardware that automates certain routine tasks.
