Table with a tiny growing vegetable garden and integrated grow light.
Table is a 300mm deep tray made from galvanized steel, on 100mm tall thin legs. The tray holds 200mm of soil and 100mm of natural water filter. This natural filter composed of gravel, rocks and sand would be naturally filtering the water that can be reused to water the table again.
Simple tray is combined with 3 solid objects:
Approximately 50% of the water coming to the system is being evacuated and the rest can be filtered, reused, and cycled back. After filling the water collector with full 20l of water, the tiny garden of size ca.1m2 might sufficiently circle the water for approx. 8 days, depending on outside temperature and humidity. This time might go down when the plants would be at maturity stage as they would consume more water.
A grow light with a reflector stands on the round leg attached inside of the tray. Light source position is adjustable within the reflector. Deep reflector made of galvanized steel on outside and shiny aluminium sheet inside, protects user from the light glare.
Varieties to be planted out: Dwarf Tomatoes, Baby Carrots, Radishes, Basil, Lettuce
