The Mini-Farm Grow Box is an all-new soil-free, non-electric home-based food growing system developed by Texan consumer health advocate Mike Adams of the non-profit organization Food Raising. This contraption allows home gardeners to grow food without having to weed out invaders and without have to worry about complex pumps, motors and other parts. Moreover, this system works with about 1/20th the amount of water required in conventional agriculture, and about half as much soil space.

The Mini-Farm Grow Box is based on the principles of constant bottom feeding non-circulation hydroponics. The system maintains a constant water level in grow boxes without extra circulation or air pumps.

This system works well anywhere with access to sunlight and allows growers to grow food in waist-high platforms. This sort of convenience is exactly what's needed if home-grown food is to catch on a wider scale.

The 'Eliooo' Book Teaches How to Grow Food at Home with Hydroponics


The 'Eliooo' book by Antonio Scarponi is designed to teach people how to grow food at home using IKEA boxes and hydroponics, a farming technique that uses water in the place of soil. This technique is doesn't require a lot of space and is very low maintenance. After setup, you don't have to remember to water your plants.

As a creator, Scarponi says that he "likes to design things that everyone can make." The 'Eliooo' manual makes growing your own food at home very accessible, especially since the main components of this system are inexpensive pieces that come from IKEA. Unlike some instruction manuals that are hard to follow, the directions are charmingly illustrated and easy to follow along with

Cut the Humidity

We bought a dehumidifier and put it in our basement two months ago. I'm amazed at the difference it has made. Not only has the bug population almost completely disappeared, but the basement doesn't feel moldy. We're even talking about setting it up to use as a cooler summer room!


Finally, the financial doomsday clock does appear to be ticking…

I want to share with you an excerpt from an article that just appeared in the Telegraph entitled “Doomsday clock for global market crash strikes one minute to midnight as central banks lose control“.  You see, the Telegraph is not just one of the most important newspapers in the UK – it is truly one of the most important newspapers in the entire world.  When it speaks on financial matters, millions of people listen very carefully.  So for the Telegraph to declare that the countdown to a “global market crash” is “one minute to midnight” is a very, very big deal…

When the banking crisis crippled global markets seven years ago, central bankers stepped in as lenders of last resort. Profligate private-sector loans were moved on to the public-sector balance sheet and vast money-printing gave the global economy room to heal.

Time is now rapidly running out. From China to Brazil, the central banks have lost control and at the same time the global economy is grinding to a halt. It is only a matter of time before stock markets collapse under the weight of their lofty expectations and record valuations.
