Our gardening objective is to learn together share knowledge about growing food and reproducing endemic species and self-sustainability in small, but scalable systems. We welcome anyone interested in learning and creating with us!
We have a green edible wall thanks to our aquaponics system. This allows us to make optimum use of our greenhouse and provides us with fresh herbs every day. An aquaponics system is a quasi-closed circuit. Fish live in the water basin, in our case carp, who are fed with food remains and duck weed. The fish excrement are transformed by bacteria into nutrients for the herbs.
We experiment with small scale modular growing systems, built from recycled materials and designed to be both low in maintenance and to enable ease of plant growing.If we move, we take the garden with us!
Worm compost provides the basis of the fertility of our growing systems. Compost worms are very effective in transforming kitchen peels into compost. The basic system has three compartments with the green waste in different stages of maturity.
The KasKantine proposes a formula for surfacecoverage of built space of 33% greenroof/33%solarproduction and 33% transparent roof. The green roof is designed as much as possible in line with the local green infrastructure.
