An Iranian student has made a soil-free hanging garden which is able to grow vegetables with a minimal amount of water.

Nikan Aghababaei, student of Trent University, has designed and made a garden where vegetables can be grown inexpensively without soil and just with small amount of water. In fact, the garden can grow vegetables and produce crops in any environment.

The designer hopes to eradicate famine in the world one day and help create wealth for people living in suburban areas. Agricultural products that had been produced at the International Space Station were the basis of this technology. Astronauts at the International Space Station grew seeds in small pillows instead of soil, which help seeds to grow and reduced the amount of water as well.

Aghababaei sprayed a nutrient liquid after planting a seed, and the plant’s roots received oxygen from the room.
