Yves Behar moves towards the connected garden with Edyn First the connected home; now the connected garden: designer Yves Behar and entrepreneur Jason Aramburu have created products that monitor soil conditions and automatically water plants when they get thirsty (+ movie). Designed for use in a domestic garden or a small farm, Yves Behar's Edyn system uses two components to gather data about climate and soil conditions then irrigate the soil when necessary. The components connect via WiFi and communicate with each other to regulate and optimise the self-watering process. Edyn is a smart garden system founded by soil scientist Jason Aramburu and designed by Behar's studio Fuseproject. The Edyn Garden Sensor tracks light, humidity, temperature, soil nutrition and moisture conditions. It tests the soil by sending out an electrical signal then measuring how it is altered or affected by water and soil additives, like fertiliser, lime or compost. A separate water valve uses the data collected by the sensor to control the watering system.

Aquaculture Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L’aquaculture (ou halieuculture, ou aquiculture, terme en usage au début du XXe siècle et préconisé par l’Académie française[1]) est le terme générique qui désigne toutes les activités de production animale ou végétale en milieu aquatique. L'aquaculture se pratique en bord de mer (on parle dans ce cas de « cultures marines » ou mariculture), des rivières ou des étangs. Certains systèmes de récifs artificiels ou dispositifs attracteurs et de concentration (DCP, éventuellement associés à des élevages extensifs in situ (« sea ranching ») peuvent être assimilés à de l'aquaculture, dès lors qu'il y a offre directe en nourriture ou en support (indirectement produite à partir de remontée d'eau chargée en minéraux par exemple). Elle concerne notamment les productions de poissons (pisciculture), de coquillages (conchyliculture), de crustacés (astaciculture et pénéiculture), de coraux (coraliculture) ou encore d'algues (algoculture).

Aquaponie pratique Raspberry Pi Controlled Aquaponics Aquaponics /ˈækwəˈpɒnɨks /, is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrogen-fixing bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system. This build uses the IBC method of Aquaponics, with modifications to include a Raspberry Pi for controlling a pump, solenoid drain, and temperature probes for water and air temperatures. The relays and timing is controlled with python scripting. The video below shows the script execution towards the end:

Véritable petit écosystème contrôlé, poissons et végétaux vivent en réelle symbiose, dépendants l’un de l’autre pour survivre. Comment ça fonctionne? Aquaponie vient d’une contraction des termes aquaculture (élevage de poissons) et hydroponie (culture de végétaux dans l’eau). Avantages Plusieurs avantages sont attribuables à l’aquaponie. La principale difficulté en aquaponie est de maintenir l’équilibre de l’écosystème pour empêcher la carence ou l’excès de nutriments. Quelles plantes? Il est possible de récolter à peu près tout ce qu’on veut; fleurs, plantes, fines herbes, fruits, légumes, etc. Toits d’aquaponie en Allemagne En zone industrielle, sur le toit d’une vieille usine désaffecté à Berlin, de jeunes entrepreneurs ont décidé de mettre sur pied une ferme d’aquaponie pour y faire pousser des aliments. « C’est très pratique.

open source garden automation project What is GardenBot? GardenBot is an open source garden monitoring system. This site is a collection of tutorials for how to build things (like a soil moisture sensor), software for running GardenBot, resources, links, and more. To get started, you will want to browse the How-To section to see what is required to build the various modules. The ultimate goal of the GardenBot project is to be a complete garden monitoring and automation system. A key design consideration is to keep everything as easy as possible -- especially for users new to Arduino and DIY electronics projects. GardenBot is currently a work in progress, and we are always looking for volunteers -- please contact me if you'd like to help. Just so you know, there are several (many) other garden automation projects out there on the web. Is GardenBot a robot? The word robot usually is used for machines that move about. Who came up with this? I did... er, I mean hi. I discovered Arduino, and immediately became engrossed.

When I first started working with an aquaponics system in 2006, most people would look at me cross-eyed when I told them what I was doing. And while I still get that look at times, aquaponics is moving from the obscure shadows to bask in the limelight…well, the limelight of foodies and sustainable farmers. But a limelight nonetheless. It is one solution to growing food in a closed-loop system, but by no means the only system. Looking over the conical settling tank. The material inputs of an aquaponics system include the fish (at fingerling size), fish feed, seeds and substrate to germinate the seeds and support the roots of the plants, water, and energy to run the water pumps and air blowers. One of the simplicities of this seemingly complex process is that the water can flow from high to low, requiring the need of just one pump for an entire aquaponics system.
