This Computer Will Grow Your Food

Caleb Harper, director of CitiFARM at the MIT Media Lab, is and engineer. But he’s also a farmer, and he’s working at turning his fellow mechanical, electrical and chemical engineers, architects, urbanists, economists and plant scientists into farmers too. Together they are exploring new ways to grow food that is delicious and nutrient dense. The “Food Computers” they are building have already been tried out by middle and high school students, and you can even build your own. Watch this 15 minute video to see how it works, and what the future might look like as these engineer farmers look at ways to grow food and turn people into farmers.
