OPTION - ONE SET OF 3D PRINTED FLOAT VALVE PARTS
 
Your Mini-Farm Grow Box ships with a commercially-made float valve that automatically maintains the appropriate water level in your grow bin. This float valve represents the old system of manufacturing, using centralized factories, injection molding, metal parts, etc.
 
At the same time, your Mini-Farm Grow Box may OPTIONALLY ship with a full set of the 3D-printed float valve parts invented by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger (you must select this option if you wish to receive these 3D-printed parts). These parts are designed around common objects which are easily acquired or scavenged: a pencil eraser, a paperclip, a garden hose washer and a discarded vitamin bottle. These parts were 3D printed and represent the new system of manufacturing: the decentralized fabrication of functional parts using consumer-grade 3D printers.
 
These parts were all printed in either Taulman t-glase filament or similar PETT variations. The 3D printers used to print these parts are all consumer-grade 3D printers such as the Type A Machine, Lulzbot Mini, Ultimaker 2 and FlashForge printers.
 
PRINT YOUR OWN!
 
The Health Ranger released the 3D object files for these parts on FoodRising.org. If you wish to print your own replacement parts, find the object files and instructions on that website.

About the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box
  • A breakthrough in self-reliant food production.
     
  • Grows food without using electricity or soil.
     
  • Self-water system requires very little attention after planting seeds.
     
  • Comes with everything you need except sunlight, water and seeds.
     
  • Requires no weeding.
     
  • Eliminates bending over; grows food on top of benches or tables.
     
  • Easily expandable to multiple grow containers using a single water reservoir.
     
  • Uses just 1/20th the water of traditional soil irrigation methods.
     
  • Contains no complex moving parts: no motors, no pumps, no gears.
     
  • Designed around simple replacement parts that can be easily found in third-world nations, post-disaster scenarios or survival situations.
     
  • Grows better-than-organic lettuce and other crops for about 10 cents' worth of plant food.
     
  • Produces food with up to 500% more mineral nutrition than store-bought fresh produce.
     
  • Key components are based on the 3D printable parts freely downloadable from FoodRising.org and printed on 3D printers.
 
Revolutionary advantages of the Mini-Farm Grow Box low-tech technology:
  • Power failures have NO EFFECT on the Mini-Farm Grow Box, unlike with hydroponics or aquaponics which rely on electricity to keep your plants (and fish!) alive.
     
  • The entire system is EMP-proof because it contains no electronic components whatsoever, making it the ultimate "survival food grow system" for preppers.
     
  • Works everywhere there's sunlight. Automatically practical almost everywhere.
     
  • Seeds are planted directly into the grow medium, so there's no transplanting required. Grow Boxes can be easily transported so you can start them indoors, then move them outdoors when desired.
     
  • Grow lights are not part of the Grow Box system, but it is fully compatible with Hydrofarm brand grow light systems.
     
  • The Mini-Farm Grow Box was designed around easily-scavenged parts such as paper clips, pencil erasers, garden hose rubber washers and discarded vitamin bottles. Using 3D printable parts designed by the Health Ranger, these parts can be easily assembled into grow systems to produce food without electricity. This means the grow system works in third-world countries, post nuclear war scenarios, grid-down scenarios, off-grid living and more. This is the system that even Mad Max could use to grow nutritious food after a catastrophic collapse.
     
  • The 3D printable parts can be created using print filament made partially out of recycled water bottles and milk jugs. This means you can now transform landfill into food grow systems. Turning "trash" into "food" is truly revolutionary!
 
The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box was created by Texas inventor Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger"), who is also an atomic spectrometry lab director, award-winning investigative journalist and holder of multiple pending patents.
 
The invention owes credit to the teachings of Dr. hideo Imai of the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC), Dr. B. A. Kratky of the University of Hawaii, both of whom studied innovative non-circulating plant growth strategies developed in Taiwan. Additional credit is due to Christian Berg, author of "Guide to Non-Circulating Hydroponics" and Terry Moore Cadle, author of "The Secret of Non-Circulating Hydroponics."
 
The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow System is a bottom-fed, constant-height, self-watering, non-circulating hydroponics system that has been streamlined and simplified with modern manufacturing automation and 3D printing innovations created by Mike Adams.
