So the two toughest parts of the system are light placement and plumbing. Jonathan Kadish came by the school to help me think about the plumbing. In an email a week later, I told him I was going to scrap the vertical idea and just go with horizontal grow beds because I was concerned about the difficulties. This was his response…

“Vertical farming is the future and it will make your system much more attractive and futuristic. I implore you to reconsider, so much so I have done these renderings… I think it will be great in this format! I’ll make you a deal, I will build the doors and donate two 4 bulb 2 foot fixtures. 186 watts of T5s should do it for the vertical area. I will come down sometime in around the 19th to install them. Do we have a deal?”
