Welcome to Seeds Project
30 May, 2023
We are delighted to bring you updates on the inspiring progress of our project in Tunisia. Over the past few months, our teams have been hard at work, and their commitment has birthed exciting developments that showcase the potential of sustainable and regenerative practices.
Establishment of the SMART Regenerative Garden
In line with our mission to create spaces that nourish both people and the environment, we have established a SMART Regenerative Garden in Tunisia. This project integrates cutting-edge technology with traditional practices to create a garden that not only produces nourishing food but also enhances the local ecosystem.
The garden uses permaculture principles, creating a symbiotic relationship between various plant species and the local environment. This synergy bolivars the sustainability of the garden, ensuring it thrives with minimal external input and maintains a healthy, nutrient-rich soil profile.
Project Living Lab: Design and Execution of a Regenerative Garden
In a first-of-its-kind initiative, we’ve set up a living laboratory centered around the design and execution of a regenerative garden. This project provides a hands-on, experiential learning platform where local communities, researchers, and students can witness and contribute to the development of sustainable horticultural practices.
Drip Irrigation and SMART Monitoring System
One of the crucial aspects of this project has been implementing an efficient watering system. We’ve incorporated a drip irrigation system, which ensures minimal water waste and maximizes plant health. To further optimize resource use, a SMART monitoring system has been installed to track soil moisture levels, ensuring water is only used when absolutely necessary.
