Home Crops: The Greenhouse and Sustainable Food


At the moment we decided to build our own garden at home and start growing food, there are many dimensions to take into account to develop a good sustainable project. Growing and harvesting your own food is a great alternative for those who wish to get away from the high prices and artificial chemicals that food companies of the new era has.



Logistics in the construction of a greenhouse


Building a greenhouse for the production of homemade crops offers a variety of advantages that makes the process much simpler and friendlier. If you want to have crops of legumes, vegetables, fruits and flower plants; The process can be controlled without the need to take special precautions for the climatic changes of the seasons.


The main thing is to make the necessary measurements of the land that is counted, since there are different sizes of small and large greenhouses. They come in materials from acrylic to plastic. Preparing a terrace or a garden with enough space and land is ideal. The size will also be determined by the amount of food or flowers we want to grow, and can start with smaller plantations with the most necessary products for the table.


Advantages of home cultivation


In this type of home-grown plantations, seasonal legumes can be harvested throughout the year, as well as fruits that only occur in lands of foreign places. The manipulation of the human hand, together with a closed and controlled environment, allows us to modify a series of variables that allow us to expand the food spectrum to grow in a garden. This also represents a unique business opportunity, being able to market products that are not available in different seasons due to climate changes.


The fact that water can be condensed inside a greenhouse avoids the risk of dehydration of the crop, and can even do without an irrigation system even though there are high temperatures in the environment. In addition, the greenhouse protects the plantations from atmospheric adversities such as cold, rain, humidity or snow.


Materials required for each home culture


While preparing the logistics of the construction of a greenhouse, the process of cultivation or planting can likewise begin. The main materials to be used are:


1. Bucket or container with an approximate depth of 30 centimeters, necessarily with dark coating to protect the roots from the sun's rays.


2. Air pump similar to those used in fish tanks. Its main use is to avoid contamination of the deposited water and maintain a good level of oxygenation


3. Hydroponic solutions, which can be purchased already prepared with all the necessary compounds and nutrients. If you do not have enough budget, you can also prepare it at home.


4. Substrate as equivalent to the organic fertilizer used in traditional cultivations. It is the component that will keep all the necessary nutrients concentrated.


5. Seeds of legumes, fruits or plants generally desired for home cultivation.


6. Wooden board with the exact dimensions of the container, with its plastic or rubber stopper.


From the voice of Francisco Rolando Archila Dehesa:


"The homemade crops allow a much more direct participation in the man in the control of his feeding. Far from being a retreat or distancing from current technological resources, it serves as a bridge between new resources and the primary and essential process of which man uses his own means to feed himself, as it has been for millions of years. Evolution must take two steps backwards to achieve three forward. "
