Consists of 4 different components
1. The Living Soil System
2. The Micro Hydro lettuce grow system
3. The Pi-Top educational kit
4. The farmOS farm/garden management suite
The way the package and program is designed is setup to create a step by step process of working with Regenerating soil, seeding plants for microhydro system and growing plant starts into potted plants filled with the living soil medium. All these components will be connected to the Pi-TOP unit and also be tasked and tracked using the farmOS platform. The Google Classroom will be filled with Further classes, video tutorials and other educational materials for the teachers and students to work from.
Providence will be supplying the Plant starts, Soils and the Systems/Services for this program. Providence is setup to provide these services on a monthly and or annual basis.
