Nemo’s Garden is going to host life again.
In June the entire underwater lab will be operative again.
6 biospheres will be in action and will run more and exciting experiments ..
Right now you have a look of #3 and #6 where , after some sleeping period from November to March , all crops are growing again and some of them are already blooming ! Oregan , majorana , santoreggia and orchids are in good health
Step by step all biospheres will start to show new images of the incredible nature of Nemo’s Garden. You will see the crops growing and all live daily operations . Even the surrounding environment is waking up. Thousands of squid eggs are hanging below the Tree of the Life and crabs, fishes and sea horses are patrolling the underwater structure . Water temperature is moving up (from the lowest 14 C ) and the sunlight is penetrating the water by warming up the biosphere inner part and turning on the CO2/O2 cycle

Nemo’s Garden is hosting life again.
In June, after the end of the lockdown in Italy, we finally could settle it up.
We pull out from the water thousand meters of cables destroyed in a storm last October. Then we cleaned and reconnected the biospheres.
Now we have 3 monitoring stations for the physical data of the six biospheres that are hosting more than 500 plants.
The plants are growing thanks to the light and the ventilation inside the spheres.
A true story
In October 2019 an uncontrollable storm destroyed Nemo’s Garden Structure. It was not the first time the structure had been compromised by storms and the chances of keeping the project alive became very low. Luckily, we did not give up.
We rebuilt Nemo’s Garden better and more stable than before as a sign of hope and resilience.
There is a story that influenced us to keep with the project Nemo’s Garden: a message we received from Marco, a fisherman from Noli, during the lock down due to Coronavirus Pandemic in which he shared the school assignment of his 11-year-old son, Lorenzo. Click

The Winter setup is done. A few days ago the Team's removed 3 biospheres out of 6. The uw habitat will be fully operative again on Spring 2020. No worries, the 3 deeper biospheres will remain underwater for further tests on plants and technology. Stay tuned with our future posts and discoveries HERE
