The Nemo’s Garden Pilot Plant in Noli is starting to operate soon
Land infrastructures will be operative within May 23rd while the 9 biospheres will be fully operational at the beginning o June
Biosphere #3 has been already seeded (72 plants )
We have in the #6 a quite old Tobacco plant and a wonderful ALOE who was seeded in the summer 2021 !
The Pilot Plant will be integrated with an artificial reef 9 meters long , 2 wide and 1.2 high for the analysis of water current speed and possibility of production energy for the utilities of the lab.
On 7 biospheres it will be installed a new hydroponic cultivation system , already tested in 2022 and increasing the number of crops to 100 each biosphere . A total 0f 772 + biosph #6 observatory .
The main production will be focused to Mint , Basil , Thyme , Lemon Balm.
Sea life is still very active. The crabs are still “patrolling” several biospheres and are welcoming Emilio or Paolo when they operate in the domes.
On June 5th we shall welcome the class of an Italian High school. It will be the first educational events of 2023 .
We shall communicate the full calendar activities within the next couple of weeks.
November 9th 2022
Nemo’s Garden pilot plant of Noli has been prepared for the winter season . 3 of the 9 biospheres and the entire land infrastructure has been removed. The harvests are proceeding every 3-4 weeks. We have now 259 plants growing and 46 just seeded . The water temperature is quite unusual (approx. 20 degrees at 6/8 meters ). We activated the artificial lights to repeat the experiments of the 2021 (Noli bay is quite dark during the winter season) . Sea life is still very active. Okra has been moved from the shallow removed biosphere to the #6 . We already collected the seeds. Aloe (already more than 15 months old is on its left side . Tobacco is growing very well. The crabs are still “patrolling” several biospheres and are welcoming Emilio or Paolo when the operate in the domes. We are expecting to have a new check and harvest on 19 / 20 of November . Join Emilio during his activity by checking on internet.
Aug 1st 2022
9 biospheres are in actions at Nemo’s Garden and 600+ crops are growing . We are testing new solutions as well as a new hydroponic system in the bio# 2 where we have 67 different growing plants . In the biospheres 7 and 9 we are testing new desalinization systems and production is proceeding . This summer the water temperature is extremely high, the environment is full filled of sea life and giant schools of anchovies are swimming through the underwater lab of nemo’s Garden. The biosphere #1 is a green house with Cacao plants (growing from seeds), mandarins and other beautiful green crops from all around the globe. We are testing microgreens in the bio #2 and vertical farming in the bio# 8.
