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
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.

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
