Smart Aquaponics with Dashboard @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Aquaponics is a technique of organic farming that can be used both indoors and outdoors. This way folks can grow their own organic plants without using any chemical fertilizers. At its best, it uses less space, but offers more growth and less water usage. Farm indoor or outdoor, in very less space, with more growth and less water usage. Here’s the project, from Team Neuron: Suraj S Jain, puneeth, SONAL KUMAR via hackster.io
The system consists of two tubs. The tub in the bottom would have water and fishes in it. The tub at the top would have plants in it. Plants can either planted into pots or planted directly into the tub at the top. Care should be taken that there’s gravel placed below the sand so that the sand does not seep in through the holes in the pot or the tub, with the excess water flowing out of the tub or the pots and enter the fish tank.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
