Are you keen on ponics and could you construct a carbon dioxide filter, in record time, from a roll of grey duct tape, two lithium-hydroxide canisters, two LCG bags, two hoses, two socks and one bungee cord? Then we challenge you to construct a fully functioning hydroponic, aquaponic, bioponic, airponic or any other ponic system you want, from the collection of parts at our field centre.
You don’t have to be a NASA engineer to accept our challenge and unlike Apollo 13, there’s no risk of three astronauts dying in a space capsule whilst you are busy thinking, but there is one risk to make you think hard and that’s all about whether we can collectively produce enough nourishing food as the global human population expands. If we can’t, millions will die.
Minimal use and re-use of unpolluted water looks to be the top farming solution for the future.
“Wait a minute! What about limiting population growth?”
“That’s not going to appeal to all families.”
“How about changing to sea grown food?”
“That plan would only work if all global industries stopped dumping their pollutants into the ocean – and all polititians would need to revoke all the licenses that allow ocean pollution.”

World of Water returned to do six school workshops at Court of Noke prior to the Spring Greens Fair weekend 2019. As the theme of the Fair was Air, we arranged a big onsite clue hunt with clues ranging from the weight of rain clouds, the watery origins of crude oil and the harvesting of green crude for air travel.
The H20bservatory was full of WaterWatchers at Spring Greens Fair this year as nine schools took part in four workshops (Yoga, Lexicons, Food miles and Recycling) designed to explore the world ahead for ‘The Next Generation’
World of Water was one of the sponsors for this year’s workshops and we designed and created specially themed take-home packs for further study. Grant, our co-founder, volunteered to be ‘Artist-in-Residence’ and produced a series of infographics for the organisers during workshops on Yoga, Lexicons, Food miles and Recycling.
WoW created the first take-back-to-school education packs for Spring Greens Fair School Days which included samples of construction materials through the ages along with drawings and photographs to support further school work on the theme of the Fair – ‘The Idealistic Home’
