About the event:

We LOVE innovation, and it lights a fire within us. We are solution seekers and finders, and we like to share and learn. We see and feel the need to build programs for children, including those with special needs. In our own kids, we acknowledge the deep effect that nature, food, play, and love have on their development and awareness of all things good.

Bio Tree

The Bio Tree has a structure like a tree but much higher. Each branch of the tree has a different temperature and condition to grow different types of plants. The tree runs on renewable energy. There is also a drip irrigation system that waters the plants.

Farming tower and drone

This is a tall tower that is constructed in areas where land is minimal. The tower has openings to let natural light in and an elevator to enable movement. The tower has a well that supplies water. There is a funnel on top to collect rainwater. All levels in the tower have beds of plants. There is also a drone feature that takes seeds and drops the seeds.

The food vendor

The food vendor is a vending machine that is located in areas where the residents are economically disadvantaged. The restaurants can search for the closest food vendor through an app and put the good but excess restaurant food in the machine. The app also controls duration that the food sits in the machine to transfer them to compost.
