Please note: This lecture has an early start time of 4:00 p.m.
Sergio Gamberini, one of the owners of SCUBA gear company Ocean Reef Group, has developed Nemo’s Garden, a method for growing plants underwater in a biosphere. This could potentially introduce new areas for sustainable agricultural cultivation using minimal energy and protecting crops from pests and harsh weather. The company currently operates five biospheres growing plants like basil and arugula off the coast of Savona, Italy. Gamberini will explain the science behind Nemo’s Garden and what it could mean for the future of sustainable agriculture.
