Growing #vegetables underwater? Is that possible?

Father and son grow vegetables at eight meters deep in the sea

Off the coast of Noli in Italy a father and son started an underwater farm. At eight meters depth they grow vegetables and fruit in the Mediterranean.

Nemo's Garden started in 2013 as an experiment by Sergio and Luca Gamberini. The first project was washed away by a storm. Then a more permanent structure was put down and it is still there.
Inside the biosphere, plants, equipment
Nemo's Garden consists of five biospheres that are connected with cables to a 'tree of life'. Each biosphere is connected to a control tower on land, which accurately monitors the entire process, regulates the temperature and provides power.

Because the crops suffered from the cold weather, father and son decided to grow their products under water. This allowed them to use the relatively uniform temperature of the seawater, which makes plants grow better. The domes work like a greenhouse, but then underwater.

Being involved in sustainability activities has changed my view on this subject a lot. Climate change and pollution are borderless and thus solutions and information has to be shared globally. Rich, 'developed' countries have to start supporting countries that don't have the means and knowledge to improve their situation. Sustainability movement is as strong as its weakest link - whatsorb.com is a helpful platform to speed up the X-Change of Global Sustainability.
