Save for the planet - community garden


It is becoming evident that we will see sea levels rise across many of Australia’s nearest neighbours. It can be assumed that we will see two things: 1, contest for nutrition (food) as a result of scarcity in affected regions & 2, Mass migration from the Oceania & South East Asia & Pacific regions to Australia. Whether we are prepared for this influx of people and ready to support them both where they are and when they arrive here depends on what we do next.

a start
Concept sketch by Jadon Dutra.

It has never been clearer that our transport, agriculture and waste management industries are in need of reform and new innovative approaches to solving the question of how to feed people with consideration to environmental impact is required.

We envision a solution that can provide answers to all these questions and more, let's take a little journey through the concept of the Save for the planet community garden.

Currently available technologies in automated production, cybernation, recycling, vertical farming, renewable power and storage along with drones and digital point of sale systems(such as uber eats) make it possible for us to piece together products that currently exist into one central structure that when built from readily available materials in the local area can function as a food production and processing centre providing the local community with raw produce and prepared meals whilst being zero waste & energy positive.

These structures can also house bio-reactors helping us to sequester as much carbon from the air as possible.

Once an initial concept of this project is completed we will be able to review the structure and refine it for release in other parts of Australia and the world, the intention is to make each section modular to allow scalability inline with available space and resources. 

The end state:

  • We will provide a solution that provides adequate nutrition to a population on a set ratio of 1:10000 or similar. The structure will be able to generate its own power and store it. 
  • The structure will be able to with no human input grow produce and determine the correct produce to grow to match demand in the area.
  • The structure contains automated food processing & delivery capabilities. 
  • The structure produces oxygen and noticeably reduces Co2 in the area. 
  • The structure has recycling and composting capabilities. 
  • The structure determines if produce is being used for personal or commercial use, if personal no one should ever pay for food, if commercial business should be provided the materials and expect to pay a fair and reasonable price.


Let's get away from concept and talk about reality, we are really going to begin building the foundations for this device in an urban area by March 8th 2020. To achieve this we will be rolling out a working model for a self contained garden bed & plastic bottle recycler. Our research team is currently bringing this to reality, please see the concept art below and let us know if you have any ideas on how to help make this a reality.
