01 Jan 2019

This is not a bad idea at all.

A simple solution.

Right on, aklemalp and Roman.
As you saw the short clip, the farmer Mr. Haripodo explains the process of creating these floating beds with water hyacinths and his family members show us how to make the mud balls to house the harvest plant seeds. And he tells us that our forefathers did this, worked through this method for (hundreds) of years. This is no new invention. These farmers in southern Bangladesh delta mastered the method and making the harvest go further.

The Aztecs are known to have mastered this method in the lakes of Texcoco and Xaltocan around Teotihuacan and Azcapotzalco -the gardening methods known as the Chinampas.
If you are interested, you can check it out by looking them up and reading.

It's really amazing that different people in the past have the same idea about how things how. Parallelism.

Like the story of pi.

Excellent stuff BK bhai
