I am on the board for a non-profit marine conservation organization.
One of the new ideas we are tossing around is constructing a large garden ontop a bardge in the ocean. We would like to potentially grow enough food to donate to local soup kitchens/homeless shelters, as well as sell at our local farmers market. I haven't been able to find much info on Veggies that grow well in these conditions- nor about being able to water them using the ocean water. Any further info, or ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
We would love to use this as a tool to teach school age children to grow their own veggies in a sustainable manner. So utilizing all that mother nature provides is our goal. (wind turbines, ocean water, sea weed) Even if there would be a way to "container fish garden" that would be awesome...
So just thought I would throw the topic out there and see if anyone has any ideas or info. :)
