Farmonize--Urban Farming

Farmonize--城市农耕

项目介绍

Beans are a popular food crop that has been the staple of many diets around the world. In their dry form, beans can be stored for long periods of time without spoiling and have decent nutritional content. However, inside these seeds lie even greater potential to nourish and sustain life.

豆类是一种受欢迎的粮食作物,它已经成为世界上许多饮食的主要食物。豆类以干燥的形式存在可以被存储很长一段时间不被损坏并且有相当好的营养含量。无论以何种形式,这些种子内部甚至存在着更大的潜能来滋养和维持生命。

Sprouting unlocks the full potential of beans by improving the availability of vitamins and amino acids, while also increasing protein content. This makes sprouting an excellent way to improve the diets of both people and livestock.

通过提高维生素和氨基酸的可用性,萌发可以开启豆类的充分潜能,同时也提高蛋白质的含量。这使得萌发成为一种极好的方式来提高人和牲畜的日常饮食。

Sprouting can be done at home by everybody, and dried beans are cheap to buy, but there are several problems with the home sprouting process:

· It requires substantial maintenance, twice a day to rinse and drain; sprouting multiple varieties of beans requires an enormous amount of maintenance

· Improperly maintained sprouts can begin to grow mold

· There is a risk of bacterial contamination

任何人在家里都可以完成萌发,并且干豆买起来很便宜,但是在家萌发的过程存在几个问题:

· 它需要大量的营养,冲洗和排水一天两次;萌发多种多样的豆子需要大量的保

· 被不恰当保养的新芽会开始发霉

· 有细菌性污染的风险

To address this problem, Farmonize has developed the Sterile Multi Sprout System (SAMSS), an electronic system that can sprout multiple trays of multiple varieties with minimal startup maintenance and minimum contamination risk.

为处理这些问题,Farmonize 已经发明了无菌的多种萌发体系(SAMSS),一个最小启动维护和最低限度的污染风险就能够萌发大量格子中的多个品种的电子体系。

It only requires the user to fill up the system with beans and water every 1-2 weeks, and the system automatically rinses, drains, and disinfects the sprouts. When the sprouts are ready, a message is sent to the user and the sprouts can be moved to the refrigerator for cold storage.

它仅要求使用者用豆子和水充满这个体系每1-2周,这个系统就会自动冲洗,排水和消毒这些新芽。当这些新芽准备好,一条消息就会被发给使用者,然后这些新芽就能够被移置在冰箱冷藏。

For Farmonize, we are always looking for effective ways of replacing unsustainable supplies and processes with more sustainable and efficient alternatives. One of these unsustainable processes is the use of fish meal to improve the protein content of poultry feed. Fish meal is very high in protein, but puts great strain on the environment by harvesting an enormous amount of fish from the ocean. If the current trends of consumption continue, the oceans will be facing a serious shortage of fish.

就Farmonize而言,我们坚持寻求一种更有效的途径,从而用可持续又高效的方式取代原有的供应与流程。这些不可持续的流程之一就是用鱼粉来提高家禽饲料的蛋白质成分。虽然鱼粉是高蛋白的,但是从海洋中捕获大量的鱼类会对环境会产生严重的影响。如果现有的消费趋势持续不变的话,海洋即将面临鱼类数量不足的威胁。

Farmonize uses sprouting to turn low protein content beans into highly nutritious, vegetarian feed for chickens and turkeys, while minimizing the amount of extra labor required to sprout large amounts of feed.

Farmonize用发芽的方式使低蛋白的豆类转化成高营养的素饲料,用来喂养小鸡与火鸡。同时,降低额外的所需劳动力,来增加发芽量,提高产量。
