"Jenna has designed an efficient, sub-irrigated system for growing
energy-packed plants (microgreens) in small, urban spaces. Her aim: to
provide healthy greens to extraordinary people with ordinary incomes.
As an urban agricultural design project, she envisions a way to
grow food in an anthropogenic landscape for all strata of citizens, but
as an art project, she hopes to facilitate conversations about
different values: convenience vs creative effort, regenerables vs
disposables, neighbors vs strangers." (From site Spevack's site.)
