RAINFARM is a balcony rain collection and planter system designed to make urban farming both easy and beautiful, transforming underutilised balconies into productive gardens. Self-sustaining and low-maintenance, Rainfarm is powered by two simple elements: rain and sun.
Rainwater is collected in a 20L tank through two adjustable spouts attached to a balcony railing, conserving water during dry periods. A submersible, solar-powered connected to a mobile app database waters the planters based on species, requiring minimal manual work except for setup and planting. The Rainfarm app monitors water level and plant maturity. alerting the user to low water levels and harvest time.
