Want a quick afternoon project thatas both fun and productive? This little indoor garden utilizes stuff “youre supposed to” already have lying around, and itas a fantastic, green way to make sure you always have fresh herbs or salad greens around for cooking. Or you can do what I did, and simply use it to grow ornamental ivy for a classy( and somewhat nerdy) dialogue starter.

And if youare the kind of person who gets nervous about keeping a thirsty plant alive, donat fret. This is aquaponics, and itas about as close as you can get to a self-sufficient garden for less than ten bucks. Aquaponics is like Hydroponics, but with a symbiotic twist! Itas basically a closed loop-the-loop between a small fish tank and a living plant. That means this project is also a perfect way to teach your kids about ecosystemsawithout the mosquitoes!

One more quick note about such projects before we get started: My supplies were basically what I had lying around the house or what I picked up at a thrift store( for example, the water pump came from a$ 3 fountain at Goodwill ). Nearly everything can be switched out with something else, so get creative! Isnat that what makes it fun?
