Welcome to OPERATION: L.A.N.D. We are part of the MPX program from Mid-Pacific Institute and we are trying to find a way to grow plants in the most efficient way of hydroponics. Our project is based on a double tower system instead of the traditional pipe system. So far we have managed to help make the double tower systems throughout the past year when our school year started. This website is to inform visitors on the progress that OPERATION L.A.N.D has gone through on taking care of plants with a weekly blog every week. We are doing an attempt on trying to teach of why a hydroponic system would be better than conventional farming, which is used everyday.
So what is the purpose of doing this project? The significance of this project is to show a beneficial way of farming than effectively help your land and sustainability. The project is purposefully trying to help others learn how efficient farming can make use of little space to plant healthier plants rather than traditional farming which uses up more land. Farming throughout the years has changed and new ways such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and much more have revolutionized farming as it is today. What is sustainability? Sustainability is about being productive without harming others or nature in it. While you may think about pollution while we talk about this, sometimes unsustainable ways can actually contribute to pollution and poisoning. Which is where the hydroponic systems and other ways come in. We use re-usable resources, re-use things, recycle, do productive activities with plants that doesn't harm the environment. What we plan to do is to create a more sustainable environment around the world, especially our school. Ranging from making and drawing out creative info graphics to ranging to building a simple design of a hydroponic system that can host plants that can be grown and eaten if taken care and handled properly. We specialize mostly in our teamwork and our efficient way of working with each other, in order to achieve success and to budge towards our goals. As a team consisted of four people who tend to communicate with each other with vibrant and almost-seemingly impossible ideas. At the moment this year, 2014, is where they are setting up the hydroponic system that'll hold up plants for their cooking recipe that is going to be edited and prepared on. Our vegetables that we grow will be our ingredients for the meal that we'll be cooking for judges in a competition that will be hosted in 2015. The plants are grown without using pesticides that would harm the environment.
