Vertical Farming Structural Design

03/05/2016 12:31 PM

I have this really brilliant idea...I think? Anyone with an aptitude for structural design wanna help change vertical farming? I have no engineering degree and I suck at math ... I need someone with balling spatial skills to help with a design, or more like a hybridization of the two best commercial designs out there now

Not quite sure what you mean... I mean I intend for it to be commercial, but I suppose a smaller version of the design could be for the consumer to grow their own?

Yes, my idea actually involves this rotating A-frame and making it 4x more productive with a simple modification ...potentially
