When the McClung family moved into their new home in Mesa they were told by the city they had two options with their swimming pool: Dig it out and fill in the hole or pay a lot of money to have it repaired. They designed a third option like nobody had ever seen before. They enclosed the pool with a greenhouse and created a self contained sustaining ecosystem complete with chickens, catfish, talapia, vegetable garden and fruits, recycled water purification and a solar electric panel to provide electricity for fan and pump.
If you are interested in any aspect of growing some of what you eat these guys are really, really clever at it. Don't miss out.
