10,000 mattresses about 80,000 people that had this is essentially a city that spring up in a very short.

You can make it with an environment, can learn from this project about taking value from things that can be reused and recycled.

I’M making out streamers out very limited space and really limited resources. Urban environments face a changing climate and there’s limited resources in the future. If that’s a real estate, dr.

Syrian refugees at Zaatari camp in Jordan and scientists from the University of Sheffield are working together to create a way to grow healthy, fresh food with nothing but water and old mattress foam.

These ‘recycled gardens’ use the mattresses in place of the soil, which solves two problems in one: It reuses the mountain of plastic mattresses that have piled up in the camp and it allows everyone to grow fresh food in a crowded, desert environment.

Victoria Gill has been to the camp in Jordan to see how it’s working.
