3D print your own garden grow box: Texas inventor releases 3D parts and instructions for self-watering grow systems


3D printing

(Natural News) (Press release) Texas inventor and science lab director Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") has publicly launched 3D printable parts and instructions for making your own self-watering float valve, the key component in non-electric hydroponic grow systems.

The automatic float valve requires eight parts in total: Four can be 3D printed using files that are freely available for downloading at www.FoodRising.org

The other four parts can be easily found almost anywhere:

* A No. 2 pencil eraser
* A paper clip
* A discarded vitamin bottle
* A garden hose rubber washer

Using these parts, users can assemble their own automatic water level float valves which make "non-circulating hydroponics" grow boxes work. Step-by-step instructions and 3D parts are posted now at this FoodRising.org page.

Adams has posted several online videos at www.FoodRising.org showing the abundant lettuce, herbs, beans and strawberries he has grown using this 3D printed float valve. He says the system allows you to grow "better-than-organic lettuce, herbs and garden greens for pennies on the dollar."

He's also organized the donation of 250 complete grow box systems to schools across America. Funding has already been secured for all 250 grow systems, and they ship out the first week of March, putting 3D printed grow systems into the hands of schoolchildren across America.

"We want to show children not only the joy of growing their own nutritious food, but also teach them about the rise of the next industrial revolution: 3D printing and additive manufacturing." Adams explains.

Adams is the executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org) that launched the project and organized the donations. He says he has plans to release four more "revolutionary inventions" in 2015 that are 3D printable, practical devices which solve difficult problems. His next 3D printable invention, he says, is "a device that can remove arsenic from contaminated well water."

Adams runs an ICP-MS lab with a mass spec instrument and has already invented a patent-pending nutritional supplement that can remove radioactive isotopes from the digestive tract.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
