Food Rising plant nutrient and assembly guides posted: new 3D-printable parts just posted, too

Food Rising

(NaturalNews) We've got a flurry of new items to share with you on the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Boxes. Shipments and donations are going out right now, but there was a slightly delay on all the plant foods other than lettuce, so those shipments will go out as soon as we receive the bulk plant foods (scheduled to be received tomorrow or Wed.).

First, we've posted two new guides:

Super Simple Plant Nutrient Instructions teach you how to mix plant nutrients with water to achieve the proper nutrient density for your plants. You'll discover an easy pH guide, instructions for altering pH if needed, and simple guidelines for nutrient ratios.

Mini-Farm Grow Box Assembly Instructions show you how to assemble your new grow box. These instructions are also very useful if you're building your own system from scratch.

Don't miss the DIY videos at the Food Rising video page.

New 3D-printable parts posted!

We've just posted a Float Valve Retention Nut with an expanded inner thread diameter.

This was needed because 3D printers are far from exact, and some printers were printing the Retention Nuts a little too narrow on the threads, causing threading problems when people tried to attach them to the receivers. This new Retention Nut has the negative thread space expanded by an additional 0.4mm in diameter, making it a "looser fit" nut that attaches more easily.

This design also features a slightly expanded negative space cylinder covering the bottom-most threads, allowing the nut to be more easily "started" when threading onto the Receiver.

The recommended filament for printing this part is T-glase filament which you can find at SupplySource.com (in both 1.75 and 2.85mm diameters).

We've also posted an easy-to-print pair of Float Valve Receivers.

This is a really cool solution to the problem of the receiver foot tending to curl up and off the print bed surface. Because the receiver foot could not itself be enlarged (it has to fit between the two "feet" of the Float Valve Adapter), I created a mirror image of the receiver with a tear-away filament segment between the two objects. Printing two of them connected in this way allows them to more easily adhere to the print bed, while simultaneously allowing you to easily separate them after printing.

Technically, the two objects are not quite a mirror image, by the way. Otherwise, the threads would be backwards on one of them. (I realized this with an OOPS moment...)

Got suggestions for our 3D printed objects?

I'll be adding more variations and 3D-printable objects to the library at FoodRising.org. If you have suggestions of things you think we should engineer and post, simply email [email protected]

Thank you for your feedback, and know that we are working hard to keep posting more improvements, user guides, 3D objects and more. Thank you for your patience as we work 'round the clock to share all these amazing innovations with the world!

Pre-built Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Boxes are now available at www.SupplySource.com

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.
