BBC reports that Syrian refugees living in Jordan camp Zaatari are hard at work with University of Sheffield scientists & the UN Refugee Agency to create a method to grow healthy, fresh foods with just 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.

Mattress Mike is a believer that people are good natured & everyone deserves comfort, his belief is that no one should buy a mattress, because it’s simply more expensive!
