In this week’s episode, we discuss how AquaPro‘s Groasis is working to improve reforestation efforts in arid climates by utilizing nature’s simple and most effective examples. The Groasis uses incubation to deliver water over a time-period in tune with a seedling’s demand for water.  Any precipitation from rainfall or evening condensation is collected from the fan-shaped roof of the device and stored in evaporation-proof containers.
