Artificial gardens that simulate the natural ecosystem

21 Aug

I was walking down a pathway when I noticed Ibis Bird feeding on garbage. And I had a thought if it is possible to create an artificial wetland stocked with all the animals that are native to that ecosystem to serve as a food source for the Ibis. Maybe even a self-sustaining ecosystem that not only serves as a place where the Ibis bird eats its fill but also as a place which beautifies the often ugly urban environments I am in.

Although hopefully mankind will awaken from its spiritual melaise that results in such ugly urban environments and infrastructure and rediscover what beauty is about.

    I’ve long been a fan of ‘vertical-build’, so instead of spreading out, spreading ‘up’. Perhaps gardens could be worked to function in this manner, with the correct planning.

      Elaborate.

        So, instead of crops grown primarily on a horizontal plane (i.e – fields), integrating them into tall buildings, multi-leveled gardens that reach to the sky.
