Syrian refugees at Zaatari camp in Jordan and scientists from the College of Sheffield are working collectively to create a option to develop wholesome, recent meals with nothing however water and outdated mattress foam.
These ‘recycled gardens’ use the mattresses instead of the soil, which solves two issues in a single: It reuses the mountain of plastic mattresses which have piled up within the camp and it permits everybody to develop recent meals in a crowded, desert atmosphere.
Victoria Gill has been to the camp in Jordan to see the way it’s working.
