Imagine diving into the Italian Riviera and coming back with a bounty of biospheres basil, tomatoes, herbs and other plants! It's all a part of a science experiment known as Nemo's Garden.

“While growing plants underwater might seem strange, it turns out there are a lot of advantages—protection from pests and extreme weather, a regulated temperature and access to fresh water as seawater evaporates and re-condenses. Co-creator of the project Luca Gamberini hopes that one day Nemo's Garden will revolutionize the future of farming and inspire others to grow crops in places they never thought possible.” Great Big Story
