Growing vegetables in the desert with seawater

Interesting story on a groundbreaking greenhouse that uses seawater and mirrors to grow tomatoes, 300 kilometres north of Adelaide.

Re: Growing vegetables in the desert with seawater

Love this! Really wish Australia could become a leader in renewable energy, particularly solar. We have so much sunshine in so much of the country. There seems huge potential being wasted.
