For those of you worried that we are going to run out of farm land, take heart. The Italian Ocean Reef Group have figured out how to take the entire process underwater. They’ve just created the world’s first underwater greenhouses, named Nemo’s Garden, off the coast of Noli, Italy.

Believe it or not, they’ve been able to create the perfect condition for growing beans, strawberries, basil, and lettuce.

It turns out that the constant temperature and high humidity are just what plants love. Also, there’s plenty of Carbon Dioxide, which makes the plants grow even faster.

A big plus is that, with the plants all being under water, they don’t need to use any pesticides to keep the bugs out.

One question that has yet to be answered is: what effect does this have on the surrounding environment?
