Rotating / Carousel Gardens..
These types of gardens essentially take a ‘vertical garden’ and expand upon it by providing a centralized lighting system and water supply.
Rather than a number of pots/grow beds that are staggered at different levels, a rotating garden or carousel is a system that allows for rows of plants to be anchored and form a circular tube with the plants in the interior facing a artificial light source. Water and nutrients are pumped into each planter automatically in a closed loop. This follows more of a hydroponics setup, so nutrients need to be added periodically to keep the plants happy.
There are a number of ready made systems on the market both for consumer and commercial setups.
The system below is geared more toward the latter of the two..
