At Maker Faire Bay Area 2011, Aaron Wolf Baum shows a tank of spirulina he grows from home. A bacterial superfood, spirulina can be grown in alkaline conditions that prevent contamination from harmful bacteria, and then can be filtered and eaten as an ingredient in such foods as guacamole, soups, or smoothies.
