Low Technology

Besides heating and cooling, there are many ways that we use technology at Ligaya Garden. I like to fiddle and experiment with things and will share links to various experiments that have been played with here.

I’m always trying new things and will compile them on this page as I succeed with them so keep coming back to check it out. It’s all basic stuff, so give it a go!
