Vertical indoor farming solves the problems that traditional farms face increasingly each day. Growing vertically indoors allows our farms to take advantage of increased growing seasons per year and increased square footage resulting in much higher yields compared to traditional farms.Variables such as extreme weather, pests, and transportation costs are controlled resulting in high quality produce and consistent prices. All of this combined allows for communities to have access to healthy fresh produce at a competitive cost.
We are currently using aquaponics to grow our our romaine lettuce and kale. Aquaponics is a food production system that combines traditional aquaculture (fish) and hydroponics (plants in water) creating a symbiotic relationship. In this system, water is fed from the aquaculture system to the hydroponic system where waste and bacteria from the fish is broken down and utilized by the plants as nutrients. The cleansed water is then oxygenated and recirculated back into the aquaculture system. An aquaponic system uses 97% less water than traditional farming methods. We are not married to aquaponics however, our systems are setup to support soil and normal hydroponic farming as well.
