Hydroponics

Hydroponic growing is a method of controlled environmental agriculture that allows for each aspect of growing to be optimized. Instead of soil, plants grow in rockwool cubes that float in a nutrient-rich reservoir, which delivers water and nutrients directly to the plants' roots. Full-spectrum LED lights maximize growth and flavour of our greens. Our vertical farm utilizes an active, deep water culture, closed-loop system. 

Learn more about the benefits of hydroponic growing, our unit in particular, and plans for our products.

A Sustainable, Year Round Solution for Fresh Produce

Research on vertical and hydroponic farming is expanding and continuously demonstrates the benefits of these systems. With climate change affecting the reliability of growing seasons in our region, agriculture that is grown indoors, in a controlled environment, is a crucial piece to making our communities more resilient and self-sufficient, all year round.

Minimal Transport

Growing in an urban setting lowers carbon emissions because food needs to travel less miles before reaching your table! Plus, we deliver in an electric vehicle.

Less Resources

Hydroponic systems use less water because it gets re-cycled through the system, and less land because we stack rows on top of one another.

Fresher, Longer

Produce can be harvested and delivered in the very same day, which extends the shelf life by weeks!

No Pesticides

Since there is so much control over the growing system, there is not need for pesticides. We use biological fungicides to prevent some diseases, which are completely natural.
