We want to build a rooftop farm in the heart of Kensington Market, and the Modular Farms Co. have created a design for us.
Their controlled-environment indoor farms use energy efficient LED grow lights and 95% less water than field grown produce. The Kensington Market design will include: - 5000 sq ft of indoor growing space capable of producing more food than 12.5 acres of conventionally farmed produce, year round. - 800 sq ft of greenhouse space allowing for the production of larger fruiting cultivars.
We will be bringing the food-miles of our greens down from the national average of 4000 km to about 100 ft! This means a massive reduction in carbon footprint and guarantees the freshest, healthiest produce possible.
This project will be a flagship for global Urban Agriculture and we are so excited!
