Smart Greenhouses Turn Rooftops Into Gardens
CITYBLOOMS modular computer automated greenhouses bring sustainable commercial agricultural technology to urban farming
The world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050 and food producers will need to generate 70 percent more food to feed the masses. Some food producers are developing alternatives to traditional farming, using technology to grow safe clean food in under utilized spaces.
SEALEAF, is a modular hydroponic floating agricultural system for urban coastal environments that challenges the use of land and the culture of global food importation by returning food production to the center of its consumption. Also, the Daiwa House Group has created Agri-Cube a portable hydroponic vegetable grower that produces up to 10,000 veggies a year. Now, California based CITYBLOOMS has created a modular, computer automated, hydroponic greenhouse designed for urban rooftops and other under utilized spaces. According to CITYBLOOMS CEO Nick Halmos, “The modularity gives us the ability to scale very easily, so we can size farming installations appropriately to consumption demands, patterns and profiles of the community.” Check out the video below.
