With the opening of a new grow room, Living Greens Farm, a vertical, indoor aeroponic farm that provides year-round fresh salads, microgreens and herbs, brings its farming operation to 60,000 square feet.
Living Greens Farm's patented vertical plane design allows one acre to produce the equivalent of hundreds of conventional, outdoor acres. A high-tech computer system manages the plants' growing conditions for variables such as light, temperature, humidity and CO2 to grow year-round produce.
“Our patented growing technology has changed the game of aeroponics, within one year our new farm will save 24 million gallons of water and several hundred thousand miles of shipping – saving over 35,000 gallons of diesel and nearly a million pounds of CO2 emissions," says Dana Anderson, chairman and CEO of Living Greens Farm, according to a press release. “With our third grow room, Living Greens Farm will nearly triple its capacity, move into major market segments and position the company for even stronger growth in 2019. The expansion places Living Greens as the world’s largest vertical plane aeroponic farm in the world.”
