We are using hydroponics to provide sustainable access to fresh food, using 90% less water than traditional agriculture.

Project Description


A brief project description of our food waste/loss project by addressing the following questions: 

Insights
Traditional agriculture practices take up 70% of all surface water resources, and growing one pound of produce in soil can take up to 100L of water. This is a significant use of a valuable resource, and in regions where access to clean water is already a challenge, agriculture becomes even harder. Our team used hydroponic technology to develop a growing system that can fit in the corner of your home, and use 90% less water than traditional agriculture, while growing the produce twice as fast.
Action
We currently have over 400 systems operating across Canada, with plans to expand internationally. We are constantly working with expert botanists and engineers to further refine our system. We are also working to develop a in-system filter, so that communities with poor quality water can still use our system, and have access to fresh and healthy food. We are also implementing our systems in classrooms, where we are educating students on the issues of sustainable access to water and food security.
Impact
We are empowering individuals to take control of their food supply, with a system that can grow fresh food anywhere, without using very much energy or water. In the near future, our systems will also be able to act as a filter, so fresh food will be accessible to anyone, regardless of water quality. Our goal is to empower individuals around the world to feed themselves and their communities, while using their resources, like water, sustainably.
