What is vertical gardening?
Once limited to the rocket scientists over at NASA, vertical growing is a technique that stacks plants vertically, on top of each other, to maximise space. Due to advancements in lighting technology, urban farmers have adopted vertical farming techniques in order to grow more in climate-controlled environments, such as within houses and offices; therefore, growing produce all year round in any climate.
Benefits of growing with aTree
aTree uses vertical space to grow plants in any environment, maximising plant production upwards.
When growing locally, crops are picked at their peak of ripeness versus being harvested early in order to be shipped and distributed.
Plants receive all necessary nutrients to be healthier with shorter growth cycles.
aTree uses 95% less water than traditional field farming; the water is instead delivered efficiently, and then recycled.
Broken food system
30% of the world’s food is wasted due to transportation, ‘ugly’ crops, or simply uneaten.
