Floating Farms Grow Crops Along City Coastlines [Video]
Hydroponic produce module uses coastal waterways to grow food in urban environments.
Population growth, especially in already large and heavily populated urban areas, is creating an immense strain on infrastructure and resource availability – chiefly land and food. While food can be, and is, transported into urban environments from other parts of the globe, this solution only increases the carbon footprint of food production and a reliance on fluctuating commodities. But with land coming at a premium, where are you supposed to grow more food?
On the water of course.
Sealeaf is a hydroponic farming system that can float on coastal waterways to grow crops that usually require space on land. The modular and scalable system is comprised of a hydroponic growth chamber and walkway pontoons, enabling coastal megacities to grow food without taking up valuable land.
