Plan: Sustaining Tomorrow Through Sensibility Today
Growing hydroponic produce using a growing medium reduces input materials such as fertilisers. Once finished, the growing medium is recycled to produce new products. Use of energy curtains reduces the rate of heat loss, in turn, reduces the need for extra resources.
By utilising recyclable products we are doing our part to lessen our carbon footprint on the environment. Also by utilising kraft board for our cartons we do not require bleaches in our corrugated packing.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM), where good bugs are applied to control bad bugs and to help pollinate the crop (i.e. Bumblebees for pollination and ladybugs for pest control), is a more sustainable method of production than the use of herbicides, pesticides and fungicides.
With the use of energy efficient LED and Sensor Lighting and Motion Control Faucets throughout our facilities, and a rooftop solar panel installation we reduce energy consumption and unnecessary loss all the while generating energy that surrounding greenhouses, businesses and homes can utilize.
We minimise fertiliser and water inputs by capturing the excess in holding tanks, sterilising it and reusing it. This creates a closed loop system which reduces the use of resources which calculates to 0% water/fertiliser waste while using up to 95% less water than traditional farming methods.
