Containers are UV-protected, leak-proof and foldable. The frame has a CKD design that can be easily assembled and dissembled.
Rooftop Organic Farming will become more and more popular in times to come because of the following reasons:
- Grow Fresh organic Vegetables with very little water,
- Reduce electricity consumption, by developing a natural green cover on your roof,
- Harvest rainwater
- Subsequently, generate CARBON CREDITS.
1. Energy Conservation
The use of a green roof compared to conventional roofing surfaces significantly impacts the energy balance within a building. Studies have shown that green roofs have the potential to reduce a building’s energy use by as much as 30%.
2. Stormwater Management
A green roof system absorbs rainwater and helps to prevent sewer system back-ups and contaminated stormwater overflow events. Green roofs can help prevent catastrophic environmental events.
3. Fossil Fuel Reduction
A rooftop farm grows Hyper-Local food. Growing Low Food Mile organic produce substantially reduces the fossil fuel consumption associated with the traditional food transportation system.
4. Global Warming
Green roofs sequester carbon from the atmosphere, lower the levels of carbon dioxide in the air, eliminate the build-up of greenhouse gases, and keep city temperatures cooler by effectively reducing the “Urban Heat Island Effect”.
By replacing inorganic, lifeless roofs with living and thriving green spaces, green roofs support increased biodiversity in urban environments—offering a habitat for a multitude of organisms—from birds to butterflies to countless other beneficial insects.
6. Local Food Economy
Rooftop farms generate revenue for local farmers and businesses. Rooftop Agriculture is an emerging green technology that creates jobs and improves food self-sufficiency by providing organic and Hyper-Local food.
It produces an organic super food at its best. Special soil that has been infused with minerals, trace elements, omegas, proteins and microorganisms, every bite is packed with enzymes, antioxidants, nutrients, and minerals.
A rooftop farm is a beacon of sustainability in the community which creates a tangible connection between the farmer and the consumer. Rooftop farms have the power to bring an urban community closer together.
9. Environmental Stewardship
Organic rooftop farming protects our soil and water from toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other dangerous chemicals typically used in conventional farming. Rooftop farms are a pro-active measure in building a sustainable future for our planet.
10. Aesthetics and Beauty
Stark urban skylines can be rejuvenated with green roofs. Supplanting inorganic, lifeless roofs with vibrant greenery, green roofs beautify cityscapes and balance an otherwise bleak horizon of concrete and tar.
