Urbanisation, human population growth and climate change all contribute towards the need of more efficient farming methods for fresh and clean food. One of the solutions is vertical farming where plants are grown in layers using specially designed artificial lights.
Urban farming is by no means a new phenomenon but it is taking new shapes and coming back to towns stronger than ever. Effective farming methods like automated vertical farming is literally going to take fresh food supply into new heights. Especially crowded cities with little space and long transportation distanced or badly poluted areas are in great demand of clean healthy daily food.
Our modern society is facing many poverty related social, nourishment and health related issues as well as economical challenges that must be solved in order to maintain our wellbeing and democratic life style.
Exsilio Oy is currently looking for co-creation partners for Finland’s most innovative urban farming project. EkoFARMER is a resource-efficient farming chamber for small-scale urban farming. It combines high-tech solutions with the easiness and safety of locally produced healthy and clean ecological food. Join us to make a difference.
