Vertical farming is the practice of growing crops using soilless farming techniques such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics in vertically stacked layers. It often incorporates controlled-environment agriculture, which aims to optimise plant growth with nutrients, lighting and pH. Vertical farming is perfect for high density living areas or to save space.

Hydroponics is simply described as growing plants without soil. Hydroponics allows you to control more of the variables including pH levels, lighting and nutrients for optimal plant growth and produce yields. Water is the main method of delivering the nutrients to the plant’s roots, combined with growing media to help support the plant. Hydroponically grown plants dip their roots directly into nutrient-rich solutions, so plants get more of what they need much faster and easier. Hydroponic farming can be used in locations where soil conditions are too poor to support farming, or where space is limited. It can be done anytime and anywhere!
Regenerative Agriculture is a huge topic of discussion, but what does it really mean? When we think agriculture, we often picture large fields of crops, tractors, pesticides and fertilisers. However, the word regenerative bears a hopeful image of flourishing nature, harmoniously uniting all elements of the plant, animal and human worlds together. Thus, bringing us the much-needed regeneration part, the urgency of building back what's been destroyed over the last few centuries
Sowing seeds indoors allows you to use all the environmental controls of a grow-room to manipulate conditions such as light, temperature, and humidity. This gives your seedlings optimal conditions for success and a head start to creating a root network healthy and robust enough to provide them with their best chance of survival when they are transitioned into the outdoors. Sowing seeds indoors offers many benefits. The first is it allows you to start your growing season much
Did you know approximately eighty percent of pollution to the marine environment comes from the land, as a result of water runoff and soil erosion. Runoff carries with it the pollutants, chemical fertilisers, and the soil itself from our farms and ranches. (Average erosion per acre per year on U.S. farmland – 4 tons). Australia is no different. We've adopted these same methods of agriculture. Healthy soil is aggregated (glued together by microbial substances) and covered by
