PlantLab’s vision is that our growing population will have access to affordable, safe and nutritious food via urban farming. “The farmers of the future will be in the basements, not the fields,” predicts PlantLab’s Gertjan Meeuws. “We are growing the best vegetables and tomatoes and herbs in the basements. It will bring food production back to where we live [the cities], creating thousands of jobs.”
High tech “plant paradise” units provide ideal growing conditions via red and far red LED lighting and use only 10 percent of the water a traditional farm requires.
