'Bright Agrotech' designed an urban farming system that can be installed on any unused wall space. Although living walls are found in many cities, these installations are usually intended for decorative purposes. Aside from adding a touch of greenery to an urban area, this living wall is also used to grow food.
Bright Agrotech is a Wyoming-based company that designs lightweight hydroponic systems. These urban gardens can be attached to any unused wall space, meaning they provide a simple way to maximize space in dense urban areas. The walls are easy to set up and can even be used indoors. The efficient and self-watering design allows consumers to harvest vegetables every five to six weeks. As CEO of Bright Agrotech Nate Storey explains, "What we're really focused on is decentralizing and democratizing agriculture."
The urban farming system ultimately provides a simple way to get produce from the grower to the consumer in dense urban environments.
