Recently, the term “vertical farming” has been introduced and widely circulated. It has been used to describe anything from growing patio plants on a trellis, to a wall of green landscaping, to grand visions of towering skyscrapers that cultivate different levels of plants and animals.
TerraSphere Systems LLC has its own definition. With efficient use of water, energy, and space, this practical, highly controlled vertical farming technology is designed to service people anywhere in the world. TerraSphere facilities are expected to provide much needed organic food to remote locations with harsh growing conditions – and they can do so 365 days of the year. In both rural and urban centers TerraSphere technology can reduce the need to transport food long distances. In producing an extensive variety of organic, nutritionally dense local produce the TerraSphere technology has the potential to contribute to a lower overall carbon footprint.
The team at TerraSphere Systems LLC, (now in full production) has been working for many years to perfect this technology. It is hoped that TerraSphere facilities will bring local jobs and quality nutrition to those regions of the world that are in desperate need.
