Farming is one of the oldest activities on Earth, yet one that changes with the passing of time, profiting on advancing expertise and technological advancements. Hence, one of the Coop Network projects aims to create a greenhouse concept that maximises all the resources available at hand. Coop’s greenhouse will give its members not only the chance to grow their own organic fruits and vegetables, but also the possibility to play an active part in the future of farming in their community.
Nothing available at hand goes to waste. The greenhouse implements a system that collects rainwater and filters by using pH control, to maximise and profit on every resource offered by Mother Earth.
The greenhouse uses solar energy to supply the vents and pumps that are put into practice for the development of its harvest. This aspect diminishes its energy requirements while cutting back costs.
