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. By creating a greenhouse concept that maximises all the resources available at hand, the Coop Network gives 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.
Developing a Greenhouse concept to grow vegetables using organic, rich substrate and natural rainwater filtered for PH control.

Using solar energy for pumps and vents
Sell excess green power directly to the grid
Once the concept is confirmed as viable, it can be dynamically reproduced, both on the Co-op’s land and by members on their own.
