Harvesting fresh produce Bok Choy at Sky Greens
Sky Greens is a pioneering adventure in vertyical farming, one of the first of its kind, founded by Daniel Chea.
As written in their website:
World’s first low carbon hydraulic water-driven, tropical vegetable urban vertical farm, using green urban solutions to achieve enhanced green sustainable production of safe, fresh and delicious vegetables, using minimal land, water and energy resource
Locally grown vegetables in Singapore currently constitute only 7% of local consumption. Demand for local vegetables exceeds supply. Singaporeans trust the quality, freshness and safety of local vegetables, grown using good agricultural practice under the supervision of the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore.
The A-Go-Gro vertical systems which are 9m in height (3 storeys), housed in protected-outdoor green houses, allow tropical leafy vegetables to be grown all year round at significantly higher yields (than traditional growing methods) that are safe, of high quality, fresh and delicious.
Green urban technologies are used on the farm, which is easy and environmentally friendly to operate and maintain. Patented low carbon hydraulic water-driven green technology. Soil-mix, fertilizers and water are controlled. Modular A-frame structures for easy installation & maintenance. Outdoor green houses, which use abundant sunlight in the tropics throughout the year. Green technology is used to achieve the 3R ( reduce, reuse and recycle)
