Ed Horton, President and CEO of Urban Produce LLC, announced today that Urban Produce will be opening its first, patented, High Density Vertical Growing System, where they will begin growing USDA organic leafy greens. Urban Produce will be growing all types of live and cut produce, from 28 varieties of microgreens, a variety of different basil, bok choy, wheatgrass, strawberries, mint and herbs to major retailers, food services and culinary chiefs.

Growing Unit

The Urban Produce High Density Vertical Growing System has been developed as a sustainable alternative to traditional agriculture, utilizing advanced hydroponic technologies in a controlled environment. The technology used is patented, taking the best of hydroponics and increasing the yield by stacking produce vertically, in a closed, automated environment.

“Our patented growing technology allows us to grow the equivalent of 16 acres of produce on just a 1/8 acre footprint, all while reducing water usage by 90% as compared to traditional row farming. Imagine the tremendous short-term benefit to locally grown, organic produce using less water while reducing our carbon footprint and bringing jobs to local communities. Now, imagine that 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year...the long-term benefits are absolutely incredible. We are very excited with the opportunities that lay ahead of Urban Produce as we look to expand into urban cities all over the U.S., and Canada,” said Ed Horton President & CEO.
