URBAN CULTIVATION INTERNATIONAL
SOUTH AFRICA’S COMPLETE INDOOR FARMING SOLUTION
We develop innovative products and systems that grow crops at incredible rates in incredible spaces. Urban Cultivation International™ creates productive indoor farms that harvest healthy plants without the distress of ‘old school’ farming, using automated hydroponic farming systems.
Demand for food, especially fresh, healthy plant-based food, has been on a steady rise globally. Indoor farming is one of the many ways we could begin to meet this demand. It provides a unique opportunity to grow crops on any piece of land, therefore increasing food production and minimising the distance our food travels.
Urban Cultivation International™ creates productive indoor farms that harvest healthy plants without the distress of ‘old school’ farming, using automated hydroponic farming systems. We develop innovative products and systems that grow crops at incredible rates in incredible spaces.
Using hydroponic technology, anyone can grow harvests that are more affordable and better for the environment. Farmers can benefit from the controlled, automated, affordable, and sustainable methods of growing their crops with minimal monitoring and without the waste of resources like water, land and various fertilisers.
Luckily, you don’t need to be a farmer (or even live near a farm) in order to reap the benefits of indoor farming and its systems or products. If you have some empty space in your home, you could start growing your own healthy plants indoors today. For the home farmers, Urban Cultivation International™ ’s products and systems also ensure that growers know exactly where their food comes from and how it was grown. There is no need to worry about deceptive food labelling ever again.
THE FUTURE OF FARMING
We make it possible for you, the farmer, to control the exact amount of light, nutrients, and moisture that your crops receive. Our products and systems grow without sun or soil in a fully-controlled indoor space of your choice.
You don’t have to be a slave to mother nature anymore. Our systems are optimised to produce fast harvest cycles, predictable results, greater food safety, and less environmental impact through automated systems that need minimal maintenance.
Any space, of any size, could be used for growing crops using our products and our systems. The indoor farmer does not need large plots of land or expensive resources. Our farms can be created in an area as small as a garage and can be used by a single farmer. They can also produce much more crops in a small area than can be produced in outdoor, soil-based farms.
When using our systems, there is no fear of weeds, insects, or pests so there is no need for crop protection agents that are dangerous for the environment. Our systems produce healthy, clean plants with no sand and dirt, so they don’t need to be washed thus water is saved. We also have no need for oil molecules or diesel in our growth process, in order to reduce our global green footprint.
Our dream is for our systems to be used to help strengthen food supplies and provide fresh produce to communities all over South Africa.
