Birmingham, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/24/2017 -- The rooftop of one of Israel's oldest malls is now home to "Green in the City", a rooftop farm scheme in which it produces 10,000 heads of leafy vegetables each month, all year round, using hydroponic growing methods. This is a thriving example of urban agriculture, and just one of the many examples of communities coming together to produce and source locals with the freshest, most nutritional produce.
The rooftop hydroponics farm is home to 17 different vegetable types, over 750 square meters of growing space, and vegetables are grown using a deep water culture system. Thanks to the soil-less growing method in which they use plants are able to grow twice as fast, with less spoilage, water usage and land, compared to tradition growing method and also food miles are reduced, as the vegetables that the community need are no longer having to be shipped from across the globe.
A spokesperson from one of the UK's leading suppliers of hydroponics equipment, Grow World, was incredibly keen to comment saying, "We think that it is incredibly cool that they are now growing vegetables on this rooftop, which would otherwise probably not be being used for anything, it reminds us slightly of the underground hydroponics farms in London. If you want to try hydroponic vegetables for yourself, to see if you can taste the difference, but are lacking a large-scale hydroponics farm in your area, do not worry – we offer hydroponics equipment suitable for homes and small-scale growing, allowing for all to grow vegetables in the comfort of their own homes."
