Basement Gardening Makes Hyperlocal Food Production A Reality

Basement Gardening Makes Hyperlocal Food Production A Reality

For upscale restaurants like Nana in Chicago, diners expect access the unordinary; namely, a wide variety of micro-greens and edible flowers to compliment their meals. However, chefs at Nana were at odds with the country-crossing shipment from California necessary to obtaining these micro-greens. Instead, they sought the assistance of locally-based Urban Canopy to install a hydroponic growing area in the building’s basement, leading to wider-spread interest in providing hyperlocal food sources across the city. More and more eateries and institutions are turning towards hydroponic and aeroponic growing systems to provide practically on-site production of greens.
