On my trip to NYC, I had to stop by a mythical urban farm on top of a Whole Foods in Brooklyn, NY, where they grow 13+ different types of greens and herbs. It was called Gotham Greens, which is just about the best name for a hydroponic greenhouse you’ll ever hear. They use nutrient film technique (NFT) channels to grow basil, arugula, leaf lettuce, and more. And better yet, it’s all automated, down to CO2 monitoring, shade clothes, and more. They even make their own line of salad dressings, pestos, and other value-added products with the produce they grow! There’s so much to learn in this episode, and I’m gonna have to go back to learn about the nuts and bolts of the hydroponic operation as well. I think urban farming models like this will soon become the norm as we move into a future of food that is going to require MUCH smarter use of our natural resources. LEARN MORE Epic Gardening is much more than a YouTube channel. I have a website with 300+ gardening tutorials as well as a podcast where I release daily gardening tips in five minutes or less. There’s also a Facebook group with over 1,500 other gardeners sharing their tips. → Website: http://www.epicgardening.com/blog → Podcast: https://apple.co/2nkftuk → FB Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/epicgardening/ CONNECT WITH GOTHAM GREENS → http://gothamgreens.com/ → https://www.instagram.com/GothamGreens/ → https://www.facebook.com/GothamGreens DONATE If you like my videos, articles, or podcast episodes, please consider supporting on Patreon.
