ECOLOGICALLY SUSTAINABLE URBAN AGRICULTURE

New ways to farm

By reimagining urban landscapes, Gotham Greens is creating new ways to farm, produce local food, revitalize communities and innovate for a sustainable future. The company builds and operates ecologically sustainable greenhouses in former industrial sites, rooftops, backyards and parking lots – sometimes even on top of supermarkets.

50,000 square meters of high-tech urban farms

"Ecologically sustainable urban agriculture can play a significant role in addressing issues around food"

Local cultivation

Gotham Greens is located in cities across America where it grows its year-round supply of produce for retail, restaurant and foodservice customers. Local cultivation and regional distribution enable Gotham Greens to deliver its products quickly after being harvested at their peak to ensure they are fresh tasting, nutritionally dense and long-lasting.

100 % renewable energy

The company’s produce is grown using hydroponic systems in 100 percent renewable electricity-powered greenhouses that use 95 percent less water and 97 percent less land than conventional farming.

Addressing issues around food

Gotham Greens believes hard work, dedication and a strong conviction that high-tech, ecologically sustainable urban agriculture can play a significant role in addressing issues around food. Their produce is grown using ecologically sustainable methods in technologically-sophisticated, climate controlled urban greenhouses.

Sustainable food production for future generations

Increasing urbanization asks for more, better, safer and more secure production capacity. Today’s centralized food production, with crops being grown where the climate conditions are favorable, is no longer sustainable. It results in long and complicated supply chains, poor food quality and enormous food losses of up to fifty percent. Compared to conventional farming, indoor farming uses 95 percent less water and 97 percent less land.

With the introduction of indoor farming technologies that are used at Gotham Greens, new opportunities for efficient local food produce for the city arise. Instead of relying on existing climate, their greenhouses give their expert farmers complete control of the growing environment, allowing Gotham Greens to create ideal conditions for their plants to thrive. Through automated systems, they can ensure that temperature, humidity and light levels, as well as air composition, are exactly the right balance.
