ROOFTOP FARMING

Rooftop Organic Farming will become more and more popular in times to come because of the following reasons:

1.

Each house would not only become self-sustainable in producing its own healthy food, it could also generate CARBON CREDITS as it is a highly water-efficient and very low-energy farming system that we have created.

 

 

2.

People will soon realize that 70% of the money that they pay for a kg of vegetable is the cost of transporting it and the cost of wastage on the way.

 

 

3.

Farmers will stop growing vegetables as the water-table around the cities goes down.

 

 

4.

Cancer in adults, neurological disorders in elders and allergies in children will take epidemic proportions.

5.

By growing Fresh vegetables on the rooftop, we cover the un-utilized rooftops with a natural green cover which will significantly bring down the temperature of the building thus reducing the power consumption of the building.

6.

The containers used for growing organic veg on rooftop can be used for catching the rainwater and harvesting it.

What is ROOFTOP Farming

Rooftop farming is the cultivation of produce for food on the roof of a building. In addition to the aesthetic, recreational, ecological, and architectural benefits provided by roof gardens, rooftop farming’s focus on local food production supplies its maintainers and the community with fresh produce and promotes small-scale local agriculture as well as a tangible connection to the food source. Rooftop farming is most common in urban areas, where ground-level agricultural opportunities are scarce. It works wonders for urban planning, as well — rooftop farms absorb solar radiation reducing the ‘urban heat island effect’¸ insulates and cools the host building (and thereby reduces electricity use), and manages stormwater by delaying and reducing the hazards of rainfall runoff. The manifold benefits of rooftop farming are exciting, proven, and available now.



Benefits of ROOF TOP Farming

1. Energy Conservation
The use of a green roof compared to conventional roofing surfaces significantly impacts the energy balance within a building. Studies have shown that green roofs have the potential to reduce a building’s energy use by as much as 30%.

2. Stormwater Management
A green roof system absorbs rainwater and helps to prevent sewer system back-ups and contaminated stormwater overflow events. Green roofs can help prevent catastrophic environmental events.

3. Fossil Fuel Reduction
A rooftop farm grows Hyper-Local food. Growing Low Food Mile organic produce substantially reduces the fossil fuel consumption associated with the traditional food transportation system.

4. Global Warming
Green roofs sequester carbon from the atmosphere, lower the levels of carbon dioxide in the air, eliminate the build-up of greenhouse gases, and keep city temperatures cooler by effectively reducing the “Urban Heat Island Effect”.

5. Biodiversity
By replacing inorganic, lifeless roofs with living and thriving green spaces, green roofs support increased biodiversity in urban environments—offering a habitat for a multitude of organisms—from birds to butterflies to countless other beneficial insects.

6. Local Food Economy
Rooftop farms generate revenue for local farmers and businesses. Rooftop Agriculture is an emerging green technology that creates jobs and improves food self-sufficiency by providing organic and Hyper-Local food.

7. Nutrition
It produces an organic super food at its best. Special soil that has been infused with minerals, trace elements, omegas, proteins and microorganisms, every bite is packed with enzymes, antioxidants, nutrients, and minerals.

8. Community
A rooftop farm is a beacon of sustainability in the community which creates a tangible connection between the farmer and the consumer. Rooftop farms have the power to bring an urban community closer together.

9. Environmental Stewardship
Organic rooftop farming protects our soil and water from toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other dangerous chemicals typically used in conventional farming. Rooftop farms are a pro-active measure in building a sustainable future for our planet.

10. Aesthetics and Beauty
Stark urban skylines can be rejuvenated with green roofs. Supplanting inorganic, lifeless roofs with vibrant greenery, green roofs beautify cityscapes and balance an otherwise bleak horizon of concrete and tar.

Green roof helps cool cities



UNIQUE FEATURES OF ROOFTOP ORGANIC FARMING KIT

  • SOIL-LESS MEDIUM - We have developed our own proprietary organic soil-less medium which is 3 times lighter than soil and need never be replaced after it has been filled in the Rooftop Kit
  • LIGHT-WEIGHT, PORTABLE, LEAK-PROOF CONTAINERS - These containers are stabilized for UV rays and hence can withstand the climatic extremities on the rooftop for at least 3 years
  • SUB-SURFACE DRAINAGE FOR RAINWATER HARVESTING - The containers catch rainwater which can be channelised through a sub-surface drainage system that is installed at the bottom of the containers
  • HIGHLY WATER-EFFICIENT DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM - With just 1 bucket of water, 100 plants can be irrigated!
