Lufa Farms is a commercial rooftop greenhouse built in 2010, one of three such gardens that help feed 2% of Montreal.
Lufa Farms was created by a biochemist and software engineer, and these charming hosts give a guided tour of their facility, which uses coconut husks and carefully balanced nutrient water to nourish the variety of plants:
Lufa Farms is spearheading the urban agriculture movement by pushing technology to the cutting edge, producing fresh produce right in the city center of Montreal.
In this episode of Où se trouve, we follow Mohamed Hage (CEO of Lufa Farms) and Simon Garneau on an in depth, educational tour of their state of the art facilities. Learn how they are producing vegetables without soil, how they manage pest control without herbicides or fungicides and how they conserve water in a more environmentally sustainable way than a conventional farm.
What's most impressive, is they're doing it all on Montreal island, right in the city - so the food they make is delivered to their customers in the best condition and at its freshest.
