Local Garden is North America’s first ever vertical garden farm in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Built on the rooftop of a Richards Street parkade, Local Garden produces up to 3500 pounds of fresh healthy greens a week throughout the year. That’s as much production as a 5 acres farm, but they do it in a concrete structure in a 6000 square foot area.
How do they do it? Local Garden’s patent pending vertical growing technology requires 92% less water than conventional field farming practices and produces a bounty of greens without the use of any pesticides, right in our downtown core.
