Loop Farm

Loop Farm will provide knowledge and infrastructure necessary to combat hunger.

Our team will provide hunger-stricken areas knowledge and infrastructure for indoor farms and food output programs close to the populace.

Use Case

Loop Farm will operate as an extremely efficient producer of a multitude of crops right next to the people who need them. Not only will Loop Farm serve as a consulting firm dedicated to providing sustainable and productive solutions, our organization will also spearhead the creation of large-scale indoor farms close to large population centers especially in developing countries such as India and China. On a daily basis, Loop Farm will need only a lean workforce, sunlight, and whatever water collected from rainy days to nurture its crops. Power for the indoor farm will come from numerous sustainable sources such as the sun, wind, and even the water the system happens to collect.

Potential

Vertical farming allows a world where every town has their own local food source, grown in the safest way possible, where no drop of water or particle of light is wasted, and where a simple elevator ride can transport you to nature's grocery store. Not only will this optimize food distribution but also reduce the cost of food production by using renewable energy and less manual labor required per square feet of crop growth. Some advantages include - Grow food 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - Protect crops from unpredictable and harmful weather - Collect rainwater and reuse water collected from indoor environment - Eliminate use of pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides - Drastically reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
