Sky Greens is Canada’s first low carbon, hydraulic-driven, commercial vertical farming system. We offer companies a significant competitive advantage in the form of cutting-edge, high-quality, and efficient commercial vertical farming technology.
As a world leader in innovative high-density vertical farming solutions, Sky Greens Canada’s mission is to transform the indoor/greenhouse growing experience through intelligent, space-saving, rotating growing solutions.
With Canada importing 80% of its fresh fruit, and 58% of its vegetables each year, we are assisting in the movement to the increase production of locally grown food. The recent challenges in the supply chain disruptions, unpredictable weather, fire and water shortages, (plus a steadily increasing demand for better and local food), have highlighted the importance of growing sustainable crops indoors year-round.
Our vertical growing technologies are our effort to provide a whole repertoire of complete urban solutions. We are enabling cities and communities to be self-sustaining with urban farming technologies that allows minimum reliance on imported resources.
Sky Greens Canada is dedicated to transforming the farming industry through the use of innovative green urban solutions.
It is our mission:
Growing vertically has many added benefits. When compared with traditional monolayer farms, the Sky Greens Canada vertical farming system increases the plants per square meter, promotes year-round growing, reduces the carbon footprint, and limits the need for herbicides. By intensifying the land use, our technology can result in 10 times more yield per unit of land area.
Our 9 meter vertical farming tower uses a total of 60 square feet or 8.36 square meters (including walk way). This product can fit 912 - 1824 plants depending on the type of plant and the spacing between plants.
Rotation is powered by a unique patented hydraulic water-driven system which utilizes the momentum of flowing water and gravity to rotate the troughs. Only 40W of electricity - equivalent to one light bulb - is needed to power one 9m vertical farming tower.
Being housed in a protected environment ensures that the system can be relatively maintenance-free and have low manpower dependency. The rotating troughs and intensified plant-to-plot ratio also mean high manpower efficiency.
At the Ministry of National Development (MND) Urban Sustainability R&D Congress in June 2011, Sky Greens together with AVA won the Minister for National Developments R&D Award for vertical farming. This is an innovative and green solution addressing national urban food sustainability.
In October 2014, we are proud to be honored with the Singapore Sustainability Award by the Singapore Business Federation.
In August 2015, we were announced as one of the five winners of the INDEX: Award 2015, the world's biggest design award. The 5 Winners were selected out of a total of 1123 nominations received from 72 countries. Sky Greens Vertical Farming System emerged as a winner in the “Work” Category.
Sky Greens Vertical Farming System was also included in the 2015 Sustainia100 which features the forefront in sustainability innovation. Sustainia100 is published by Sutainia, a sustainability think tank working to scale the deployment of innovative solutions and provide industries/organizations with a shortcut to sustainable transformations
