Your Local Greens, a hydroponic farm in Burlington, N.C., grows five types of kosher and organic lettuce. They grow their plants in water injected with nutrients in a controlled atmosphere with LED grow lights. Growing plants in this environment enables the company to use no pesticides, chemicals, or GMO’s (genetically modified organisms).
Chris Amaya, Farm Manager of Your Local Greens, believes that hydroponic farming is the wave of the future when you consider climate change, food demand, land availability, and dwindling natural resources. Growing hydroponically, you control the growth cycle and grow all year long, producing healthy food without compromising the environment.
