Join the Herban Produce team on an interactive tour of our technology-powered urban farm. The tour spotlights our year-round greenhouse featuring our four hydroponic systems, a collaborative immersion unique in Chicago farming.
The four hydroponic systems:
Nutrient film technique (NFT) - for leafy greens
Fodder system - to boost our micro greens
Ebb and flow system - for our herbs and edible flowers
Dutch bucket system - to maximize our vine crops
The tour explores the science - biology, chemistry and physics of modern growing systems, with details on the larger urban farming themes including distribution and customers, local employment and education, and environmental sustainability.
