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:

  1. Nutrient film technique (NFT) - for leafy greens

  2. Fodder system - to boost our micro greens

  3. Ebb and flow system - for our herbs and edible flowers

  4. 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.
