A vertical system of urban agriculture is now becoming very popular across the world. With land availability a problem vertical farming allows you to produce organic super food at your home in a city.
Many companies are using this technique. But we have noticed that their products are very costly making is unviable for consumers across all spectrums to enjoy the benefit of chemical free organic food.
Also most farms are focused on vegetable production where as TONA has created a model for both vegetable and meat cultivation.
The secret to making the products from urban vertical farming lies in nature. Remove the costly LED lights, posh looking buildings, expensive adverts and see how much it positively impacts in cost reduction.
Good plantation practice only needs proper air, heat, light and water with nutrition. Any media(soil, sand, water, even air) which can hold water with nutrition, can grow plants correctly. Day-to-day family waste can be the feed for chicken or turkey or quail. Their waste is a good source of fish. Fish waste is converted to plant nutrient by some bacterias like nitrosococus, nitrosomonus and bioreactor.
TONA is helping many individuals and companies take up this sustainable GHG free vertical farming practice.
