US (TX): KUBO and Lufa both on panel at SXSW Eco

Last week, the SXSW Eco conference on sustainable agriculture and horticulture and urban farming was held in Austin, the state capital of Texas, in the USA. This conference featured a speaker panel formed by two innovative entrepreneurs active in sustainable greenhouse horticulture: Mohamed Hage of Lufa Farms (Montreal) and Wouter Kuiper, CEO of KUBO. The two panellists discussed sustainable greenhouse horticulture in an urban environment.

The first Ultra Clima® greenhouse was completed for Lufa (3936 square metres) on 31 July 2013. The greenhouse has been constructed on the roof of a distribution centre in Montreal's Laval district. Lufa farms is a unique company with a unique concept for running a commercially successful horticulture company in the middle of a city. Featuring more responsibly grown local produce with minimum energy consumption, greater food safety, recirculation of drain and rain water and direct delivery to the consumer, it marks a real revolution in urban horticulture!
