Philippines: Vertical farming company wants to spread hydroponics across the country

Manila-based Agri-Tech and urban farming company Urban Greens is announcing a project tie-up with the Bonifacio Arts Foundation under the direction of the head curator of The Mind Museum, who oversees all things art- and science-related in BGC.

The project is based on the creation of a prototype hydroponic setup within the premises of The Mind Museum science museum, to show off futuristic farming techniques like hydroponics to grow clean and healthy greens right in the heart of the city space.

As of 2018, Urban Greens has been building a prototype farm in collaboration with the Bafi. Based on its modular and scalable nature, it has the potential to be developed on a much bigger scale supplying produce to establishments and residents within Bonifacio Global City and neighboring communities. Other projects of the company include a partnership with a major real estate developer.

Urban Greens envisions that hydroponic urban farming will evolve the Philippine vegetable food scene and provide a sustainable addition to our communities.
