"The farm of the future"
We are creating a prototype of the farm of the future: a 100% off-the-grid greenhouse that produces vegetables, fruits and fish year-round, all in an automated way that requires very little maintenance.
This model sounds expensive, but it's actually very affordable ($4,000 to $6,000) and will pay for itself within 3-7 years just from the food it produces.
Our unique and innovative design combines three of the most promising technologies for a sustainable future: Earthships, Aquaponics and Passive Solar Greenhouses.
What I find fascinating is that the organizers are located in Montreal; that is, in a climate much like Maine's. They've got snow up there, or so I hear.
