TAA visit to Aponic’s Soil-less Vertical Agriculture Trials, near Cambridge, 23rd Feb

October 9th, 2018

TAA East Anglia has been invited by Jason Hawkins-Row of Aponic Co Ltd, to visit their controlled environment trials at the NIAB centre near Cambridge. This commercial vertical soil-less growing system uses 90% less water than traditional agriculture, runs on rain water and solar power, does not emit harmful run-off into the environment and massively reduces the need for fossil fuels in food production. We shall be able to see their systems for producing vegetables and to discuss their applicability to tropical agriculture and small-scale peri-urban agriculture. As the trials are indoors, we shall not be limited by weather. More information on the trials can be viewed on-line. See TAA Events pages for timing and location. Places are limited, please book asap via Eventbrite. 29.12.17
