Modular Farms Newsletter #3

Modular Farms Newsletter #3

Now that the dog days of summer have passed, we figured it was once again time to get you all formally updated on our whereabouts. Amidst the record-breaking heatwave that has been plaguing Toronto for the last few weeks, we have managed to keep cool by doing what we do best - working away in our climate-controlled Modular Farm!

The moment we have all been anticipating has finally arrived. The technicians have finished their work, our initial run of Modular Farm raised Kale has been harvested, and our first sets of Collard and Lettuce seedlings have been transplanted. Also, as you can see from the above photo, we've begun experimenting with the various colourful spectrums our Intravision Spectra Blade LED lights have to offer. If all proceeds as planned, expect to receive a formal invitation to our official unveiling very soon. 

On the R&D side, our team has been very busy designing the new line of secondary modules. With the Primary Module almost complete, we've turned our attention to developing the Vestibule, Off-Grid and Macro Farm modules next, as we consider them to be the most vital secondary modules. Once completed, those who have already purchased a Primary Module will be able to easily scale up their production capabilities, have an active climate and pest barrier, and have the ability to power their farms even in the most remote locations. 

Every Thursday afternoon for the past month and a half we've had the pleasure of being a part of the #FarmFreshTO pop-up farmer's market at the Bay Adelaide Centre. Unlike other farmers markets around the city, which tend to be more focused on simply buying and selling produce, the main mission of #FarmFreshTO has been to raise awareness of urban­ vertical farming practices and sustainable living.

We've greatly enjoyed engaging with, and educating, the public on the benefits and applications of our technology; we can't thank Usful enough for giving us such an amazing opportunity. If you're in the area we highly recommend coming down to Arnell Plaza on a Thursday to say hi, treat yourself to some samples, and get a hands-on look at our technology. Just be sure to do it soon, as the final day of the market is September 15th. 

Ending the food insecurity issue in Canada has always been, and will always be, the main reason for our existence. While this may seem like a daunting task, we've already seen great strides being made across the country by passionate, like-minded people who have been utilizing ZipGrow technology to feed themselves, their families, and communities in a sustainable fashion. We currently have Modular Farms scheduled for delivery from coast to coast in the next 12 months, however, there are so many Canadians still in desperate need of our help, and we need your help to get them properly fed. Contact us today to find out if a Modular Farm is a good fit for your family and community.
