A Bright Idea for Local Food

August 23, 2011

What if your neighborhood grocery store, also grew produce on the rooftop? Bright Farms LLC, a green house manufacturer, are the geniuses behind this highly sustainable idea which has the potential to transform the local food movement.

The Bright Farms hydroponic greenhouses use 10 times less water than traditional farming methods, and they are equipped with solar panels to generate heat.

This concept is beneficial for the supermarket, environment, and our health.  Shipping costs are cut out, food waste is reduced, and nutrition is increased since fresh picked veggies have more nutrients than their long distance cousins.

"Our fruit and vegetables are grown onsite for taste and nutrition and not for shelf life. We harvest every day and deliver to your supermarket on that same day. Transportation takes minutes not days".
