Living Farming Tree - A sustainable mini-indoor farm for urban farming

Living Farming Tree (LFT) is a soilless mini-indoor farm that uses the aeroponic technique to grow greens efficiently all year round.

The solution allows the minimum inventory with the maximum diversity to provide the best conditions for plant growth while consuming limited water and energy resources. It can be configured in a Tree or in Cubes, to adapt to any space available and different crop-types. Plants grow efficiently with the use of LED lighting technology for horticulture, that adapts automatically to the crop-type and growth stage of the plants using color changes for visual communication of the status of the system. Sensors are used to collect data and adapt the LFT to its surrounding environment. It can control each cultivation module separately and can provide different conditions for different types of urban farmed food (i.e. Greens, Algae, Mushrooms, Insects). The system is connected with the user through a digital platform for its remote monitoring and control, and through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning the environment control parameters will always improve by gathering data from all existing systems.
