March 4, 2013, Vancouver — Vertical farming technology will be featured in a new project in British Columbia.
Vertical Designs Ltd. is entering into an agreement with Rendavi Developments Ltd. to purchase 6.5 acres in Squamish, B.C.
Rendavi Developments intends to use the site to build and showcase VDL’s vertical farming technology that focuses on growing produce and herbs.
All of the boutique packaged produce will be sold under the Vertical Designs trademarked brand, Eco Spirit.
Operations within the province will be headed by inventor and CEO, Nick Brusatore, who has personally designed and developed some of the world’s most advanced automated farming technology.
“I am pleased and excited to be working with Rendavi Developments,” said Brusatore.
“As we continue to build facilities throughout North America, we aim for optimum quality and efficiency through the use of our automated software. Our process meets and exceeds food safety certification, while dramatically reducing the water usage demands of traditional farming practices.”
