May 12, 2023 – Lufa Farms is integrating greenhouse technologies into an indoor farm to maximize local production year-round.
In the borough of Saint-Laurent, the former Sears headquarters is now home to a complete urban food ecosystem, including the world’s largest rooftop greenhouse, a new distribution centre, and now a new indoor farm that feeds thousands of customers every week.
Featuring Green Automation technology typically used in greenhouses, this farm is equipped with a single-story hydroponic growing system and 1,000 LED lights. Inside the facility, the following crops are grown; lettuce, spinach, celery, basil, kohlrabi, fennel, and watercress are grown without fossil fuels.
Designed to demonstrate the viability of low-cost indoor farming at its full potential, this polyculture farm will harvest 20,000 vegetables and herbs daily. Lufa Farms’ indoor farm products are now available exclusively to their online marketplace subscribers.
