A startup based in Bristol has been doing something really interesting; the company is growing all kinds of salads indoors without the presence of sunlight and even soil which seems to be the essential elements for growing crops.
The Bristol-based firm “LettUs Grow” suspends the roots of plants in a nutrient-dense mist rather than in water. So without water, soil and sunlight, yet they are growing salads indoors successfully. The company was awarded £89,000 on Thursday in a Postcode Lottery Green Challenge which awards cash to the companies for developing environmental business projects.
Charlie Guy Co-founder in an interview with BBC said, “This is a new sustainable method for growing salad corps, we can use 95% less water and grow the crops in urban environments and we can grow crops all year along without the impact of extreme weather conditions.”
