Newly started company Grönska focus on providing locally grown vegetables and herbs. The greens are produced in an indoor farm in a suburb of Stockholm, where the plants are growing in vertically placed shelves. The energy is provided by LED lamps and the nutrients are absorbed by the roots from a nutrient solution.
The controlled indoor environment takes away the need for pesticides, and also makes it possible to control and reduce the nutrient emissions. With LED lights providing the energy, it is possible to grow vegetables all year round, a great advantage in the nordic climate. Since the farm is locally placed in Stockholm, the dependence on long transports and imports from far away countries is reduced, and the vegetables and herbs can be delivered fresh just after harvest!
