High-tech greenhouse planned for downtown Vancouver parkade rooftop

High-tech greenhouse planned for downtown Vancouver parkade rooftop | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

The roof of a city-owned downtown parkade will be converted to a high-tech vertical growing space capable of producing 95 tonnes of fresh vegetables a year.

Vancouver-based Valcent Products has entered into a memorandum of understanding with EasyPark, the corporate manager of the city’s parkades, to build a 6,000-square-foot greenhouse on underutilized space on the roof of the parkade at 535 Richards Street, in the heart of the downtown core.

The UN Global Pulse is out to make the UN more data-driven. UNGP acts as an intermediary for all of the data needs of groups within the United Nations. Currently we are collecting projects to partner on with the UN, but previous DataDive projects together entailed studying low-altitude imagery of African crops to determine fertilizer effectiveness and analyzing the results of a global cellphone survey on happiness and wellbeing around the world.
