New tray design specifically made to the needs of Worldwide Local Salads  next step is to develop a Worldwide Local Salads in the USA if you are a grower or investor and want the best then consult the best.

The system incorporates high technology growing greenhouse equipment such as UV nutrient treatment, filters and automated nutrient and greenhouse control , the media used to raise and support the seedlings needs to be suitable for this purpose. Rockwool has been used for this reason, Part of the system will also incorporate new lighting technology that has been designed by Grahame and purpose built.  Having set up a company to supply Hydroponic grow systems and promoting sustainable hydroponic growing. This is a concept of growing leafy salads in an enclosed controlled insulated environment, therefore saving the waste energy that is released into the atmosphere. By using the latest growing techniques including Lighting ( LED’s). The whole growing practice can be sustainable. Grahame is now in Dubai to install an indoor growing system for Gourmet Herbs, Dubai's vision is one of Food Security and healthy Local food. Future plans are to build indoor grow units Worldwide below are why we think these are needed. We have Experienced Growers  to oversee the building of units in the US, and worldwide. Using insulated buildings keeps heating/ cooling cost down

  • Use of solar energy by using roof space if needed.
  • Re-circulation of water and nutrients keeps cost down
  • Inert material for plant growth that is either recycled and used as fuel
  • By growing local food, transport cost are kept to a minimum therefore cutting fuel miles.
  • Vertical growing grows per Cubic meter not Square meter,
  • Produce could either be cut and sold from site or supplied to local shops for same day sale, therefore
  • produce has a better shelf life and in turn has more flavor
  • Local food = local jobs, also makes use of redundant urban buildings.
  • Takes the myth out of growing ( you do not need muddy boots)
  • Growing in a clean room and growing your own plants you are therefore growing better and healthier produce.
  • BETTER than organic !!! Grahame has developed a growing technique that only needs pure H2o and minimal nutrients 
  • No Nutrient, No Chemicals, No Pesticides
