Urban Seed have designed and manufactured the entire hydroponic system. Our experience in developing different plastics allows us to create reusable materials for commercial use. Eliminating the middle man helps keep our capital cost at a minimum which separates us from other competitors. Urban Seed is as sustainable as the food we grow.
Urban Seed is collaborating with some of the top researchers in their field at UNLV and Nevada State College. Sustainable agriculture is a top tier priority for Nevada and we have been working with a wide variety of professors from Education and Public Health Science to Engineering.
Urban Seed grows on an A-Frame design, unlike most vertical farms that use a horizontal stacking method. This allows us to gain the most out of every square foot while using our most natural resource, the sun. In Las Vegas, we average 350 days of sunlight every year.
Food is a common unity that brings people together creating a community. Urban Seed understands that if we work together with the community we can create real positive change. We are determined to grow sustainable, resilient communities by providing access to locally grown food.
Urban Seed is more than just growing food. We are a technology company at heart that is always innovating for the entire food supply chain. We are creating a delivery method that will keep the produce fresher longer, and reusable. This creates ZERO waste which is a massive problem with current packaging practices.
When you are in season all year you need to be continuously harvesting. At Urban Seed we have a world class seeding schedule that ensures we will have the freshest produce for our clients everyday.
Urban Seed is a homegrown urban farming company that has brought community leaders together for one common goal: A new food supply chain for the Las Vegas Valley.
Urban Seed takes it back to the true fundamentals of growing. Seed. Water. Nutrition. With these three components in a controlled environment we are able to reach the plants full DNA potential making for some of the happiest plants on earth.
Happy Plants = Happy People
How do we save more than 90% less water than traditional farming and 40% more than hydroponics? Create a closed loop system! That means all of the water that goes through our system is recollected, filtered and distributed. The only water that we do not capture is through the plants root uptake.
Nutrition is everything and we want to feed our plants the best nutrition possible. Not only do we use pharmaceutical grade blends, but Urban Seed has a proprietary nutrient blend based on each different plant variety.
Not all plants are treated equally!
Urban Seed's greenhouses are boutique in size in order to control the environment based on which plant variety we are growing. Although the grow structures are small in size they are large in output. A perfect template for urban agriculture.
Urban Seed has deep roots with the hospitality groups that dominate the strip. Having buyers with large consistent orders allows our business to expand into 100 greenhouses over the next five years in Las Vegas alone! This will only cover a 10% dent in the market as it sits today, which means there will always be a need to feed.
