BERLIN: IN A COURTYARD OF GLOGAUER STRASSE, IN THE HEART OF KREUTZBERG IN BERLIN, EREZ AND GUY GALONSKA AND OSNAT MICHAELI, CREATED INFARM
A farming incubator that aims to provide urban communities with the freedom to grow fresh, local, organic produce, no matter the season, right at home.
The company combines cutting edge food technology production and sustainable design, to create highly efficient vertical farms in cities.
Their design approach is to imitate nature’s most elegant techniques – the phases of tide, the function of seeds in a petal, how a tree in the forest strives for light, how wind strengthens the plant’s stems and how lungs breath in fresh oxygen.
Their combine this approach with the latest technologies- LED growing lights, micro sensors and data processing – to create ultra efficient growing systems.
The mission is to implement these systems into existing spaces and structures, rather than constructing new city mega projects to accommodate them.
