The first generation of systems uses 60'' (1.5m) diameter shafts and each one requires approximately 304'' x 207'' (7.7m x 5.3m) of surface space.
In the long term, our goal is to produce any crop we desire. For our pilot, our efforts are focused on leafy greens and herbs and plan to quickly diversify towards traditional fruits and vegetables.
Plants are germinated on the surface, transferred into growing modules, and then lowered into underground systems to undergo the remainder of their growth stages. Once the plants are ready, the modules are lifted out and the plants are harvested.
