At the crossroads of precision agronomy and cutting edge technology, Futura Gaïa designs a unique automated soil-based vertical farming solution, complementary to open field and greenhouse agriculture, which it markets in the form of turnkey farms. To face the accelerating impacts of climate change and water scarcity, Futura Gaïa wishes to contribute to improving the territories’ food sovereignty, while involving all local actors.
This solution also meets the needs of pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries by providing both pesticide-free and high-quality locally grown produce.
