sustainability

We work hard to leave a positive footprint on our environment. Each of our glasshouses is also a power station using Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generators. As well as providing the electricity to light and heat our glasshouses, we provide additional power back to the local grid. We have enough generating capacity to power approximately 50,000 homes.

We also have vast reservoirs on site to collect as much rainwater as possible. Our glasshouses are engineered carefully so that rainwater runs off them into the reservoirs and we even collect the condensation produced in the glasshouses. We usually collect around 50 million gallons from rainfall, with capacity to gather 70 million gallons. This makes us around 85% self-sufficient for water and ensures we aren’t a drain on the local water table. Our growing system is a ‘closed loop’ hydroponic method that involves no run-off being discharged as waste.
