Vertical farming to nourish Uganda

At EcoLife Foods we make agriculture exciting for youth, lower the risk to do it year round regardless of location, with little soils. We farm in the city..........We are smart.

“Vertical farming at EcoLife Foods is an inclusive technology that promotes growing high value vegetables for both health and wealth. The vertical farms increase productivity per unit area by stacking plants on rails above each other. The rails are made from locally available material. The incorporation of quality soil management techniques, reuse of waste materials such as - polybags, and sub marginal production areas—is encouraged in sustainable systems and lowers cost of production in vertical farming.”  

We grow more variety of leafy green produce on less land, using less water, less soils therefore preventing deforestation, conserving water, reducing greenhouse emissions.
