Perkins and Will Leadership Visit Ponix for a Farm Tour
In November 2019, Ponix hosted a farm tour for Perkins and Will architecture ﬁrm and its guests from across the country. The tour brought together a diverse group of professionals, including collegiate presidents, architects, city planners, real estate developers, government oﬃcials, and more. During the tour, the group explored hydroponic growing technology and the role that public-private partnerships can play in bringing elements of sustainability into cities and promoting urban agriculture.
How Hydroponic Farming Solutions Promote Sustainability
Hydroponic farming is a sustainable and innovative solution for food production that utilizes water-based systems instead of soil. This method reduces water usage, decreases the use of pesticides and chemicals, increases energy eﬃciency, protects soil health, and enables year-round growing.
Hydroponic farming is an ideal solution for urban areas where land is limited and traditional agriculture may not be feasible. The compact design and controlled growing environment of hydroponic systems allow for the creation of sustainable food sources in urban areas, reducing the need for transportation and promoting local food security.
Hydroponic Farming for Sustainable Urban Agriculture
Ponix and Perkins and Will see hydroponic farming as a solution for sustainable food production in urban areas. This innovative method reduces environmental impact through eﬃcient water usage, reduced chemical dependence, enhanced energy eﬃciency, protected soil health, and year-round growing. They believe that hydroponic farming will help shape the future of urban agriculture while promoting local food security.
