With the launch of Urban Farm Tech our aim is to build a platform for some of the highest quality small-scale businesses and products in our industry. All of the products listed on Urban Farm Tech have beautiful stories of small budgets and small operations that are making big impact in our world servicing the every-day gardener.
Doing business here is your initiative to invest in the people and passions you care about. You're not just buying a product, you're investing in a way of life and in a vision that involves all of us.
I hope your experience here will be a good one, and that you'll feel good about knowing you've put your money where your mouth is. Here are some of the suppliers we're partnering with and their stories:
I am a small-town girl from Wyoming. I've spent the last ten years tryng to learn to be self-sufficient in a rapidly changing world. I received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 2008, but still feel that life is the best teacher there is. An unexpected move to a very rural area in the Missouri Ozarks has sparked my current quest for finding ways to make a living at home.
We are passionate about growing food for our local community in a sustainable, highly efficient manner and helping other farmers do the same and live better as a result.
We've seen the farms of our families, friends and neighbors suffer from drought and financial issues. We're also all too familiar with our current centralized, fossil-fuel dependent food system and nutrient-deficient food it produces. These unsustainable farming practices give us a bleak picture of the future. One we're not comfortable knowing our children will inherit.
That's why we're striving to create a better, brighter and healthier future. For our children and for the health of our country.
The Aquaponic Source
The Aquaponic Source is a Colorado-based company with a mission to empower people to grow their own fish and vegetables in their homes and schools. We strive to achieve this mission by being committed to the following:
1) Open Source Learning Materials
2) Finding and Developing Products Specifically for Aquaponics
3) Providing Industry Leadership.
Promoting Aquabarrel® is not only good for the environment, good for the local economy, but it also extends the life of an existing plastic barrel that was headed to the landfill or shredder. Our continued success and growth provides jobs and reduces infrastructure costs within the local storm water districts.
We plan to continue to bring new and innovative high quality environmental conservation solutions to the public.
If everyone did just one thing to preserve the environment, like collecting rain water for watering their plants and lawn, we believe we will extend our natural resources.
Magic Tower Garden
Magic Tower Garden is a small company based out of Charlotte, North Carolina. We are dedicated to helping humanity by providing the tools necessary to grow fresh, nutrient-dense produce in the smallest footprint possible. Our outdated agriculture industry is in the midst of a massive paradigm shift and we are proud to be a small part of that. Our goal is to enable folks with little to no gardening experience to be successful in growing a tremendous amount of produce with ease. It’s time to get back to the basics.
