Honest Greens grows in a modern indoor vertical farm, a utopia for delicious, healthy plants! These tender plantlings are given exactly what is required for keeping them comfortable in their ideal climate from seed to harvest. Farming indoors is a modern approach to agriculture allowing us to grow delicious, nutritious and beautiful greens all year round regardless of the weather. No sun? No rain? No problem!


HOW IT WORKS

The germinated seeds are transplanted into our state of the art grow towers, where they grow under horticultural lights which provide our plants with the optimal wavelengths for healthy growth. Our climate and nutrient control systems monitor our plant’s growing environment constantly, ensuring that the plants receive exactly what they need, when they need it.

OUR TEAM
Sri Lanka’s agricultural industry has resorted to archaic systems for a number of years. Due to ocean temperatures rising 40% faster than initially predicted, we could experience severe flood and droughts in the years to come. Being a consumer of leafy greens vegetables ourselves we found it extremely difficult to find consistent produce of a high standard. Whilst produce in Sri Lanka is getting better, due to high humidity and temperatures it would be very difficult for traditional and greenhouse methods to grow certain crops to their full potential.
