The Urban Seed Difference
+ Design & Manufacture Proprietary Technology
Urban Seed Inc. have designed and manufactured the entire hydroponic system. Our experience in developing different plastics allows us to create reusable materials for commercial use. Eliminating the middle man helps keep our capital cost at a minimum which separates us from other competitors. Urban Seed is as sustainable as the food we grow.
+ Locally Funded
Urban Seed Is a homegrown urban farming company that has brought community leaders together for one common goal: A new food supply chain for the Las Vegas Valley.
+ University Engagement
Urban Seed Inc. is collaborating with some of the top researchers in their field at UNLV and Nevada State College. Sustainable agriculture is a top tier priority for Nevada and we have been working with a wide variety of professors from Education and Public Health Science to Engineering.
+ Happiest Plants on Earth
Urban Seed takes it back to the true fundamentals of growing. Seed. Water. Nutrition. With these three components in a controlled environment we are able to reach the plants full DNA potential making for some of the happiest plants on earth.
- Happy Plants = Happy People
+ Vertical not Horizontal Farming
Urban Seed grows on an A-Frame design, unlike most vertical farms that use a horizontal stacking method. This allows us to gain the most out of every square foot while using our most natural resource, the sun. In Las Vegas, we average 350 days of sunlight every year.
+ Closed Loop Aeroponic System
How do we save more than 90% less water than traditional farming and 40% more than hydroponics? Create a closed loop system that doesn't require a drain! That means all of the water that goes through our system is recollected, filtered and distributed. The only water that we do not capture is through the plants root uptake.
+ Proprietary Blend of Pharmaceutical Grade Nutrients
Nutrition is everything and we want to feed our plants the best nutrition possible. Not only do we use pharmaceutical grade blends but Urban Seed has a proprietary nutrient blend based on each different plant variety.
- Not all plants are treated equally.
+ Community Engagement
Food is a common unity that brings people together, a community. What better way to bring a community together than working with non-profits that target specific needs in our valley. Urban Seed is determined to build sustainable communities, whether its through food banks or educational programs.
+ Reusable Packaging
Urban Seed is more than just growing food. We are a technology company at heart that is always innovating for the entire food supply chain. We have created a delivery method that will keep the produce fresher longer, and reusable. Theres creates ZERO waste which is a massive problem with current packaging practices.
+ Boutique Greenhouses
Urban Seed's greenhouses are boutique in size in order to control the environment based on which plant variety we are growing. Although the greenhouses are small in size they are large in output. A perfect template for urban agriculture.
+ Demostration Kitchen
Urban Seed is giving chefs a creative outlet to showcase these local fresh ingredients through recipes, film cooking shows, and educational classes.
+ Continuous Harvesting
When you are in season all year you need to be continuously harvesting. At Urban Seed we have a world class seeding schedule that ensures we will have the freshest produce for our clients everyday.
