Farming in Saudi Arabia is environmentally friendly.
At its newly built facility at KAUST, Edama turns organic waste into soil improver products for desert agriculture, tree plantation, and land restoration projects. Edama products boost farmers’ yield and plant performance while reducing water irrigation.
Natufia is a company founded and led by Gregory Lu that harnesses cutting-edge technology to create a smart vertical hydroponic garden within a fridge size like a confined cabinet. The machine is a fully automated smart garden that creates perfect controlled conditions for plant growth. The idea is to break the barrier between producing and storing food. At Natufia, they believe that everyone should grow their own food to sustain our resources further and reduce waste.
The machines Natufia developed are impressive and very simple to operate. You can grow up to 32 plants at the same time. It comes with a seedlings tray, a so-called ‘nursery’, where seeds will germinate before they are moved into the main grow chamber to mature and be harvested. The greens grown in Natufia are the freshest and most nutrient-dense plants that can be grown, GMO and pesticide-free, right from the comfort of your home.
