The CropBox is a farm.

It’s a highly productive Hydroponic farming system that’s environmentally friendly  and a space efficient means of farming under LED lights. In addition to higher yields and water efficiency, the systems can be configured to support production of crops year-round.

It’s versatile. The CropBox can be set up to grow rudimentary greens or produce at commercial yields. Some crops can grow twice as fast as traditionally farmed crops. Water is re-circulated in the system thereby using 90% less water than traditional farming. So The CropBox is designed to save land, save water, eliminate agricultural runoff and chemical pesticides.

It can create jobs, support local farming, and it’s even well suited for deployment in large-scale disaster responses. It also is particularly well suited for the altitude, latitude, climate and location of Las Vegas, home of Ellison Lifestyle Group’s headquarters.

Ellison Lifestyle Group incorporates The CropBox as part of its SuperFood Friends K thru 5 school curriculum. Students learn the principles of agriculture and hydroponic growing, and can propose and test hypotheses to improve any aspect of the growing process.

The Cropbox yields enough greens to turn a profit. So it can pay for itself. The curriculum introduces students to well-established greenhouse practices. As the plants grow, they are encouraged to test their ideas to improve the process. In the advanced stages, students learn value lessons about nutrition and careers in agriculture and botany.

What is more, The CropBox generates computer data and has a Smart Phone app, creating opportunities to introduce students to computer code, such as Python, Ruby on Rails and SQL.

The CropBox even has the potential to serve as a rallying point for community building, with schools hosting tours and a student farmer’s market. Moreover, The CropBox can support the training and employment of veterans and people with physical disabilities as greenhouse workers.
