Vertical Roots hits the road in their Lettuce LocalMotive, spreading the good word of hydroponics – Charleston City Paper

Charleston City Paper features Vertical Roots farm site on Daniel Island, SC.

The technology of planting crops has revolutionized over the years.

The hydroponic growing system is simple — nutrient-filled water replaces traditional soil in order to grow the plant, and for the first time since we started tilling land, farmers can grow crops without the soil beneath their feet.

Hydroponic container grower Vertical Roots is taking one of their shipping container farms on the road — they’re hitting the streets with the Lettuce Localmotive, teaching people about the process of growing lettuce. They’ll be making stops at Publix and Greenwise Markets across the country.
