Here at Genesis Biome, we ensure that our production process maintains a high level of environmental sustainability. Green roofs represent a new frontier of humane and sustainable urban planning. Our farms are located atop roofs that can mitigate the phenomenon of flooding by recycled water back to the crops, global warming by plants undergo a process called evapotranspiration, when they release moisture into the atmosphere, which further cools cities down. The cooling effects of green roofs can also reduce energy cost and health care costs.
Moreover, Genesis Biome rooftop farms can bolster a city’s food security by providing a steady supply of produce and access to nutrition foods locally. Finally, reduce the ecological footprint of food because they don’t have to be transported cross-country or internationally.
