Cleveland’s hydroponic greenhouse goes off grid with wind turbines

urban greenhouse
Cleveland Foundation is hoping to build an urban green house in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Central Cleveland. The triangular shaped 5 1/2-acre ultramodern hydroponic greenhouse will produce several million heads of lettuce a year and a million pounds of basil and other herbs using nutrient-rich liquids instead of soil.

The greenhouse will be powered by a wind turbine and hence remain off-grid. It will also employ at least 40-50 people from the neighborhood thereby giving them economic independence apart from fresh, affordable produce with minimal output of energy and resources.
