Frequently Asked Questions
What is hydroponics?
Hydroponics is the growing of plants without soil, whereby nutrients are delivered to plants via water.
Because it is better for the planet! Hydroponically grown greens use 90% less water than traditional methods, all without the use of harmful pesticides. Plus the greens are better for you.
How do the Micro-Farms work?
Each Micro-Farm features sophisticated software and sensors that work together to ensure crops get just the right amount of light, water and nutrients. And Babylon’s mobile app helps you keep tabs on your crops and get notified when they’re ready for harvest.
How much does one cost?
There are several different pricing options. Please contact us to learn more.
How much work is involved in growing?
