Waterside Farms M Lite

  1. 1. Waterside Farms
  2. 2. This space was once our pool kitchen but was eventually closed due to a decline in business. In January 2011 our culinary team decided to use this space to grow our own produce to use in the restaurants. We started off using this space for an indoor organic container garden but later decided to switch to a fully hydroponic facility that utilizes several different hydroponic systems and growing methods.Indoor Garden
  3. 3. Indoor Garden – The Clean Out
  4. 4. Indoor Garden – The Construction
  5. 5. Indoor fully organic container garden using custom hand mixed soil-less growing mediums and vegan nutrients. Produced several different varieties of tomatoes including several rare heirlooms. Also produced Jalapenos, Habaneros, Snap Peas, and a variety of Herbs Separate grow rooms with specialized lighting and night/day cycles for the different stages of growth.Indoor Garden – Organic Container Garden

  8. 8. Our indoor organic container garden was quickly outgrowing itself and needed to be expanded. This is when we decided to expand out to the rooftop and create an outdoor garden using the same organic growing methods we were using in our indoor garden We started off with just a few containers growing only tomatoes but quickly expanded to where we have 52 containers and grow many varieties of herbs, tomatoes, jalapeños, an d habaneros.Rooftop Garden – Organic ContainerGarden

  12. 12. One problem we faced with the location of our rooftop garden was that we did not have a source of water without having to haul it With the expansion of the garden from just a few containers to 52 hauling water from the other side of the building was no longer an option This is when we designed and constructed an irrigation system from mostly recycled materials that captures and stores up to 660 gallons of rain water and with the use of a time controlled pump delivers water to each container using water efficient micro irrigation sprayers.Rooftop Garden – Rain Harvesting IrrigationSystem
  13. 13. Indoor fully hydroponic garden that utilizes several different hydroponic systems and growing methods. 65 Gal Deep Water Culture(DWC) system produces two large high yielding heirloom tomato plants. Two Lettuce Raft systems capable of producing 129 heads of baby lettuce every 28 days. Nutrient Film Technique(NFT) system that has 78 plant sites and produces herbs such as Basil, Mint, Thyme, Oregano, R osemary, Chives, Sage, ItalianIndoor Garden – Parsley, and Cilantro. Hydroponic Garden
  14. 14. Deep Water Culture is a hydroponicmethod of plant production by meansof suspending the plant roots in asolution of nutrient-rich, oxygenatedwater. Traditional methods favor theuse of plastic buckets and largecontainers with the plant contained in anet pot suspended from the center ofthe lid and the roots suspended in thenutrient solution. The solution isoxygen saturated from an air pumpcombined with porous stones. Indoor Garden – Hydroponic Garden
  15. 15. A Lettuce Raft is just another style of aDeep Water Culture system, thedifference is that in a lettuce raft theplants contained in net pots that arefixed in a Styrofoam lid that floats ontop of the nutrient solution where as ina typical DWC system the lid is fixed inplace. This method allows the growerto use large shallow reservoirs or traysand multiple rafts containing largernumbers and multiple varieties oflettuce and other greens can be floatedat a time.

  18. 18. Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) is ahydroponic technique where a veryshallow stream of water containing allthe dissolved nutrients required forplant growth is re-circulated past thebare roots of plants in a gully, alsoknown as channels. NFT, because ofits design, provides a system where allthree requirements for healthy plantgrowth can be met at the same time.The result of these advantages is thathigher yields of high-quality produceare obtained over an extended periodof cropping.

  20. 20. We have since upgraded our indoor hydroponic garden with more efficient systems that produce much higher yields and maximize the use of our space. Two Nutrient Film Technique(NFT) systems that have a total of 319 plant sites and are capable of producing 79 heads of baby lettuce a week. Drip System containing 26 plant sites and produces herbs such as Thyme, Oregano, Rosemary, a nd Chives.Indoor Garden – Hydroponic Upgrades
