AquaVerti Farms

The evidence is as clear as the increasingly extreme weather conditions all over the world: we need to get serious about changing the way we do things if we’re going leave behind a livable planet.

It’s a scary truth, but there’s also a lot to be optimistic about because there are so many initiatives working to do just that.

One such initiative is a unique company in Ville St Laurent that’s blending technology from the automotive industry with Dutch agricultural practices to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of lettuce – a crop that typically requires a lot of land, water and pesticides to produce, and experiences a great deal of waste simply due to the delicacy of lettuce leaves and how easily they can be damaged in harvesting, packaging and transporting.

Aquaverti Farms has developed a lettuce growing method that produces 0 greenhouse gases, uses 0 pesticides, and requires 95% less water than traditional farming methods.

Housed in what is essentially a large factory, Aquaverti makes use of the vertical space with hydroponic ponds! How do the farmers get up there to tend to their crops? They don’t! The robots do. This is where automotive technology comes into play. Robotic machines set the ponds into place, monitor conditions and even harvest the crops. Aquaverti uses custom-designed LED lights and nutrients are fed directly into the pools growing the lettuce. It’s an incredibly efficiently process with just 35 days from seed to harvest.

The picture in your mind right now (and in reality) is probably a far cry from that picturesque vision we have of rows of crops growing from the earth, bathed in the natural sunlight. It’s reasonable to wonder if crops grown in a factory can really be as nutritious as those grown traditionally. The answer is, even more so.

Canada is the world’s largest importer of lettuce in the world (way to go on eating your leafy greens, folks!). That’s no surprise though, since our climate makes it a difficult crop to grow locally, and impossible to grow outdoors year round. If we want it, we have to import it. Unfortunately, from the moment most produce is harvested, it begins to gradually lose nutritional value. If it takes several days after harvesting for lettuce to reach your plate, it simply isn’t as nutrient-rich as it was straight from the farm. By producing locally, lettuce can reach your plate literally hours after harvesting, ensuring a fresher, crisper, more nutritious salad.

Aquaverti has set of goal of producing up to 2000 heads of lettuce each day, year round. They are currently focused on growing curly lettuce as it is so easily damaged in transport. Growing it locally mean less transportation, which means less waste. As a bonus, curly lettuce is delicious and makes for beautifully instagrammable salads. Looks pretty good on a bacon double cheeseburger too.

Can other vegetables be grown this way? Some, but not most. The conditions lettuce needs to grow well makes it uniquely suited for this type of farming, so while we likely won’t be seeing carrots or potatoes grown on hydroponic structures, it’s initiatives like Aquaverti that drive the innovation, creativity and passion we need to take our planet in a new, sustainable direction.

montreal senior transition services

SPOTLIGHT: Lianas Senior Transition Support

If you have a senior loved one, or if you are a senior yourself, you know that this phase of life has the potential to be a wonderful experience, in many ways.

Unfortunately, it also has the potential to be challenging, discouraging, frustrating, even frightening.

And when it comes to moving into a retirement home or downsizing living arrangements, you also know that there is a lot more to consider than simply packing up and moving house.

Depending on your family circumstances, you may need to coordinate realtors, notaries, lawyers, and/or a variety of administrative and support services. You may want to compare and tour a range of retirement homes. You may need to consider in-home care or assistance, changing health or medical needs, and even work through the emotional or psychological struggles that can come with this life phase, for all family members.

With all that to consider… where do you even begin??

Well, you can start with Lianas Services.

Lianas Senior Transition Support

Lianas Services is an organization specializing in senior transition support. They help families with everything from determining and finding the right living arrangements (be that a retirement community, downsized home, or even your current home, with extra support), to packing up and moving, to working through paperwork, to coping with any stress or feelings of vulnerability, and everything in between.

The truth is, there are so many options, opportunities and services available to seniors. But, with so much out there, it can feel incredibly overwhelming to both seniors and their families.

Often, people put off the transition because of this sense of overwhelm. That can leave seniors isolated, unsupported and, most importantly, not fully enjoying all the opportunities available to them, or not getting the care that they truly deserve.

In many cases, seniors put off this transition because they (understandably) value their independence. But many of the services available can help them maintain, or get back, their independence and autonomy, so they can live life the way they truly want.

Lianas provides and facilitates access to a variety of services. You are matched with a Lianas Senior Advisor who does all the legwork of:

  • Finding the services that are right for you;
  • Coordinating appointments;
  • Meeting with service providers;
  • Arranging tours of retirement homes;
  • Communicating with you and your family throughout the process;
  • Following up with service providers and companies;
  • Even supporting you on a personal level by answering all your questions, listening to your concerns and needs, and truly putting the happiness and care of your family first.

The services of a Senior Advisor are provided at ABSOLUTELY NO COST to seniors and their families.

Additionally, Lianas’ Senior Transition Specialist, Stefanie Cadou, is also a residential real estate broker with Royal Lepage who specializes in helping families with all aspects of senior transitions including the sale of the home or condo, packing up and moving. These services are provided at a fee, to be determined based on the needs of the client.Matt-Del-Vecchio

The people at Lianas are true professionals. The founder and president, Matt Del Vecchio, is a Certified Professional Consultant on Aging (if his name sounds familiar, it might be because he is also the host of CJAD’s weekly radio show, “Life Unrehearsed”), and the incredible staff of Authorized Senior Advisors come from a range of professional backgrounds to uniquely meet the needs of the families who come to them.

 

If you, or someone you love, is entering into this phase of life, the Lianas Services team is the perfect guide to help you and your family experience this transition fully supported, with expert advice, knowledge and resources on your side.

Check out Lianas Services and be sure to watch and read testimonials from happy families.
