Kwadacha Nation is constructing three hydroponic greenhouses that will operate throughout the year, and will produce 30 tons of organic vegetables annually. The greenhouses are engineered using German technology, and will be heated by a biomass plant.
The slogan that Kwadacha Nation has adopted is “a salad per person per day”, and the greenhouses will certainly do that by producing a variety of greens, cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes for their community. The anticipated production from the greenhouses will be more than enough for Kwadacha members. In fact, the plan is to sell surplus organic produce, thereby creating not only healthy food for the community, but also creating an economic development opportunity.
The plan is for the first vegetables to be planted by early September.
