Weʼre raising £20,000 to Raise funds for a self-sustainable hydroponic greenhouse. The produce will be sold to generate money to be donated to community projects.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
With the help of generous benefactors Food Frenzy is hoping to raise £20,000 or more to establish the necessary funding to create a self sustaining greenhouse system that is capable of generating enough income to support it's own longevity whilst simultaneously raising money to be donated to good causes and initiative ideas. We are currently living in a time where we have access to technology that could transform outdated systems. Hydroponic farming can be utilised to bring about monetary competence that could be selflessly donated.
I believe this initiative will plant the seed that will prove that we have the capability to selflessly provide and support important causes through implementing Eco-friendly systems. Helping one person helps us all .
Through using greenhouse crop cultivation, a high yield of produce can very easily be generated in a short space of time especially when paired with the use of a hydroponic system. This is because greenhouse farming can provide a controlled environment in which the crops thrive in. The farming techniques that will be implemented within the south facing system are the following: Vertical Hydroponics, The Kratky Method as well as Dutch buckets.
The goal is to raise the necessary funds for the system by mid 2019, and to begin the build shortly after. By the end of the first year the system is projected to be able to provide monthly to bi-monthly handouts of monetary support to causes that are in need of funding. After the first initial year of selling all the produce generated to restaurants and the local community the system will have generated a large enough amount of money that can then start to be donated to creative ideas, new technological advances and local community projects.
