Tackling the otherwise impossible - greenhouse solutions in hot and dry coastal regions
In this Food Futurists x evokeAG. collaboration podcast we take a look into a sustainable greenhouse solution for hot and dry coastal regions, often where conventional agriculture would otherwise be impossible.
Professor Andy Lowe speaks to Charlie Paton, Founder of Seawater Greenhouse, a company that designs greenhouses that are powered by sunlight, utilise the seawater to water plants and also create a cooler and humid environment where plants can thrive and reduce evapotranspiration by up to 90%.
Seawater Greenhouse technology has been implemented in some of the hottest and driest places in the world, such as Abu Dhabi, Oman, Somaliland and here in Australia, in Port Augusta for Sundrop Farms.

We hope you enjoy their conversation.
