MIT CITY FARM

In September of 2013, Indoor Harvest signed an agreement with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Media Lab project “MITCityFarm,” to design and build a state-of-the-art high pressure aeroponic watering system as part of MIT Media Lab's “Changing Places” research.

By incorporating our trademark modular design, MITCityFarm’s current installation can be easily expanded throughout their 5th floor Media Lab research facility. The goal of this design was to maximize the number of concurrent research projects that can be conducted by MIT faculty and staff, by providing both hydroponic and aeroponic systems (as well as six other independent and variable processes) -- all in one modular platform.

This installation is currently in full operation, being used as a laboratory for developing new hardware and automation systems, as well as gathering data on all aspects of indoor plant production.
