Brampton Grows Off-Grid shed is a self-sustaining, regenerative food system able to produce food for many families in Brampton.
This innovative technology contains its own ecosystem, using a combination of soil-based growing, hydroponics, and aquaponics systems to grow edible organic fruits and vegetables, and even edible fish. The shed is zero-waste and carbon negative, powered by solar and wind renewable energy, and it is built to withstand harsh winters.
The sustainable indoor farm provides an interactive educational experience for attendees of all ages to explore various features the shed has to offer.
On May 5, 2021, City Council approved an Off-Grid Organic Food Shed.
Brampton Grows Off-Grid shed was provided by Nature Harmony. Produce from the food shed will be donated to Regeneration Outreach Community to help feed families in Brampton, as part of the 2021 Backyard Garden Program and aligns with the Brampton Grow Green Environmental Master Plan, which cited urban agriculture as an opportunity for the City.
The unique infrastructure is located at and supported by Brampton Fire Station 212, at 8220 Mississauga Road, for a six-month pilot beginning this spring.
