Initial brainstorming, research on vertical farming of tomatoes lead to the realization that traditional farming consumes a tremendous amount of land. Seeing an opportunity we began discussing our own take on vertical farming.
Conducted research to understand more about vertical farming. Discovered that hydroponics and soil-grown vertical farming was a potential choice for our project.
Narrowed down research to help us with designing the model and meeting the needs of the plants we planed to grow. Research lighting systems and watering methods that would be most effective.
Planning to put together experiments lead to research on the conditions lettuce would need to be in to survive. Due to a lack of ability to find research regarding the best distance the grow light should be at led to an experiment designed to produce results that would provide such data.
