"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and the cause and prevention of disease." ___ Thomas A. Edison
We are in the middle of a global crisis. Healthcare costs are going through the roof, providing food for the increasing population is a rising concern, and declines in the overall wellness of modern societies are troubling. Both physical and mental health are intertwined in modern society.
Controlled Environment Agriculture can help to mitigate the effects of urbanization and food security, Growing crops in the urban environment can help on many fronts. Providing local sources of fresh foods can help restore some of the problems of large scale agriculture and increasingly empty produce being sold as fresh.
BUT we cannot underestimate the toll of food deserts in our modern cities and the absence of interactions with nature that contributes to the astronomical explosion of health care costs. Urbafresh is dedicated to providing you with fresh and live sources of nutrition that are available anywhere and anytime. By growing your own sources of nutrition, you provide the body with building blocks and sources of tools that it can use to bring healing and wellness through nutrients that are mostly missing in our modern foods.
Nutrients degrade as soon as harvesting occurs. Rather than consuming a leafy green that has come from thousands of miles away, you can harvest your own at the table. Microgreens can contain 4-40 times the nutrition of the corresponding mature produce so you not only get the freshest but just "a Little Goes a Long Way"! By growing your own nutrients and nurturing your crops you are reconnecting with nature and your food.
We have chosen to bring unique and potent offerings for you to grow and consume. Our seeds and growing media are carefully screened and are all Non GMO, eco friendly and food safe. Look for potent crops that you can only find here!
