US: Living herb greenhouses to expand in California

Rocket Farms, a grower of indoor flowers, fresh-cut herbs, and potted edibles, is announcing Phase 1 construction of their facility expansion in Half Moon Bay, CA. The company is currently rebuilding 128,000 square feet of existing space and implementing a new living herbs greenhouse. "We aim to grow better plants with greater efficiency and will continue to pride itself on the ability to innovatively grow and ship products around the country.

Through Phase 1, Rocket Farms is implementing new water retention and recapture system to maximize water conservation as well as installing LED lights that will result in 48% energy savings. "By using customized automation equipment, can produce consistent quality at scale," the Rocket Farms teams says.

2.000 new growing tables
With a reconfiguration of space, the expansion also allows for the installation of 2,000 new growing tables. Rocket Farms will dedicate the space to the greater capacity of production and testing more edible products.

"Additionally, with our dedication to our community in conjunction with the environment, we will have more room to train employees and create a positive and enriching work experience for all," they say. 

"Constantly innovating, we are always finding new ways to reduce their environmental footprint left by our facilities", they say, such as converting greenhouses into efficient bottom heat, with heat curtains installed to save energy, and reusing leftover materials to rebuild greenhouse and other mechanisms for production.

Phase 2 for the expansion is currently being planned.
