Planted Detroit:

Takeing farming to new levels in Detroit

At Planted Detroit, technology and farming are believed to be a perfect match. Bringing these two worlds together to sustainably grow tastier, healthier, and more accessible greens is what Planted Detroit sees as the future of Detroit agriculture.

Through their innovation, Planted Detroit harvests every day, package mixes, micros, and ready-to-eat salads to order, and are delivered right to people’s doors. All of their products are sold no more than 6 days from harvest. This helps reduce food insecurity in the community. Planted Detroit also donates all of the leftovers, making every green donated even fresher than ones purchased in stores.

One of the biggest parts of their innovation at Planted Detroit is vertical farming. Vertical farming is when plants are grown up instead of out. This allows them to grow food just 3 miles from downtown Detroit. with limited space in the city, vertical farming is an innovation that has made a significant impact in the agricultural community of Detroit. The other innovation is biosecurity. Shoes off, full-body suit, hairnet, boots and mask on, insert hands into the automatic hand-washer, put on gloves. This process is one everyone goes through who enters Planted Detroit’s facility. Creating a controlled environment helps keep human contact and pathogens out of the growing process.
