NEWS: The cafe is now using the latest technology for vertical growing. Peppers, basil, tomatoes, cucumbers are just some of the food planted. This vertical growing system grows more food in less space using 90% less energy, water and labor. This is very exciting and cutting edge. This type of organic farming fits into Nipton's overall plan of self-sustainability and being energy efficient.
