Cafe in Nipton installs organic farming!
Mark Olson, Sun State Organics (www.sunstateorganics.com) has installed the latest technology for vertical growing outside the Oasis Cafe in Nipton, California. The cafe serves fresh home-style Mexican food and will use the organic vegtables and herbs in their home-made dishes. 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.
