Orticale is a vertical garden that thanks to an optional parallel rotation, allows an equal distribution of light and water in a reduced space. It is adaptable to the needs of logistics, with the constant of reducing the space occupied up to one third of the arable land.
You can obtain a multitude of products that have foliage no more than 40 cm, such as carrots, fennel, herbs.
Thanks to its deep adaptability not only you can choose the size and the consequent use of destinations (home, industrial), but also different models: manual, electric, with a low power and adjustable by a timer, and photovoltaics.
This allows Orticale to be an ideal solution not only for the recovery of spaces, for example in highly polluted areas, but also for the possible involvement of subjects forced to wheelchair who can be an active part of the cultivation of their gardens or in dedicated gardens, adapting the work area to their specific needs.
The distinctive detail is, however, the use of recycled materials in the construction of the vertical farm. Therefore, we use innocent tubes, boxes of fruit and vegetables, old timber for the realization of the manual model, and also bicycle wheels and transmission belts of trucks along with sheet metal support, for the electric model.
