Our First Harvest!
We are extremely happy to announce that after finishing construction in November, we have now had our first harvest! To the left you will see Horticultural Manager Abdi-Hakiim proudly displaying fresh lettuce, tomato and cucumber grown on our site using only sunshine and seawater.
