e3garden is an urban farm that specializes in growing fresh “live” lettuces, greens, herbs, microgreens, and seedlings 365 days a year.
Why e3garden’s Greens are Awesome
Fresh and Nutritious
We only grow varieties of lettuce, herbs and greens that have the highest nutritional value. All of our plants are sold “live” with the roots on, thus ensuring freshness. You can even re-plant our produce. We grow 365 days a year!
e3garden focuses exclusively on local Philadelphia area markets. All of e3garden’s lettuces, herbs and greens are produced and distributed in the region in which the produce is grown. 90% of the time our produce is sold within a 10 mile radius!
Pesticide Free and Vegan Certified
e3garden uses only organic non-GMO seed and matures its plants under controlled conditions using hydroponic production methods while using no herbicides or pesticides. Our produce is Vegan Certified by the AVA.
As part of its business model, e3garden is committed to the efficient use of energy for heating/cooling and lighting to maintain a low carbon footprint. We use only 10% of the water required by open field farms, and there is no run-off to pollute our rivers. Our farm is powered by Solar Energy!
We appeal to customers who value sustainability, locality, food quality, health and wellness.
e3garden grows food year-round using sunlight, natural methods and the latest technologies to save energy, water, and minimize impact to the environment.
