SIEM REAP, Cambodia – June 19, 2015 – Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Here, where rice is the main agriculture, vegetables are in huge demand. Most of the vegetables in Cambodia are imported from either Thailand or Vietnam and many of these vegetables are of questionable quality.
So, SmartFarming Cambodia is a solution that wishes to bridge the gap between supply and demand with a hydroponic farming operations. This will contribute to Cambodia’s self-sufficiency in domestic vegetable food production. Not to mention this will benefit the community through training, education, and jobs for local workers.
The farm – once construction is finished – will grow vegetables organically primarily for the local market demand and supply Cambodia with healthy vegetables. This should also help eliminating the poor reputation of many Asian grown vegetables and herbs, which sometimes contain high levels of chemicals and/or dangerous pathogens. SmartFarming Cambodia will implement a healthy soilless production process without, or an absolute minimum use of pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. However, before SmartFarming Cambodia can bring this idea to fruition, they need help. That’s why they started an IndieGoGo campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $50,000 by August 16, 2015, and funds will primarily go toward solar panels to generate clean energy, along with a water treatment system since hydroponics need high-quality water.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to help this incredible cause that can supply one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia with fresh, healthy vegetables.
