Over the last decade, pioneering urban agriculture company Plantagon has been exploring ways to grow food on a large scale in towns and cities, and developed a highly innovative building-integrated greenhouse concept.

In March 2016, the Swedish company got the opportunity to use a 350 m² basement space, right next to their headquarters, downtown Stockholm. They needed a modular solution to make the most of this challenging space and reached out to REFARMERS for a ZipFarmTM. The farm, Plantagon’s first operation, started growing in Summer 2018.
