At Westland Orchids, Inc. we have 12 acres devoted to our specialized orchids which we grow sustainably, using Hydroponic methods. By using solar to maintain greenhouse temperatures and collecting and reusing water that runs off the crops, we have essentially zero environmental impact on the land.
- Passive heating, cooling and water heating systems that circulate throughout the growing zones in the greenhouses reduce energy use.
- By growing hydroponically we preserve the soil structure instead of tilling the soil.
- Rainwater is channeled off of our greenhouse structure to avoid water runoff and soil erosion.
