Small-Footprint Indoor Farming

In 2016 we renovated a warehouse in our Seattle neighborhood, and built Plantworks. We are committed to an urban micro farm model and believe strongly in locally-owned, small-scale urban manufacturing. 

Proudly Grower-Owned and Operated, we are a Worker-Owned Urban Micro Farm

 

We carry with us the lessons from years of working the “blueprint” for other people. The traditional mistakes of the past are gone— no more heavy energy consumption, overzealous nutrient saturation, heavy-handed pesticide use, or thoughtless landfill waste stream. 

Plantworks is an EnviroStars-recognized Indoor Urban Farm. We are recognized for our clean inputs; low water usage; nutrient recapture; resource use reduction; waste-stream diversion; composting, reusable packaging; and for buying locally.

Sustainability practices​
 

  • We are an all-LED facility, and farm-wide we use Forever Green Indoors (FGI) lighting. We were an early adopter of the FGI square grow light for vegetative plants, and we run FGI Lightpanel 500s exclusively in our flower rooms.

  • All of our plants are grown in 100% compostable, inert substrate. This reduces the potential for plant disease and pests from living soil and allows fine-tuned precision with our custom, all-natural plant feed recipes. 

  • As part of our commitment to sustainable urban farming, we do not use supplemental CO2 in our grow rooms. Our recirculated, filtered air exchange keeps our micro-batch flower rooms at a steady level of ambient CO2.

Community partners

We are Urban Makers. In 2019 we became the first cannabis industry member of Seattle Made, a collective of locally-owned manufacturers producing goods within the city limits.

Plantworks is proudly a member of the Seattle Good Business Network, keeping true to our pledge to buy, produce and reinvest locally.
