There are three blogs hosted by 500 Foods, each intended to foster community involvement and discussion around their respective topics.
Better Than Organic Blog - www.betterthanorganic.ca
This blog is focused on exploring alternative forms of modern precision agriculture and the benefits at the consumer level. In particular, how these alternatives might be better than the organic methods so often being promoted today. The intended audience includes just generally those interested in where their produce comes from and the many variations in methods around how produce is grown.
Container Culture Blog - www.containerculture.ca
Various forms of horticulture have become very popular, particularly during our lifetimes. Hydroponic systems are now commonplace. Aquaculture is certainly a system that's going to be with us for awhile. ContainerCulture is a term that we've coined generally meaning "growing plants inside of shipping containers." This blog explores some of the rationale behind why anyone would want to do that, and why we think it is such a fantastic idea. The intended audinece includes growers and anyone interested in the more technical side of precision agriculture, those involved in vertical farming, or anyone wanting to learn more about how this technology is evolving.
500 Foods Blog - www.500foods.com/blog
A blog about our company and the various things going on. As a startup, we're new to many things. As a startup with some industry veterans in the greenhouse space, we're also not new to many things! This blog will be focused on more corporate things, open positions, investor tidbits, things of that nature. The intended audience is anyone interested in our particular journey.
