Rooftop garden market 超市的屋頂農場

邊看邊答

How does the supermarket make sure it produces sustainable fruit and vegetables?

文字稿

For the freshest, most local produce, look to the skies. This Brussels supermarket literally going green, with its own rooftop garden. The urban farm is producing a range of fruit and veg without the use of pesticides, while cutting distribution costs to zero.

想買最新鮮的、當地的農產品?往天上看。布魯塞爾的這家超市名副其實地“走向綠色”,他們有自己的屋頂花園。這個城市農場種植多種類的果蔬,不使用農藥,同時將配送成本降至零。

Marie Delvaux, sustainability manager
So the products are harvested in the morning at eight o’clock. And an hour later they are in the store. So clients appreciate the freshness of the product. They even tell us that they can keep the products a day or two longer in their fridge. So it’s a very short chain.

瑪麗·德爾沃 可持續發展經理
所有的產品都在早上八點收割。一個小時後這些產品就上了貨架。因此,顧客們對產品的新鮮度表示贊賞。他們甚至告訴我們,這樣一來,他們可以把東西在冰箱里多存放一到兩天。所以這是一個非常短的銷售鏈。

The farm uses filtered rainwater, solar panels and heat recirculated from the store’s cooling systems to produce the most sustainable salads and strawberries possible.

這家農場使用經過過濾的雨水、太陽能板和從商店的冷卻系統中循環的熱量,以生產出最綠色的沙拉和草莓。

But high-rise horticulture does bring its own challenges. The team of gardeners has had to work within tight weight restrictions, while biodiversity on the rooftops isn’t the same as in the fields.

但在高層進行園藝確實有不少挑戰。園丁團隊不得不在嚴格的重量限制下工作,同時屋頂上的生物多樣性也與田間的不一樣。

Nicolas Tytgat, agricultural engineer
There is a danger we could get overwhelmed by pests or diseases, as we can’t rely on the surrounding nature to help. But we’ve tried to create an island of nature to do permaculture, but in a completely urban way.

尼可拉斯·泰特蓋特 農業工程師
有一種危險是我們可能會被害蟲或疾病所淹沒,因為我們不能依靠周圍的自然環境來給我們提供幫助。但我們試圖建造一個充滿自然界物質的獨特空間來做永續生活設計,但運作模式完全城市化。

If the project really gets off the ground, the supermarket chain says other stores could soon see their own rooftop revolution.

如果這個項目真的能大獲成功,這家連鎖超市說其它商店可能很快就會看到他們自己的屋頂大變革。

你知道嗎?

Tech companies around the world are developing robots to pick strawberries. Producers say they need the robots because they can’t find enough human workers to do the job.

世界各地的科技公司都正在開發研製會採摘草莓的機器人。農業生產者說他們需要這類機器人的原因是他們找不到足夠的人力來做這項工作。
