Plants will very likely be successful in Space, but to truly live sustainably, it is about strengthening the bonds and connections between individuals, to impose a sense of duty and responsibility to each inhabitant of Space settlements, to manage healthcare systems, governments or aid for the collective good of the society and open the system for new ideas. And of course, the duty to protect the environment and those who settle there. So, it is not only about producing edible crops, it’s about having the resources for nurturing subsequent generations. This is the key to sustaining life on other planets. That is why every effort we make on Earth to understand Life and improve the way we globally grow our crops—across big cities and harsh environments—we are one step closer to bringing plants to Space.
As a Community Interest Company a large portion of our work is aimed at bringing more plant science in schools and universities; to teach the importance of agriculture, changing climates and how we can work to minimise our impact on the environment.
