The Science of Nature

Iceland is a country of challenging extremes which requires Icelanders to be persistent and adaptable. Iceland’s stunning landscape – glaciers, lava fields and volcanoes – combined with harsh dark winters, make it difficult to grow plants. But luckily it is also extremely geothermally active and that has enabled us to grow plants all year round in greenhouses powered by sustainable geothermal energy.

Nestled in the lava fields of Reykjanes Peninsula, our 2,000 m2 ecologically-engineered greenhouse can nurture up to 130.000 barely plants at a time. They are our remarkable source of EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) and grown in abundant, inert volcanic pumice, using pure Icelandic water enriched with nutrients.
