Obsessively designed, Thrive Containers plants grow vertically indoors without soil, getting their nutrition from water and light energy from powerful LEDs. The result is a system that operates independently from land, climate, and season with the power to bring local food production directly to you.

Because Thrive Containers is designed by Growers for Growers, we also understand the nuances of the post growing cycle. This is why we offer additional equipment to fulfill all aspects of the farming operation. From farm containers, cold storage, to support operations, we provide the complete solution.
The Cold Storage container is designed to support the farming lifecycle. A 40’ refrigerated container to hold all freshly harvested leafy greens. Our Cold Storage containers include remote monitoring capabilities, alarms and alerts, and maintain food and worker safety standards. Built to align seamlessly with our farm containers.
We’ve converted a standard 40’ shipping container into a one stop facility for additional packaging space, seeding, sanitizing, climate controlled storage and additional support operations. Built to align seamlessly with our farm containers.
DRY STORAGE &
In need of additional climate control, dry storage space, and restroom facilities for staff? We’ve converted a standard 40’ shipping container into a shared dry storage space with ADA compliant unisex restroom facilities for onsite staff. Built to align seamlessly with our farm containers.

NURSERY PROPAGATION STATION
Fully integrated into each farm container, the Nursery Propagation Station delivers independently controlled lighting recipes and water cycles in a flood and drain style delivery system. Fitting up to 24 standard 1020 trays, it creates the flexibility to stagger harvests by Cultivation Area zones or seed for a monthly, whole farm harvest. There are no separate nursery reservoirs, pumps or water sensors to manage, thereby simplifying operations and reducing maintenance costs.
The Cultivation Area utilizes a custom designed water supply and return system that provides flexibility to the number growing channels per row, thereby optimizing both number of plants sites and the required airflow distribution for healthy plant development, which differs across plant varieties. Lighting recipes are independently controlled across five zones by a custom GrowLink control panel. A custom designed racking system enable six levels of canopy space per zone, maximizing canopy height and square footage while maintaining a 100% gravity fed system with fewer moving parts and pieces, further reducing operational costs.
Based on a custom water supply and return system, the Irrigation System is designed around a single, continuous duty cycle aquaculture pump, rated for lower pH and higher nutrients levels, plus a handful of control system driven and manually controlled valves. Each rows’ supply and return manifolds are modularly built, essentially “plug and play,” enabling easy removal for maintenance activities and replacements. Flow rate is controllable at the zone and row level as well as a main supply line pressure valve, which returns to the reservoir, providing additional aerating oxygen to the water, which is critical for optimal plant growth.
5-ton Bard systems with independent circuits for dehumidification and commercial room ventilation are managed by our GrowLink control system and panel with a backup thermostat for control system failure redundancy. Control system integrated Bard system alarms are used to alert users ahead of potential more catastrophic failures. A custom designed airflow distribution system consists of corrosion resistant row fans and strategically mounted air movers along the ceiling and floor (under each Cultivation Area zone) to evenly distribute the ideal air to each row and aid in transpiration load management efficiency. A control system operated CO2 regulator solenoid delivers life thriving CO2 across the ceiling to be evenly spread by the airflow distribution system.
Years of R&D trialing horticultural LEDs from various global and US based companies, lead us to selecting lighting partners that maximize photosynthetic output while minimizing electrical inputs. Scientifically designed light spectrums and applied light recipes are optimized to deliver increased yield and improved color, taste, texture and nutritional value as compared to traditionally grown plants. Automated simulation of sunrise and sunset and light intensity (dimming) throughout a single growth cycle is on the 2021 roadmap.
RESERVOIR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Reservoir water health is managed by our custom GrowLink control system, which monitors water level, temperature, pH and nutrients levels (PPM/EC) using industrial (not lab) grade sensors. EC and pH sensors only require an annual calibration which takes less a minute to perform with a 3-year manufacturer warranty. No more monthly calibrations or replacing sensors every 12 months. Nutrients, supplements, and pH adjusting additives inject into a recirculating line where the water is chilled and dosed by industrial rated water chillers and sediment filtering dosing pumps. No more recurring clogged dosing lines or constant detailing of dosing pump components. Control system operated Flush and Fill valves provide added automation of scheduled or sensor triggered reservoir fill and flush processes.
ELECTRICAL + SAFETY STANDARDS
Safety is always at the forefront of our engineering team’s focus. CO2 and smoke levels are monitored by GrowLink and Business Rules trigger ventilation, electronic alerts and audible alarms inside the farm should smoke be detected or CO2 levels rise above OSHA defined maximums. Standard fire and smoke alarms, lighted emergency exit signs, and wall-mounted fire extinguishers are always included in our design/build. All electrical components are installed to national electrical standards.
Integrated ladder and harvest/transplant platform systems minimize the frequency an operator needs to go up and down a ladder to reach the top 3 levels, reducing accident opportunities. Removeable harvest/ transplant platforms for working on the upper levels further increase the speed of harvest and reduce the ladder up and down frequency.
