GP Solutions (OTC: GWPD) is developing scalable farming systems for soil-less indoor organic farming. The company’s GrowPods are automated micro-farms that use hydroponic technology and unique soil systems to cultivate the highest-quality specialty leaf crops. The system is designed and engineered for ease of use, allowing users to farm year-round in any location of the world, supporting the company’s mission to provide customers with the ability to cultivate their own organic “superfoods.”
GrowPod Design & Function
GrowPod is a modular, stackable and mobile vertical growing environment specifically engineered to maximize yield and automation. GrowPods are available as a vertical pod, stacker pod or custom-built pod.
The Stacker Pod is a certified organic soil system that offers growers multiple levels of planting in order to maximize space and produce options with different fruits and vegetables. The Vertical Pod utilizes a vertical hydroponic system. It is affordable, scalable, efficient, automated and sustainable. The output provides customers with fresh and clean produce year-round in any climate. The Custom Pod is built to suit the farmer’s specific crop and grow goals.
Each 320-square-foot GrowPod container will have an annual production capability of up to four times that of outdoor growing methods, dramatically increasing profitability to the grower. The controlled environment of the GrowPod ensures efficient power and water usage in growing a wide range of horticultural and agricultural products in all environments and climates.
Thanks to a combination of hydroponic and certified organic soil systems, crop yields are higher, faster, and more consistent that conventional means. Customers can enjoy an average of eight higher yield crop cycles anywhere in the world.

GrowPods allow cultivation to take place year-round, which maximizes ROI. The systems are sealed from outside pathogens, contaminants, pesticides, and the result is clean and robust crop production.
GP Solutions also has a line of remarkable new proprietary soil mixtures and nutrient lines which contain no animal products. These products are vital, as many other soils and additives can contain harmful pathogens and contaminants that can cause crops to become tainted or fail rigorous testing.
GP Solutions has partnered with the world’s leading food nonprofit companies, including Feeding America, Seeds of Hope, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels America, L.A. Kitchen, and Farm Bread, to help insecure communities take control of their own food dependence using container farms.
