The 21st century is an age of exploration. We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible, both in terms of space travel and in terms of the technologies we use to sustain life here on Earth. 

Space technology and controlled environment horticulture are two of the most important areas of research and development for the future of our planet. As the world population grows and the demand for food increases, it is essential that we find more efficient ways to produce food. Controlled environment horticulture is a method of growing plants in a controlled environment, using techniques such as hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. This method of agriculture is more efficient and sustainable than traditional methods, and it requires less land and water.

SyNRGE, LLC is a consulting company that specializes in space technology and controlled environment agriculture. We work with clients all over the world to help them develop more efficient and sustainable methods of food production.
