It holds over 280 fruits, vegetables and herbs in one acre of green space!
In the heart of Tokyo’s business district, a refreshing sight greets corporate employees and passers-by alike. Amidst skyscrapers and bustling people is an office high-rise unique in all respects.
Instead of housing banks of computers, austere conference rooms, and office workers scurrying about the halls, this corporate structure is bursting with green.
At the Urban Farm Pasona Group Headquarters, over 280 types of fruits, vegetables and herbs grow within and sprout from outside of the building’s balconies. The resulting crops are also served in the office cafeteria.
The Pasona Group’s HQ, with its main goal of achieving symbiosis with nature, houses 1,500 employees led by agricultural specialists.
While it is a human resources firm, all of the employees grow their own food, with strong focus on farming, health and the environment.
Housed in a nine storey building, the Pasona Group has dedicated a whole acre to green and growing space.
The building’s temperature is also carefully controlled to ensure optimal crop yields. Despite the absence of sunlight inside the building, the system works exceptionally well enough that employees have consistently produced three rice crops a year.
One advantage of having indoor plants is the absence of pests. Hence, no pesticides are used and all produce is 100 percent organic.
Not surprisingly, after witnessing and taking part in growing the crops, 80 percent of all employees report feeling positive, energized, and motivated.
In addition, the building welcomes visitors to come and see the thriving urban farm. In fact, office workers from other buildings drop by to buy fresh produce and have a glass of fresh juice in the stylish, greenery-infused cafe.
This green corporate headquarters serves to brighten up the usually dull and utilitarian Tokyo business district.
