Students plant the seeds into coconut husks (no soil needed!) About 80% of seeds turn into seedlings.

Seedlings get transferred into vertical rows. The technology within the farm provides the water, light and nutrients for the seedlings to thrive!

Harvest

Once the plants are big enough, it's time to harvest! The greens are plucked and separated - no need to wash! The farm is fully organic and there's no harmful pesticides to rinse off!

ABOUT THE FARM Classrooms

The farms we place at schools are contained inside of converted shipping containers incorporating state-of-the-art technology, systems, and design. These efficient farms of the future utilize vertical, hydroponic grow towers which are harvested year-round, producing the equivalent of a two-acre traditional farm. Once established, the farm systems including watering, nutrient infusion, and grow lights can be operated from a computer or phone app controlling all aspects of the environment including temperature and humidity. A wide variety of vegetables can be produced inside these units including leafy greens, root vegetables, herbs, and even berries and flowers. All of the food is grown free from herbicides or pesticides and never absorbs contaminants often found in the air, water, and soil. These hyperorganic, nutrient-dense foods are easy to harvest and distribute through cafeterias, classrooms, food pantries, farmer’s markets, and more!

Student Involvement

Not only are the Agriculture students learning the about high tech hydroponic farming, other classrooms can gain valuable knowledge as well!

Salad Bar Savings

The lettuce is grown by the students, and eaten by the students! The school can save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on cafeteria costs.

We are committed to improving the health, knowledge, and habits of communities, organizations, schools, and families. Don’t miss out on your chance to get involved with the future of food and nutrition education.
