Two local farms team up to bring organic farming to high schools

PITTSBURG, Ks. – Leafy Green Farms and Community Green Farms are joining together to bring vertical hydroponic farms to 10 high schools to Southeast Kansas.

“We hope that by working through the schools we can help achieve our goal of moving the nutritional needle and fulfill the objective that access to quality food should not be dictated by income levels,” said the two in a joint statement.

Each vertical farm can grow up to two acres of produce a year, giving the schools and surrounding communities fresh produce throughout the year.
