The objective of this program is 
to enable participants to own and operate 
a long-term sustainable, profitable new business.

Growing microgreens 
and other produce indoors
is the business.

There is significant market demand for 
locally-grown fresh produce
Farm to Fork.
Farm to Table.
Farm to School.

every part of the country has seasons
and locally-grown fresh produce
is typically not available 
So, we farm inside buildings.
We create the season
 and control the conditions. 
Locally-grown fresh produce is then available
within a few miles of where it will be consumed.

We use a growing system that combines 
technologies in a new and innovative way.
The grow system we developed is
environmentally sound,
uses minimal water and electricity,
and avoids the high costs of hydroponics, 
greenhouses, and typical grow lamps.
100% natural compost.
No municipal water discharge.
No chemicals.
No pesticides.

We proved out our technology 
for three full years
in an unused city-owned building
that had been vacant for 14 years.

The program is open to everyone
but with a focus on Veterans.
Because we owe Veterans...everything.
And many Veterans want to own their own business.
And Veterans make great farmers.

Old, unused buildings
can be ideal grow centers.
