AeroFarms Community Farm Program
Tuesday, April 25, 12:00-2:00 PM
St. Louis has been chosen by AeroFarms as the site for its next new commercial farm and is hoping to partner with a number of local schools for the Community Farm initiative. ISSL Schools (all grades) have the exciting opportunity to participate in an important new program:
AeroFarms, a Certified B Corporation and leader in indoor vertical farming, is expanding its Community Farm program to bring year-round access to fresh and nutritious leafy greens to local settings such as schools, community centers and corporate cafeterias.
The AeroFarms Community Farm uses patented and proprietary aeroponic technology to bring the benefits of vertical farming directly to the community. The custom-built system empowers children and adults to participate in the full growing process from seed to salad, while experiencing the advantages of hyperlocal, sustainable food production and learning through science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) education.
Dennis Lower, former CEO of Cortex, and Jason Ginsberg, AeroFarm's Chief of Staff and Director of the Community Farming Initiative, will be leading the presentation and answering your questions.
