Who is Jaime? Think modern farmer + yogi + scientist + holistic healer all rolled into one. Her passion for farming and love of Boston led her to work at Freight Farms, where she gets the best of both worlds. She works in our Leafy Green Machine at FFHQ collecting data and experimenting with new crops and growing techniques. On top of that, she gets us all a little healthier by sharing her knowledge of herbalism and the beneficial properties of plants...she’s kind of like our resident hippie. With the nickname Dirt Worshiper in college, it’s pretty cool that she’s now a hydroponic farmer. To get to know her even better, we asked Jaime to answer a few questions:
We believe everyone should have access to healthy food, especially children. Today, the Freight Farms team joined the #PAPuckerFace Challenge along with Produce Alliance to raise awareness around the issue of childhood hunger, and we challenge you to do the same!
With so many new farmers signed on this summer, we've SOLD OUT of the LGM Base model for the year. From now until the end of 2015 we only have the LGM Premium model available for purchase.
It’s OFFICIAL: Freight Farms goes to college...Stony Brook University to be specific!
We’re thrilled to finally announce the first university campus to integrate the Leafy Green Machine into their dining operations. Stony Brook University, located in New York, is already a leader in sustainability, but recently decided to take things a step further and begin growing food directly next to their dining hall.
