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.
This week is National Farmers Market Week and the timing couldn’t be better, as we celebrate the local food marketplaces strengthening communities across the US, we’d also like to highlight one incredible project that was launched here in Boston last week after being 10 years in the making. To add to that excitement, our freight farmers, Corner Stalk, are one of the 38 vendors that will be selling at the year-round market!
Locally, we’re seeing the benefits of these new approaches to learning. Two Massachusetts schools are leading the charge: one school operates their own Leafy Green Machine, and another is enabling students to envision, create, and test their vision for creating a more sustainable food system.
We’re going to focus on three topics that the Freight Farms team feels strongly about: food, transportation, and waste. We highlight small choices that we make (and you can too!) in an effort to reduce our footprint. We welcome you to please share different ways that demonstrate how you consume with care!
