We explore the technological advancements that transformed agriculture over the past 300 years and made it possible for over seven billion people to populate our planet! From the creation to antibiotics, to the home refrigerator, we see what the agriculture industry did right, what it did wrong, and how modern technology is working on sustainable agricultural solutions.
Can modern container farming technology reduce island dependence on imported food? We believe it can! First, however, we need to be able to understand the problem at hand: a lack of local, on-island food production due to space, climate, and weather restrictions.

The Leafy Green Machine is perfectly poised to alleviate many of these issues and re-invigorate local farming.
