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.
