About the Webinar

Freight Farms team member Rebecca Shamritsky talks with Thomas Smitherman and Aaron Dreilinger of Hammock Greens about how two restaurant industry veterans found themselves running a six-unit urban farming operation in Miami.

They discuss everything: how they determined their 15-variety Growhouse Mix, how they use farming to bolster underserved Miami communities, and how they were able to grow quickly in just two years.
