Make a difference

 

The Leafy Green Machine™ brings sustainability and transparency to the food system. The use of hydroponics allows the farms to use 90% less water than traditional farming methods. Additionally, by bringing food production to the end consumer, the impact of food transportation is drastically reduced.

The crops grown in the Leafy Green Machine™ are consistent in quality and freshness. The container's closed environment keeps unwanted organisms out, eliminating the need for any herbicides or pesticides. Protection from the outside environment means that 94% of crops are of marketable quality. Most importantly, hydroponic plants are crisp, flavorful, and available year round.
