Co-founder Electra Jarvis was one of the first Square Roots Entrepreneurs in their 2016 pilot program. She was the first and only to successfully establish a vertical farming company in the first year. Running her Freight Farm business, Green Food Solutions, gave her an edge and expertise in the operations of a freight farm and the farm hand technology. She now uses this knowledge and experience to train others via her unique training programs and maintenance service packages in successful vertical farming businesses of their own.
If you think it’s a great idea, like we do, to have a farm inside or on the roof of the building you live in, we are your partners in making it happen. We have short, informative presentations we deliver to boards, building and property management companies on your behalf.
