Those of you on the email list know we got to the semifinals of a pitch competition earlier this year. For the first time, here’s the Rosemont Horticultural promo we put together to get there.
A lot of people ask me for recommendations for good places to start learning about vertical farming. Well, a bunch of industry leaders got together to put on this digital summit and I think it just might be the answer.

That world is still stuck in the old paradigm of thoughtless consumerism. The original definition of consumer is “one who destroys, or expends by use; devours, spends wastefully.” We would need 7 more planet Earths if everyone consumed at the rate of an average American.
