FarmTECH

FarmTECH is a program which believes: a school district can grow its own produce using environmentally friendly and sustainable practices, educating our students about the future of farming, and working within the community to celebrate local produce. 

 

Our 2 Freight Farms currently produce all of our district spring mix lettuce used at all schools.  These 40ft shipping containers feature a vertical hydroponic grow system.  They use less than 5 gallons of water per day growing the equivalent of 2.5 acres of spring mix.  We produce 400lbs+ of spring mix weekly.  The cloud based system allow us to control the lights, humidity, air circulation, temperature, and nutrient dosing from anywhere.  Want to know more?  Check out our case study.
