We operate an urban farm located in Atlantic Beach, Florida and grow in a climate-controlled, pristine greenhouse, 365 days a year. We use aeroponic technology to produce a large volume of food in a small amount of space and teach individuals and community organizations how they too can grow their own food right where they live and operate.
