Sustainable Food


A portion of revenue funds research focused on sustainable food production methods.

Developing alternatives to traditional farming methods will increase our nation's food security. Making sure we all have access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food!

No Waste 


We grow duckweed in vertical modular towers! No pesticides are used! Fertilizer can be recaptured preventing runoff! Our tower materials are recyclable and our product packaging is compostable!
