The first of these is a state-of-the-art, three-story hydroponic farm in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Vertical Harvest Jackson Hole, in collaboration with nonprofit CULTIVATE,  provides inclusive, competitive employment to people with different abilities.

Vertical Harvest is an impact driven business that provides inclusive employment for people with different abilities by growing local food for communities via vertical greenhouses adapted to work in diverse urban contexts. 

Vertical Harvest’s focus is to create partnerships to build cost effective, profitable hydroponic farms that will not only act as innovative urban models for growing fresh food, but will have a substantial social impact.

 

THE CHALLENGE

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that by 2050 the human population will increase by 3 billion people demanding a 70% increase in agricultural production. Globally, over 80% of arable land is in use.

At the same time, food deserts, where affordable and healthy food is difficult to obtain, are becoming more common in urban neighborhoods. Hydroponic agriculture uses a fraction of the water and energy of

field agriculture.

Vertical farming is an industry that can work to supplement traditional agriculture by developing controlled indoor growing environments that save space, water and energy use. 

THE BENEFITS OF VERTICAL AGRICULTURE

TRADITIONAL AGRICULTURE

80% ARABLE LAND ALREADY IN USE

FOOD MILES
