Farm & Kitchen restructuring
Currently we are working to secure a certified kitchen, and to reinvigorate our urban agriculture consist of raised bed urban farming. The FFF is working to activate our shipping container farm that will use next-generation indoor agriculture techniques to grow the equivalent yield of five acres of conventional outdoor farming each year. The process uses 80 percent less water with no harmful run-off and prevents exposure to pests and diseases.
This process, called "Controlled Environment Agriculture," allows us to grow 365 days per year by taking the same plants that grow outside and putting them in perfect growing conditions.
