Innovation to fix the Innovation

@ VOL 6 ON OCT 30, 2018

Fork Farms (Gil Shaw) believes that growing your own food promotes healthy eating habits and a close connection to the living world around us. Children, particularly in urban areas, often don’t have the space or time to learn to grow food outdoors. Our grow machine, placed in schools, gives children the opportunity to learn about agriculture, and at the same time, the machines provide nutritious food to encourage healthy eating habits that pay a lifetime of benefits
