their own food through a simple and effective indoor growing system. By bringing
indoor farming solution systems to remote communities with extreme climates, fresh
food will be more accessible and closer to them.

This growing system allows farmers to grow nutrient-dense crops without using too much water, pesticides, and soil. It also lets growers cultivate plants and vegetables in a controlled environment and with a less labor-intensive farming technique. The Harvest Wall is integrated with modern technology that makes irrigation of the plants automatic.
