Join the Center for Real Estate Entrepreneurship for an on-site case study tour featuring the firm Beanstalk which is building the farm of the future by refurbishing commercial buildings with indoor vertical gardens. Their newest urban vertical farm repurposes a long-vacant and obsolete data center in Herndon with a fully automated indoor farm. Co-founders Mike and Jack Ross will talk about their venture and vision for sustainable farming. Growing salad greens, herbs, and mushrooms, this vertical indoor farm doesn’t need pesticides, is not limited to growing seasons, and helps the environment by recycling water and reducing carbon emissions with a growing system that is 100x more productive.
