BONUS: Why Vertical Farming is The Change We Need
By Joe Sweeny
“A new kind of farm for a new kind of world” – that’s the promise of Plenty, and the world’s first, high capacity, indoor vertical farm.
When growing crops is a battle for so many communities around the world, Plenty is on a mission to bring healthy, pesticide-free leafy greens to all. And with that food come jobs, training, and innovation.
On this bonus episode, Joe talks to Nate about raising nearly a billion dollars in venture capital, his role as Founder and Chief Science Officer, and how Plenty has the opportunity to radically transform the way we grow food.
You’ll also hear why Jeff Bezos and Masayoshi Son of SoftBank are investors, and how food justice equates to social justice.
