About this project

Imagine if you could help pioneer a “green”, local and natural business. A business that found new uses for old warehouses, created jobs and improved access to healthy food.

Started two years ago by a team of experts, entrepreneurs  and corporate executives, we developed equipment and methods for sustainable agriculture. Garden Fresh Farms is a local urban farm and a manufacturer of proprietary growing systems that could be deployed around the world.

Inside an Orbiting Garden
Inside an Orbiting Garden

Our indoor warehouse systems use artificial light and are immune to droughts and other weather conditions effecting traditional agriculture. Our methods are financially sustainable and solve the problems usually created by traditional agriculture.

 We pioneered growing produce in a dense and efficient manner. Our growing systems use land 100 times more efficiently than traditional farming. This allows for indoor growing year round with less water, less energy, reduced waste and low transportation costs.

Your pledge will enable us to get the orbiting garden production ready and manufacture the final version that we will be able to duplicate inexpensively and assemble anywhere in the world, hopefully somewhere close to you!

This is your chance to make an impact on the way people in cities feed themselves, and reduce our cities dependence on  importing food. Your Pledge will go towards the manufacturing equipment, materials, parts, final plan reviews, and all the small little things that go into finalizing this amazing piece of equipment that will enable us to make the first production model world ready!

Apple didn’t invent the MP3 player, the LCD screen, thin batteries, or the internet, but they pulled all those technologies together in a way that worked together like never before.

We developed the equipment and methods for sustainable urban farming in a way that works together like never before. Now we need your help to make the final push to put an Orbiting Garden in your neighborhood, no matter where you live.
