      Wow--you are getting really close to meeting your goal. Yay. This is such a worthwhile project in so many respects: job creation for the developmentally disabled, innovation, nutrition. Crossing my fingers!

      Pulling for (and supporting) your project. Revolutionary ideas in this niche are desperately needed throughout the world. If successful, I'm forwarding your info to an orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya.

      I don't mean to be the poor sport here, but as a vertical farming developer myself, how are you going to turn 4,500 square feet of space into 1M (23 acres) square feet of growing space? That would require almost 10 floors with vertical trays spaced at just 12" covering the entire floor space. This would then require artificial lighting which at approximately $1,600 per 32 square feet using LED's would alone cost $50M to equip.

      The basic math doesn't add up.. not even close. I'd imagine at best working with 4,500 square foot you could realize maybe 18,000 to 20,000 square feet which isn't even a single acre, it's half an acre.

      Again, I do aplogize if I'm misunderstanding something here, but as someone who has spent years researching vertical farming and developing my own prototypes, I simply don't see how this project is possible on the scale in which you are suggesting.

      Liked the enthusiasm of the video, the employment model, the innovative technology and the fact that you have already done a huge part of the work. Good luck!

      I am amazed at the brilliant ideas that are popping up on Kickstarter. This is by far a very ambitious and worthwhile project. I would be very interested in getting more details. Looked at the website and was impressed. I look forward to seeing this offering fully funded. What an inspiration.
