Aggressively Organic relief packages helping Puerto Rico regrow

Nearly 3 months after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, which left the U.S territory with minimal resources, limited communication, and most of the island without electricity, citizens still struggle to find their “new normal” in a place with so little. 

Although great efforts are underway to remedy the catastrophic destruction, eighty percent of the U.S. territory's crop value was decimated by the storm, which means one thing: Puerto Rico still needs food… and Aggressively Organic has been doing their part.
Aggressively Organic has partnered with Crowdfunding site Humanity Project to deliver relief packages to Puerto Rico so that individuals, agencies and relief groups can use Aggressively Organic Micro Growth Systems immediately to start growing phytonutrient rich food. 

Vegetables and herbs grown in Aggressively Organic Micro Growth Systems would be available for harvest as soon as 21 days without building out any additional electrical, water, or other resources.
