Glenn Behrman, founder of CEA Advisors LLC, Dallas based developers of custom built vertical farms housed in specially designed and engineered recycled shipping containers, announces that they have recently delivered another Food Safety compliant 53’ Growtainer to Doodle Farms at the Food Hall at Legacy West in Plano, Texas.

This custom built Growtainer utilizes a proprietary water conserving hydroponic irrigation system which constantly monitors the quality and nutritional levels of the water being fed to the plants, energy efficient crop specific LED lights, Growracks from CEA Advisors with 48 individual growing levels, a commercial climate and environmental control system and a separate utility area to protect the plants from any insects or temperature fluctuation.

CEA Advisors' recently completed projects include the disruptive Store Grown fresh produce project with the Central Market division of H-E-B, Research Growtainers for Texas A & M Agrilife Research, Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf in Munich, Germany, Pharmaceutical manufacturer Bioiberica in Barcelona, Spain and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.

The Doodle Farms Growtainer, located in the Food Hall “Box Garden” will be used to produce fresh, local gourmet products for the 22 artisanal food stalls offering the freshest, local ingredients and best of food trends prepared by DFW chefs and artisans. Behrman said “We’re proud to be part of a project like this, where each food stall at Legacy Hall presents its own unique personality and chef-driven specialties, coming together to reflect the DFW food scene and offering the best of local food trends and innovations”.
