US: Garden Fresh Farms wins National Sustainability Award
“Congratulations to the 2013 winners and finalists, which represent the best in early-stage cleantech innovation and viable solutions to some of the world’s toughest challenges,” Rex Northen, executive director of the Cleantech Open, said in a statement.
Garden Fresh Farms was founded by entrepreneur Dave Roeser. The company is working to grow a network of inner-city, indoor hydroponic farms.
The Cleantech Open grand prize went to PowWow Energy, a California company that’s developed technology that can quickly detect water leaks on farms. These leads can destroy an entire crop, causing thousands of dollars of damage.
