As Boot Camp Farms is about to commence construction of its 80,000 sq. ft hydroponic greenhouse in Bridgeport, CT, the Company continues to add strength to its management team. Felipe M. Floresca, who served in the Obama administration as Director of Public Engagement, Office of the Secretary for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) and the Clinton administration as Chief of Staff for Policy at the U.S. Department of Labor and Senior Advisor at HUD, has joined Boot Camp Farms as its Senior Policy Advisor, as well as serving on the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force at HUD.

Mr. Floresca is also the Senior Policy Advisor for Emerald Cities Collaborative based in Washington, D.C. (, a national non-profit collective of organizations working together to advance a sustainable environment while creating economic opportunities for all. Emerald Cities local and national partners bring resources and expertise from the community, labor, business and government sectors. Boot Camp Farms is honoured to be working with Mr. Floresca, who said "The urban farming movement represents a viable way to promote horticulture and community resilience; especially in low-income communities. For communities across the nation, it fosters "the greening of America" and provides healthy food choices for wellness and addresses "food deserts" found in our inner-cities."

Antonio St. Lorenzo, CEO of Boot Camp Farms says, “Felipe is a tremendous addition to our team. He brings decades of experience of governmental policy on sustainability and working with less fortunate communities as well as longstanding relationships with the private sector and non-profit worlds of sustainable development.”
