A proprietary grow system, sensors, and automated computer controls create the ideal environment, delivering the precise amount of light, nutrients, constant temperature, and humidity. Isham is a service-disabled veteran of the U.S. Army and an alumnus of the Veterans to Farmers controlled environment agriculture program in Colorado. He intends to train fellow veterans here and offer opportunities in horticulture. Kelly has 35 years of technical experience and developed the vertical farming system over the last two years.
