PowerGrow and ACTS Freedom Farms have signed a Letter of Intent to develop renewable powered, high-tech greenhouses that will employ Veterans who have exited our Armed Forces. ACTS Freedom Farms will own and operate the farms with local Veteran Owner/Operators.
The master planned facilities will provide over 120 permanent, high-skilled, high-paying jobs for the Veterans. Ultimately each site will expand to over 25 acres of renewable powered, high-tech glass greenhouses.
PowerGrow has already established a partnership with the University of Arizona's Controlled Environment Agriculture Center; who will provide a complete education curriculum to help the Veterans rapidly learn how to grow produce indoors.ACTS Freedom Farms will provide a Master Grower that is extensive high-tech glass greenhouse growing experience, for each facility.
