The U.S. is currently experiencing a farming revolution. Controlled Environment Agriculture has been on the upswing in general, particularly because of severe weather patterns such as excessive, or under supply of water. New technology is advancing agriculture and vertical hydroponic farming may be in the infancy stage, nonetheless it is beginning to relieve the food shortage and provide for the global demand, and provide for healthy and locally grown food, year-round.
Due to the immense humanitarian impact of these new technologies, the Freedom Foundation intends to participate in this agricultural renaissance, especially with regard to hydroponics and vertical farming techniques through attracting new persons desiring to become “Advanced High Tech Agricultural Specialists”. The Foundation believes this emerging industry of growing food in environmentally controlled facilities, where pests, diseases, light, temperature, and humidity can be highly controlled, is the future of farming both in the USA and globally.
