We interview Kerry Kakazu, a plant scientist in Honolulu, who started Hawaii's first vertical farm called MetroGrow Hawaii. They produce specialty crops, like herbs, corn shoots, butter lettuce, and an extra-salty ice plant, using hydroponics and aeroponics. Learn why chefs and customers love their products so much that they're expanding to a larger location (where they will sell food to the public too!) Hear some of the challenges and rewards of building a vertical farm on Oahu. For more fun and food-related content, check out our site at www.evolve.ag.
Will we soon look back and laugh about the days when we used to get milk from a cow? The answer is a resounding "yes" if TurtleTree Labs has anything to do with it. Tucked in a Singaporean tech co-innovation space, TurtleTree Labs is growing milk, cellularly, in a lab. Inspired by a lack of clean, raw milk in the region, they are producing fluid milk identical to what comes out of a cow, or a human, or even a snow leopard. Learn how they plan to introduce this to the market from inside-out and make a global impact.
