Foodie and health-conscious consumers demand to know EXACTLY where their food is coming from—but the surest way to eat local, fresh, and healthy is simply to grow it yourself.

GardenBox is a food ecommerce product that lets anyone grow nutrient-packed micro greens and herbs with ease. Targeting a B2C breakout market, GardenBox is a convenient box subscription service that delivers pre-seeded garden trays containing our specially dehydrated soilless growing mix—customers simply open the box and add water to begin growing, right on their windowsill or patio. Each month, GardenBox comes curated with new varieties of greens and herbs, and include expert recipes to give customers a dash of culinary inspiration.

Opportunities exist to capitalize on the rapidly-growing food ecommerce market—Blue Apron and HelloFresh are reinventing grocery supply and retail experiences. But GardenBox will become THE household brand for instant kitchen micro greens and herbs gardens, revealing the local foods market opportunity that already exists for artisan and Grow-It-Yourself food ecommerce products.

Seamlessly integrating with the convenience of GardenBox subscriptions, the GreenTower vertical farm offers a turnkey and scalable product solution for restaurants and food retailers that want a way to TANGIBLY communicate their shared commitment to their own customers’ core food values: sourcing fresh and local. The vertically-rotating GreenTower also adds intangible marketing value for food businesses committed to sourcing local—an intangible that our research shows is not at all insignificant. That’s because the GreenTower product itself physically demonstrates a shared commitment of food values, in a way that printing the ambiguous words “locally sourced” on a menu or signage simply does not comparably communicate.

With GardenBox and the GreenTower vertical farm, it has never been easier for anyone to begin growing fresh micro greens and herbs—and because they're harvested only right as they're enjoyed, GardenBox greens contain much greater nutrient density than store-bought greens, and will never go bad in the refrigerator. The local foods movement is here to stay—join it with GardenBox by GreenTowers.

The Founder and and a number of the principle players of Green Towers were students in entrepreneurship classes I teach at Penn State University. They are special young man who possess a real passion for the work of creating a business that will be of real benefit to its customers and the world. Over the last two years I have watched them work through many tough challenges that entrepreneurs typically face, and believe that their resolve to create a successful, sustainable business is stronger than ever. They have a real vision of how the company can succeed and are working extremely hard every day to turn that vision into reality. I highly recommend them.

I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for GreenTowers, LLC for the Yield Lab Accelerator run by f6S. I have known the team for over two years now, and I have seen them pitch in a variety of venues and competitions. Time and again, I am impressed by their passion and dedication to their vision and their company, and they have been one of the most celebrated student start-ups that we have seen come through Penn State in recent years. No matter what barriers they faced, they have found ways to overcome them and use them to their team's advantage. The team continues to evolve and pivot as they gain insight into the market and explore new product options, yet they remain committed to success and work hard to bring in the talent, skills, and partners that they need to succeed. This opportunity comes at a great time for the team as they have a solid foundation on which to expand and leverage new partnerships to transform how we think about and grow our own food.
