"When I was first introduced to the SLS Grow concept it was an innovative idea for providing containerized grow centers. It also had proven Terraponics technology combined with other unique innovations that made it ideal for worldwide food production applications as well as growing great produce here at home in the USA.
As we have developed the original idea and added more patented technology to the SLS Grow systems, the original concept has evolved and grown to serve the domestic consumer. With recent events revealing significant flaws in our energy infrastructure and distribution networks, there's never been a greater demand from American families to ensure their food security as well as to improve the quality of their vegetables and fruit, to grow organic year round, and to be able to do it in all climates. This also expands the appeal of SLS Terraponic grow systems across the globe - everywhere that homemakers want to be certain they can provide the best food for their families under virtually any conditions.
What we also discovered is that currently the most expensive part of consumers being supplied with healthy vegetables is their transportation and other carbon-producing uses of farm machinery. The more we looked into this, and realized the advantages that the SLS Grow systems could provide consumers, the more we became excited to have the opportunity to bring the farm to the consumer instead of growing food the traditional way.
Once we developed our patented technologies to get our SLS Grow systems to Net Zero energy, we achieved our first goal - we are ready to go to market and offer these exciting and innovative Terraponic SLS Grow systems to tech savvy growers, families and farmers worldwide."
"For me the vision for the latest form of the SLS Grow system was influenced by the pandemic food shortages and increasing attacks on our energy infrastructure from both hostile hackers and major ecological disasters driven by global warming - all factors which I believe will intensify moving forward.
The only way to ensure true food security in our SLS Grow systems was to remove the need for external energy. Using terraponics not only provides the possibility for organic certification when used commercially but also acts as a forgiving medium to grow with making great results more achievable for individuals to control their food production without engineering or farming degrees. Most people can get water and soil without relying on complex supply chains, but power is more problematic.By making the SLS Grow system indoors and net zero energy we can bring high capacity food production to chronically underserved areas without access to quality agricultural land or a stable political environment.
My final driving factor was to provide people the ideal opportunity to get back in contact with their food. Educational benefits from growing optimized terraponic-based nutritious and great tasting produce should drive better eating habits and a more ecologically aware consumer - benefiting overall health for both the Earth and our Families and Communities.
SLS Grow is now poised to become the thought leaders, trainers and facilitators for a new and modern approach to point-of-use technological farming - addressing the needs of individual users, under-served communities, and Inner City Groups for high quality, affordable food security, with inclusivity and sustainability at the core of our mission.
We are also creating key relationships with established farming experts to improve food production on existing farms to help reduce their carbon footprint and to do our part in helping achieve their carbon reduction goals while increasing yields, profitability and reducing the food waste endemic in the current food production and distribution systems
The SLS Grow Team is excited to be involved in this innovative and Carbon Neutral opportunity - now it's the consumers turn to join our mission..."
Driven by a mutual passion for the best quality produce, grown sustainably in a Net Zero optimized environment - we've come together to build the best Vertical Farming Systems that are Certified 100% Organic!
