Mission & Vision

We are a growing community committed to helping people achieve healthier & more sustainable
lifestyles through Better Agricultural Methods.

Our vision is to offset the negative environmental and social impact of conventional agriculture &
the standard American diet by growing responsibly & building communities around healthy
living.

Health

  • No​ ​pesticides​ ​or​ ​herbicides​ ​on​ ​our​ ​plants​, so none enter your body. The active
    chemical in round-up, the most common and heavily utilized herbicide in conventional
    agriculture interferes with human “gut health” and contributes to chronic disease.
  • Non-GMO,​ ​always​. Ever notice how gluten intolerance wasn’t really a thing a few
    decades ago? Genes in crops are modified at a microscopic level and the body
    sometimes doesn’t recognize the genetics of the modified organism and will react with
    an immune response.
  • Microgreens​ ​are​ ​4-6x​ ​as​ ​nutritionally​ ​dense​ ​as​ ​their​ ​adult​ ​counterparts,​ and they
    provide some of the most bioavailable form of micronutrients possible for the body.
  • Moms​ ​had​ ​it​ ​right​ ​when​ ​they​ ​told​ ​us​ ​to​ ​eat​ ​our​ ​veggies,​ and we are growing the
    cleanest, most nutritious veggies possible.
  • Traditional​ ​produce​ ​in​ ​grocery​ ​stores​ could​ ​be​ ​robbed​ ​of​ ​valuable​ ​nutrition​ by
    having been harvested up to 1 week before they were actually ripe, then have a transit
    through several states over the course of weeks before being purchased. All the while,
    the nutrients that were at their peak when that produce was harvested (assuming it was
    fully ripe) is diminishing over time. We close that gap.

Sustainability

  • No​ ​pesticides​ ​or​ ​herbicides,​ ​&​ ​No​ ​chemical​ ​fertilizers​. This helps to offset chemical runoff and reduce “dead zones” in the ocean, protecting marine wildlife.
  • Non-GMO,​ ​always​. This helps preserve organic & heirloom variety seeds & plant species.
  • Utilizes​ ​space​ ​more​ ​efficiently​ than traditional agriculture by going vertical, increasing growable land area.
  • Growing​ ​directly​ ​inside​ ​the​ ​city​ ​reduces​ ​CO2​ emissions due to less transportation needs to get produce to customers.
  • 30%​ ​of​ ​all​ ​grocery​ ​store​ ​produce​ ​goes​ ​to​ ​landfill​ ​annually.​ BAMBOX? We scale our operations with our memberships, and donate any excess produce.
  • Adaptive​ ​reuse​ ​of​ ​abandoned​ ​or​ ​otherwise​ ​unusable​ ​buildings​ could be the future homes of indoor farming, adding social value.
  • 98%​ ​less​ ​water​ ​than​ ​traditional​ ​farming​, due to efficiently designed growing spaces & recirculation

The​ ​structure​ ​of​ ​the​ ​American​ ​lifestyle​ ​should​ ​not​ ​facilitate​ ​disease.
​​Lifestyle,​ ​by​ ​default,​ ​should​ ​facilitate​ ​thriving​ ​in​ ​optimum​ ​health.
