This Week in Vertical Farming

In case you missed it...

Michael Sichenzia - Managing Director at Go Global Advisors. Listen here or wherever you get your podcasts.

Join Harry Duran, host of Vertical Farming Podcast, as he welcomes to the show Michael Sichenzia. Michael is the Managing Director at Go Global Advisors and today, he shares his passion for bringing food to communities and what led him to pursue work in the vertical farming industry.

Specifically, Michael speaks to the intricacies of developing container farms, everything from getting zoning approval from the local or city government to what he looks for when building a team. Michael is highly mission-focused and wants to leave a legacy of making the world a better place, or at the very least trying to. Michael touches on his involvement in the From Mary With Love project, his relationship with Freight Farms and his belief that education about the vertical farming industry comes through empowerment.

On this episode of CropTalk #KyleTalksAgTech I speak with Rick Drescher, Corporate Managing Director at Savills North America. Topics include the importance of knowing your energy needs as accurately and as early as possible, looking at energy availability first to select the right site, and a friendly reminder that not all utility companies are created equal.
