🌿Vertical Farming Weekly - February 18th, 2022

Welcome back to the all-new Vertical Farming Weekly! We appreciate your support as we reach issue #3 of our new newsletter.

In the news this week we have a story about a new vertical farm coming to my home state, Pennsylvania, not too far from where I grew up. It's great to see what was once a tired area come onto the future of agriculture as we know it.

Make sure you listen to our latest episode featuring Michael Sichenzia, Managing Director at Go Global Advisor, where he and Harry discuss what it takes to launch a successful vertical farm.

Once again, thank you all for your continued support of Vertical Farming Weekly.

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.
