🍀Vertical Farming Weekly - March 18th, 2022

Happy day after St. Patricks day to all you Vertical Farming Podcast fanatics!

And to those who aren't Irish or don't care about the christianization of 400s AD Ireland, happy Friday!

Slow news week these past few days. Although I did enjoy reading about spaces where companies set up their vertical farms. Like this one in an underground parking garage in France.

Hopefully next week will be a little more interesting. Sunday is the first day of spring after all!

Enjoy the sunshine!

This Week in Vertical Farming

In case you missed it...

Take a look back into the early days of Season 4 as Harry talks to Rosario Iacono - Founder of Kasveista about the humble tomato. Learn more about tomatoes and Kasveista here or wherever you get your podcasts.

Join Harry Duran, host of Vertical Farming Podcast, as he welcomes to the show Rosario Iacono. Rosario is the Founder of Kasveista, a concept stage startup aiming to produce open-source seeds and seedlings for vertical farming. Their goal is to help modern vertical farms expand their range of products by providing seeds and seedlings of tomato of varieties specifically selected for vertical farming.

Today, Harry and Rosario talk about the incredible work Rosario is doing at Kasveista and why he chose to focus on the tomatoes as his first crop. Rosario talks about the incredibly vast varieties of tomatoes and shares tips for those who want to grow tomatoes at home. They explain the open source model and why it’s critical to Rosario’s business. Finally, Rosario talks about what’s next for Kasveista, what excites him about the future and how we can educate the masses on vertical farming.
