US lettuce grower appoints former congressman as new member of advisory board

Living Greens Farm (LGF), the largest vertical, indoor aeroponic farm in the U.S. that provides year-round fresh salads, salad kits, microgreens and herbs, has announced that Joe Donnelly, former congressman and senator from Indiana, has joined LGF’s Advisory Board, effective January 2021.

In his new position, Donnelly will be providing LGF’s leadership critical insights related to their planned national rollout, which is scheduled to begin later this year. Donnelly served on several committees during his tenure in Congress, including the Federal Agriculture committee, so he is an enthusiastic supporter of sustainable controlled environment agriculture.

“Living Greens Farm’s business model has a lot going for it,” says Donnelly. “It is a huge step forward for the environment, great for the retailer, and provides incredibly fresh, premium-quality products for the consumer. It helps bring us into the future of farming.”

LGF has been successfully serving customers in the upper Midwest for the past two years. Their growth in this area has led to expansion plans to other parts of the country.

“Adding Senator Donnelly to our Advisory Board serves our expansion plans well,” said George Pastrana, president and CEO of Living Greens Farm. “He will serve as a key partner as LGF promotes its vision and commercial know-how through the various markets we will serve.”
