Chad Taylor of Jardin Vertical comes from a long line of farmers and ranchers and he is passionate about the work he does. Both his parents and grandparents grew up on farms and passed down a wealth of agricultural knowledge and experience.
Jardin Vertical's hyper-local business model tackles one of the biggest environmental problems of food production; transportation. Produce generally goes through multiple stops before arriving at its final destination, often hundreds of miles from the source. The vision is to produce, process, package, and distribute everything in-house.
Jardin Vertical also sourced environmentally friendly, long-lasting, energy-efficient LEDs. "There are dozens of companies out there that claim they make the best lights; but if you take your time and dig into the details, nothing compares to the Avici," says Chad Taylor
"These high-power horticultural lights are built in an ethical manufacturing facility and, with a lifespan three times the industry standard, they won't end up in a landfill after five-ten years like most LEDs. They also feature a programmable spectrum, letting cultivators mimic optimum lighting conditions for any plant and adapt to new horticultural research."
Jardin Vertical has broken ground on their first facility and has five farms planned to extend their coverage, offering people the chance to make responsible and delicious choices.
