US: How a container farm is improving access to fresh produce in St. Louis

The gold standard of farm-to-table is fresh produce that’s available 365 days a year, not dependent on weather and grown in a sustainable way. FH365, founded by Demetrius Bledsoe, takes advantage of new container farm technology allowing fresh vegetables to be grown almost anywhere at a modest investment.

FH365 is also a platform to train people for this growing new agriculture industry. This is particularly useful in neighborhoods that know little about farming. The opportunity is not just for quality, fresh food but also to get people involved in the experience and provide a new source of jobs in the new hydroponic farms. It all makes for a truly renewable and sustainable community resource. 

As the father of four daughters, who participated in our backyard garden, I’ve seen what happens when people feel a connection to their food. It becomes more than just sustenance. It’s now an important and desirable part of their lives. FH365 isn’t the solution to all our needs, but it is a creative and effective step in the right direction that will help our local community in so many ways.
