Eden Grow Systems, a NASA spinoff, announced a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held to celebrate a new vertical indoor farm location featuring Eden Grow Towers in the Niels Esperson Building, a storied landmark in Downtown Houston. Accessible by Houston's famous downtown tunnels, this new vertical farm installation will allow Eden Grow Systems to better acquaint people with its groundbreaking AgTech and expand its mission to create self-reliance for families and communities where fresh food is not readily available.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Saturday, January 27, from 4:30 - 6:30 PM at 808 Travis St., and the public is invited to attend. Vertical farms will be on display, and Eden Grow Systems' leadership will be on hand to discuss its technology, its potential for the future, and how building residents will be growing their own food.
"Esperson aims to be a 'Vertical Entrepreneurial Village' where wealth creators live, work, and play. In that context, we have teamed up with Eden Grow Systems to become a vertical indoor farm where our people grow their own food on every floor of our building," said Dougal Cameron, Manager of the Esperson Building.
"With commercial real estate continuing to suffer in most major metropolitan areas, Eden is pioneering a new and innovative way of taking these spaces and breathing new life into them. We see a future where every unused space can be transformed in profitable farms, creating new jobs, better food security, and a healthier way of growing for our planet. This is the future, and we are excited to be a part of it."
