Join us for the January 25 Tech Talk® as PowerGrow shares how its innovative Greenhouse as a Service model can help farmers grow eight to 12 times more produce per acre, while using 95 percent less water. PowerGrow, one of 52 start-up companies housed in the Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology, builds patented, renewable energy-powered, high-tech glass commercial greenhouses that give growers the opportunity to maximize yield, conserve capital, preserve natural resources, solve labor problems and earn greater profits.

During the Tech Talk, the PowerGrow team will explain how the startup designs, finances, builds, owns and operates greenhouses that allow farming operations to deliver locally-grown, fresh produce 365 days a year, regardless of weather. For more information about PowerGrow, read the “PowerGrow Turning Fallowed Land into Financial Success” story in WG&S Magazine and join us for the Tech Talk on Thursday, January 25.
