Highlander Greenhouse

A partnership of 75 North & No More Empty Pots

About Project

The 17,500 square foot greenhouse will accommodate the year-round, vertical farming of fresh produce like leafy greens, botanicals, and other value-added products. The facility will additionally house a rentable commercial kitchen, a research lab for product development, classroom space for education programs and on-the-job training, and storage for food distribution services.

The Highlander Accelerator’s greenhouse programs will build upon the current work executed by No More Empty Pots to address the longstanding need for increased cold and dry storage, packaging and fulfillment for distribution needs, specialized processing, and closed-loop recycling.
