Here at Tiger Corner Farms we know that education is essential for change. That is why we are proud to be working with local schools from Kindergarten to College to usher in a new era of innovative farming. Our work within our community has brought hyper-local greens into school lunches while also inspiring new sustainable agriculture programs and enhancing existing course work with fresh ideas.
In partnership with the Ashley Ridge High School Agriculture Program and Vertical Roots, we bring more than 2,000 heads of fresh lettuce into school lunches every week! Agriculture students learn how our systems work and the differences between traditional farming and aeroponics.
Cadets earning a sustainability/environmental studies minor are running one of our farms as part of their coursework. The produce they grow remains on campus and is served in the mess hall. Now that’s smart eating!
Our company began by seeing a need in our own community: not enough people have access to fresh, healthy food. We believe that our container farm systems have the potential to transform areas by empowering individuals to grow whenever, wherever they live.
