Seabrook Garden Club Meeting and Field Trip – November 8th

Please Join the Seabrook Island Garden Club November 8th for a Field Trip

Vertical Roots
Growing local lettuce the smart, safe, and sustainable way
November 8, 2019
9:30am to 2:00pm

Vertical Roots and its parent company AmplifiedAg started 3 years ago with an idea – melding warehouse management software with horticulture. A successful trial pod off of Main Street in Summerville has blossomed into a facility now located in Daniel Island and 30 production containers. More of these “container pod farms” are on the way, with groundbreaking for a new site in Columbia with double the output coming soon. Lettuce grown in these containers, retrofitted and customized, are distributed to local restaurants, grocery stores, and donated to food organizations in South Carolina.

Learn more about Vertical Roots on our field trip November 8th. If you haven’t already signed-up…Sign-up NOW at seabrookislandgardenclub@gmail.com

Meet at the Oyster Catcher Community Center, for a regular business meeting at 9:00 am. We will depart from the Oyster Catcher Parking lot after the meeting approximately, 9:30am. When you sign-up, please indicate if you will need a ride or would be willing to drive. Carpooling is available. We should return by 1pm-2pm.
