Governor Hochul has announced an indoor farming pilot project with Harlem Grown that will increase the year-round availability of fresh fruits and vegetables for local underserved families and further research on indoor growing conditions and crop production. Funders include New York Power Authority and R&D institute EPRI. A shipping container outside a NYC Housing Authority building will be used. “This is about food, environmental sustainability and food justice,” said Tony Hillery, Founder and CEO of Harlem Grown.
