ISSN

AeroFarms in Newark, NJ, USA, is an urban farm that grows without sun or soil in a fully controlled indoor
environment. AeroFarms is the first and only agriculture company to date to be honored by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation as one of the Circular Economy 100. The design of the system permits the pesticide-free cultivation of nutritious produce in an area with poor air quality, seven percent unemployment, and significant public health problems. AeroFarms has a working farm in a school: proximity to the produce as it is grown encourages the students to adopt and maintain healthy eating habits.
