Join your host Stephen Ritz, founder of Green Bronx Machine, for a tour of True Garden, a solar-powered, water-conserving vertical aeroponic food farm that is the first of its kind. Located near the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Mesa, AZ, this 4,500 sq. ft. greenhouse — smaller than an NBA basketball court — grows 220,000 lbs of vegetables per year, more food than 10 acres of land. See the 70,000 plants True Garden grows on 328 vertical tower gardens at any given moment and learn how you can get involved on a corporate, community, school or home level to grow healthy food. Come hungry, pick your own morning snack, and taste the difference.
