Jerry Martin – a former Viet Nam vet – has started a hydroponic lettuce business that he hopes will be a model for veterans. Martin has adopted the “Freight Farms” model of a hydroponic farm enterprise inside a shipping container.
The idea is to give an identity to the produce that it was raised by a veteran. So if you know of a veteran that wants to get into farming in the city, you can link them to: https://www.vetveggies.com/home.html
