The Coalition for Food Security (CFS) plans to implement climate-smart practices related to indoor hydroponic vertical farming and optimize environmental climate control management to create a voluntary climate-smart produce marketplace. This would incentivize greenhouse gas reduction practices along the vegetable supply chain through direct partnerships between underserved producers and corporate buyers, enabling small and underserved producers to sell their produce directly to corporations.

The CFS plans to design and market a franchise program to incentivize minority landowners and underserved producers to adopt climate-smart agriculture practices demonstrated at the pilot farm. In addition, CFS would provide internships to HBCU students to participate in our project and other franchise programs for graduating students to start agricultural businesses.
